Sea Oleena Premieres New Single, ‘Paths,’ From Her Forthcoming ‘Shallow’ Allbum
As Sea Oleena prepares for the release of her new album, 'Shallow,' on Sept. 30, Lefse Records has whetted appetites with a new taste of the record in the form of the latest single, 'Paths.' You can listen to the track in the player below.
The Canadian born songstress delivers in a big way on 'Paths,' creating a lush, dreamlike state that easily hypnotizes the listener. 'Paths' is an acoustic guitar driven dreamscape, painted with all sorts of ethereal colors that recalls Julie Chase's gorgeous 1989 album, 'Floating Into the Night,' which was scored by Angelo Badalamenti and written by the one and only David Lynch.
Born Charlotte Loseth, Sea Oleena has been creating her own brand of other-worldly pop for a few years now. With two dazzling EPs behind her, she raises the level on her upcoming full-length debut.
Awash in a psychedelic haze and taking cues from the likes of the Cocteau Twins, Slowdive and Mazzy Star, Oleena creates a flowing, almost cinematic wall of sound that is both light and dark in its sonic approach. Her voice -- as well as her songwriting -- are intriguing to say the least.
The album was recorded in various locations -- from music studios to bedrooms -- to create that warm and fuzzy feeling. Check out the LP's first single, 'If I'm,' below:
