In 2012, The Eastern Sea, featuring vocalist and songwriter Matt Hines, released a beautiful album titled Plague. There is something awe-inspiring about its melodic, multi-textured construction that gives it its emotional intensity, combined with Hines’ vocals and intimate glimpses into specific moments in time. Plague had fans pining for more.
Something new did come about this year, in the form of their new single, “Silver Spoon.” But it poses the question: Does this mean a new album is on the way? Side One Track One‘s John Laird had the very same question in mind, after sharing the new song early last month, “…but I’m guessing that the band will get there soon enough.”
No official word on that just yet, but you just might hear more new tracks when you see The Eastern Sea tomorrow night at Red 7, 611 E. 7th St. Sharing the bill with them are dream-gaze quartet Little Radar and synth pop band Scenery. All good. Doors at 9 p.m., and the music starts at 10 p.m. Very recommended.
