Seahawks, the collaboration of Jon Tye and Pete Fowler, will release a new album of mystic pop, sparkling new age, and psychedelic ambience in November.
Infinite Echo is the British pair’s first album since Eyes of the Moon, released in 2019. All 10 tracks emerged from a series of scraps and vignettes informed by a “breadth of eclectic chillness,” we’re told, from mid-’80s digital new age in the Higher Octave vein and Michael McDonald remixed by Oneohtrix Point Never. These were fleshed out with Lyra Pramuk’s “Siren Songs” application and Holly Herndon’s “Holly+” software.
Despite the technological innovations at play, the record ranks among the most “overtly emotive” in the pair’s decade-plus discography, with soprano saxophone, synths, and snippets of heavenly voice sitting atop low-slung bass. We’re told that it’s “more DMT than marijuana.”
“The results sound elevated and ineffable, like music heard at the edge of dreams, hinting at worlds yet to come,” says Cascine, the New York label behind the release.
Since forming in Cornwall, England, in 2009, Tye and Fowler have collaborated with Laraaji, Peaking Lights, Laurel Halo, and more
