High times for Low Sea

LOW Sea describe their new album Remote Viewing as 'grey disco' and is synth pop of a very European nature.

Now based in Ireland, the duo - Bosnian-born Billie and Bobby D from Liverpool - first met while living in the United States. 

Billie had spent her early years in Bosnia until the war broke out, during which she fled to live in San Francisco (where she initially became unwillingly part of a cult). 

Bobby took a more insular route to the formation of the band, one involving an endless headphone cycle of A-ha, Cocteau Twins, 808 State and My Bloody Valentine.

Having released a mini album on US-based Lefse Records (How To Dress Well, Neon Indian) they conspired with Dell'Orso records with a view to releasing a narcotic pop album, having bonded over a love for AR Kane, New Order and Lali Puna.

Much of the album was recorded and self produced in their current residence, a cottage overlooking the light house and harbour in an isolated fishing village on the Irish coast. 

However Low Sea had to pinch themselves when the legendary Stephen Hague (Pet Shop Boys, New Order, PIL) agreed to mix some of the tracks on the album, including the title track, Remote Viewing, which is also the lead single. 

You can listen to - and view - title track Remote Viewing below...
