Earlier this August The Guardian featured newcomers Sea Moya as their new band of the week, describing them as ”accomplished and ambitious” which I would agree is the perfect way to describe this new German three-piece.
Drawing upon a wide range of unexpected influences, Sea Moya cooks up an interesting concoction of expansive psyche and hazy electronica, with a generous portion of afro beat and dreamy electronic funk thrown in for good measure. Their music has a progressive, highly percussive and textured sound which shares the same hazy production style of Flying Lotus and JDilla.
The band refer to themselves as a ‘beat trio’ which is a playful reference to the original era of jangle-pop and it is these psychedelic connections that gives them their far-out, bohemian sound. They write and produce all of their music, also mixing and mastering their own material too which allows them to experiment and explore with great freedom.
Sea Moya are to release their debut EP ‘Twins’ on 2 October via Heist or Hit Records and have just released a new video for their debut song ‘Do Things’, which premiered in the UK via Clash and in Germany via Noisey… (see video above)
