The Sea The Sea with Sarah Burton
February 14 @ 12:30 am - 2:30 am UTC
@ THE SEA THE SEA is an Upstate New York based indie folk-pop duo featuring what Huffington Post calls, “Two of the loveliest male-female voices you might ever hear this or any other year.” Paste Music / Daytrotter describes them as “defined by their infallible vocal harmonies and their unconventional song arrangements…a pop band only in their melodic infectiousness – otherwise they are at their best when subverting conventions.” The Sea The Sea has been featured on Audiotree, Paste Studio Sessions, and NPR’s Mountain Stage, as well as receiving praise from NPR (Heavy Rotation), American Songwriter, No Depression, Buzzfeed, Pitchfork, TED, and Parade. Their songs have earned features by Apple Music including “Best of the Week” and “A-List Singer/Songwriter,” and have received over 15 million streams on Spotify to date. @ Burton’s career started in 2006 with a broken heart, a broken down van, and a haphazard tour across Canada in a van named Lucky. This set the tone for an artist life driven by adventure, spontaneity, and a desire to connect with people from all walks of life. 3 Minivans, and several greyhound trips later, Sarah has played 200+ shows a year, released 4 albums and played many festivals across North America, finding and sharing the inspiration for hundreds of songs. Rooted in folk, and skirting pop, rock and country – Sarah’s music is a collage of her own adventures, and the people she meets along the way. Her songs have made their way to the big screen, earned college radio charting in US and Canada and commercial radio play in Canada and Europe. ‘GIVE ME WHAT I WANT’ One bad breakup, two robberies, a few trips to the ER, and moving to the West Texas desert are just a few of the turns that led to the creation of SARAH’s fifth studio album, Give Me What I Want. It’s a vignette of a new age wild west with songs about internet dating, crazy exes, getting older, and that feeling you get when everyone around you is in love and you’re not. In it, Sarah delivers an unapologetic demand with a finger in the air, howling with the underdogs who are sick of getting scraps. It’s a raw and real album that skirts Americana, folk, rock and country; the songs tell classic stories in a modern age from love and lust, to enchantment and disenchantment, and that constant search for fulfillment. Give Me What I Want was recorded in Austin at Jim Eno’s (Spoon) Public Hi-Fi studio, produced by Elijah Ford (who also plays guitars on the record) and engineered by Brad Bell (Spoon, Arcade Fire, The War On Drugs). Tracks feature Chris Konte on bass, Jason Baczynski on drums and percussion, as well as special guests: Tim Regan on keys/synth, Sam Kossler on pedal steel, Leigh Wallenhaupt on strings, Canadian folk trio Sweet Alibi on backing vocals, and Dave Quanbury on guitar and engineering in Canada
