‘An entirely ridiculous and completely fantastic stew of riffing and vocal histrionics’
- The Guardian
‘The Sea – a brilliant band who we love’
- Fearne Cotton – Radio 1
True brothers in arms, Peter and Alex were both junior national surfing champions, representing Great Britain at major International events, living the surfing dream on the Cornish coast … and then they discovered rock n roll … which seemed to fit in neatly with the ‘surf, write songs, smoke spliff and write more songs’ lifestyle .
They then formed a two piece and started honing their craft, which gradually grew in its dominance of their collective days. Swapping boards for Guitars and drums, Alex and Peter started gigging in earnest – traveling the length and breadth of Europe in the mandatory battered van, collecting fans wherever they went… creating optimum noise with minimum band members and fuss.
A licensing deal swiftly followed, with major support from Germany, Italy and Benelux, The Sea broke all the rules and did it their way.
Alex then in a very untimely fashion also went and broke his neck, resulting in surgery and physio for an extended period of months… and understandably taking them off the circuit.
With a new EP release in hand called ‘High On’ and the continued support of the label, the boys are on form, have a new management company behind them and are ready to rattle cages and get the show on the road.
Tours of the UK and a run of European dates beckons, with new songs and an album on the horizon for spring 2014. With replenished fire in their souls, The Sea are certainly back
