With her debut album, 'Songs For The Ravens' being released to critical acclaim from the likes of The Guardian, The Independent and The Quietus, it seems like a natural step that Sea of Bees is now set to release one of the standout tracks from the album, the Americana tinged 'Sidepain', out on April 11 through Heavenly Recordings. With its poignant tales of whisky-drinking and broken hearts, 'Sidepain', an ode to Jenny Lewis, is brimming with heart and soul. Sea Of Bees delicate, disarming vocals wrap around the song and bring a child-like innocence which is impossible not to succumb to.
Having supported Smoke Fairies and headlined a Heavenly showcase tour with Trevor Moss & Hannah Lou and James Walbourne already this year, Sea Of Bees will be taking to road with John Grant throughout March. Watching Sea Of Bees live is utterly essential - her music takes on an otherworldly, hypnotic element and that voice, a startling instrument in itself, is truly brought to the fore. This string of dates will prove to be absolutely unmissable and a last chance to see Sea Of Bees on UK shores before the summer.
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
