After releasing their debut EP last year, London-based psych-pop outfit Cristobal and the Sea are back with new single ‘Sunset Of Our Troubles’, taken from their forthcoming debut album entitled ‘Sugar Now’, which is due later this year via City Slang.
‘Sunset Of Our Troubles’ offers a little glimpse into the band’s upcoming full-length & sees the four-piece return their warm, inviting, glossy sounds. It’s a song about finding the light in those darker places & comfort in those around us, making for a perfect summer jam.
Cristobal and the Sea are a proper European union of a band, if ever there was one. The quartet hail from four corners of our diverse continent. They are: Alejandro Romero from Spain (bass/vox), João Seixas from Portugal (guitar/vox), Leïla Seguin from Corsica/France (flute/vox) and Josh Oldershaw from old Blighty (drums).
After signing to City Slang (Sinkane, Caribou, Junip, Lambchop) and releasing their debut EP ‘Peach Bells’last year, the band spent the duration of February locked in a studio in Portugal working on their forthcoming debut album with producer Rusty Santos (Animal Collective, Owen Pallett, Beach House, Ariel Pink). Entitled ‘Sugar Now’, the record is set for release later this year, with this new single ‘Sunset Of Our Troubles’displaying the band’s mystical, dreamy & enticing sounds wonderfully, offering a little glimpse of what to expect from the forthcoming debut.
Young, enormously gifted, beautifully boho, very charismatic and incredibly laid back, Cristobal And The Sea are devouring life as only the young and carefree know how.
