Sun Seeker is proud to announce their Biddeford EP, which will see a release on July 14, 2017 on Third Man Records. In anticipation of the release, the group has shared the EP’s first single “Won’t Keep Me Up At Night.” The track premiered via Consequence of Sound, who called it “a contemplative slice of nostalgia… “Won’t Keep Me Up At Night” features introspective lyrics with a melancholy feel, but there’s still a relaxed optimism in their sun-kissed, timeless sound.” The song is available to stream or embed HERE, and album pre-orders (which come with an instant download of the track) can be found HERE. The band will be celebrating the EP release with a show at The Blue Room at Third Man Records Nashville on July 14. Stay tuned for U.S. tour dates, which will be announced soon.
Sun Seeker has drawn applause for their unhurried breed of Cosmic American Music and with Biddeford, their long awaited debut EP, the Nashville-based band more than affirm their promise. The EP follows Sun Seeker’s widely acclaimed Third Man debut single, 2016’s “Georgia Dust” — voted “Best Song of 2016” by The Nashville Scene — b/w “No One Knows” (TMR322). Biddeford sees Alex Benick (guitar, vocals), Asher Horton (bass guitar, vocals), and Ben Parks (drums, vocals) exploring nostalgia, melancholy, and emotional turmoil via laid-back psychedelia pollinated with tight harmonies, classic folk songcraft, and country rock spirit, an ageless approach that is simultaneously archetypal and now utterly their own. Songs like “With Nothing (But Our Last Words)” and the yearning “Won’t Keep Me Up At Night” meld Benick’s candid lyricism and stark melodies with creative arrangement and production technique, fashioning a sonic world to match their interior emotional scope.
Now all 21, the “bunch of musical friends” at the core of Sun Seeker have been collaborating in some sense since eighth grade. The trio formed a loose collective of combos, playing together in each other’s bands, with Sun Seeker officially convening in January 2013. The band became fast favorites on the Nashville scene, earning word of mouth and a fervent fan following via an electric live presence and a striking collection of songs. Sun Seeker will celebrate Biddeford with intense national touring, not dissimilar to the approach they took in building a hometown following. The band plan to use the time between runs to record their now eagerly anticipated debut album, still determined to keep venturing forward, developing and expanding the distinctive parameters of their own intrepid sound and vision.
