Watch Seafoam Walls Perform “Dependency” and “Program” in Miami for “Neighborhoods”
Both tracks will appear on their debut LP XVI, out November 12 via Thurston Moore’s Daydream Library Series.
Yesterday, Miami trio Seafoam Walls revealed another single ahead of their debut album XVI which further helped to define the unique sound they’re toying with on the LP which they’ve fairly accurately described as “Caribbean jazzgaze,” and which, yeah, sounds exactly like jazzy shoegaze influenced by Caribbean music. This latest single, “A.I.,” is a chilled-out version of this formula incorporating a subtle hip-hop beat, recalling the dense lo-fi experimentation of a group like Spirit of the Beehive.
Recently the band took to vocalist/guitarist Jayan Bertrand’s backyard in Miami to film a “Neighborhoods” set in which they performed both XVI singles which preceded “A.I.,” expanding to a four-piece to create an interesting sonic force of dual acoustic guitars, upright bass, and sampler pad. “Dependency” kicks off with a fifth member also in the lineup, but she wanders off-screen after a few seconds. Watch the performance below.
