RELEASE DATE: 8th March 2004
FORMATS: CD, LP
Lay Of The Land is the debut full-length from Seachange. This dazzling album showcases a sextet bursting with talent, vitality and bright ideas. With raw energy, intelligent song writing and a wilfulness to do their own thing, Seachange
have forged a dramatic path through the various guises of rock’n’roll.
The band met at Nottingham University in the late 90s and whilst sharing a haunted house together, their appetite for
musical exploration was ignited and fuelled. Wielding escalating guitars, violin and an enigmatic frontman in Dan
Eastop, they marry a variety of influences to create their own definition of magic.
Through their first couple years of playing up and down the UK, Seachange have established themselves as a deadly live
proposition with a flair for the epic coupled a ferocity that can’t be faked. Seachange aren’t merely adept at a crazy
melange of the anthemic & hypnotic; there are some brilliant songs happening inside the tornado. And the end results are
something undefinably great. This band have got charisma and presence to spare, but they could wear paper bags over their
skulls and still get the job done. The Best New Band In Britain yet…The Best Debut Album Since ‘Turn On The Bright
Lights’…the most hyperbole filled press release in label history. Catch the fever.
