Premiere: Sea Priest - “Deadalus”.

17 Aug 2011 — Henning Lahmann
Here's a fresh and exclusive cut from the latest Solid Melts glory, the just released split between two Chicago-based artists, Famous Laughs and Sea Priest. While Ars Brevis, the other Sea Priest track that's been made public so far, is a pretty gloomy, dark wave-inspired synth business, the beautiful Deadalus starts by taking things to melancholic, almost folky realms, with slow-burning acoustic guitar harmonies and only very subtle synth incursions, before the whole track gently drowns in washes of distortion to end up with an almost shoegaze-y feel. A prettly little piece of dream pop all along. Order the limited C29 tape over here. Sea Priest - Deadalus
