The mid-point of the lunar month sees the moon completely illuminated as viewed from Earth. It’s next occurrence is on October 8th, when the light of the full moon will appropriately be cast upon the release of Sea Lion’s second EP of 2014, ‘Big Moon EP’.
Linn’s latest EP (and her second this year, following ‘Cobra’s Eyes‘) is a further beguiling insight into her cautious and enveloping world. Occupying the same space as the early works of Cat Power and Kate Bush, recorded at home, alone in her bedroom, these six haunting tracks perfectly reflect the intimate surroundings they were created in and provide a brief glimpse at the captivating music that’s to come.
Lead track ‘Heroes’ is a perfect example of this, as Sea Lion coos over organ reverb and flickering electronics.
‘Big Moon EP (Early Songs)’ is available via iTunes and streaming sites from October 8th. Sea Lion is currently recording her debut album proper, due early 2015.
2. Too Long (To Ever Stop)
3. Big Moon
4. Water And Fire
