More than 6 months have passed since we discovered the marvelous Old Sea Brigade. His love brought all kinds of better days listening to the debut EP, and there were times we could not listen to anything else. Like one of our favorite bands, The National, Old Sea Brigade has grown on us like tender and honest love does. We simply cannot live apart from it.
When we heard about a new single, we were immediately extasic. With all the problems that can exist with having really high expectations about something, the honest feeling of seeing that expectations completely fulfilled is one of the best realizations on earth. All the Same is just that. A complete reflection of quality. From the first guitar riffs, and the sensible drum bumps. To the way Ben Cramer’s voice emerges like a promise and feels like a gentle home-sweet-home calling. Everything sounds impeccable. The new Old Sea Brigade song is an extraordinary follow up to a brilliant career beginning and, once again, a serious soul-fulfilling exercise.
We’re hooked, once again.
P.S. Old Sea Brigade has just signed with Nettwerk Music Group (Alexi Murdoch, Father John Misty, Radical Face, Stereophonics). He has also reviled his debut album will be coming out next year. We’ll be anxiously waiting for it:
