Review: Sea Oleena “Shallow”

01 Oct 2014 — Sam Clark

Charlotte Loseth’s debut album has been years in the making. During a period of time outlined by the decline of Myspace and the advent of Soundcloud, the Montreal-based artist released two abbreviated efforts as Sea Oleena: a self-titled project in 2010 and 2011’s Sleeplessness. Both mini-albums were incredibly poignant, creating desolate landscapes from a small reserve of instruments and effects processors that slowly enveloped anyone on the receiving end. But despite the rapid-fire succession of her first two releases, Loseth has remained relatively dormant over the past three years, diligently crafting her wondrous full-length, Shallow.
