Seahawks - Starways
Seahawks chart a course for the outer realms of consciousness where sea meets sky and sky meets space. Two tracks new to vinyl from their esteemed “Escape Hatch” album and three inspired remixes blend into 37 minutes of overlapping dream states and mantric resonance. Setting sail with the wondrous ‘Valparaiso’, the siren like voice of Ed Macfarlane (Friendly Fires) calls the dancers to the beach, it’s silken glide so smooth some have asked if it’s Sade! Nick Mackrory (the man behind the gorgeous “Elle Dit” on Music For Dreams last year) creates an alternative cosmos that is even more blissed, like a lost Lucio Battisti gem sparkling in the sun. Picking up the pace disco viking Marius Circus enters the arena to create a woozy acid fever dream that throbs and pulses in a most heavenly way. Perfect for full moon beach jams and horizontal home hangs alike. On the flip “Starways” is without a doubt one of Seahawks finest creations, over 12 minutes of tropical kosmische odyssey that resolves into a glistening pool of crystal electronics, aquatic horns and celestial strings. A tonic for the mind and the body.
At the close of day Len Leise blesses us with a hazed subtropical jam where vapour tones float on an ancient ocean of bliss as organic beats massage the stress away. An antidote to all that is dark and dismal in these fractured times.
Lavishly presented in specially commissioned airbrush sleeve by Mervyn Beaver, this is Seahawks at their most extra!
