Prolific and idiosyncratic singer-songwriter and ballad composer Sean Nicholas Savage will be releasing his new album Bermuda Waterfalon May 13th via revered Montreal label Arbutus Records (Grims, Majical Cloudz, Blue Hawaii).
Following 'Naturally' and 'Heartless' now comes the third preview of the album with 'Empire', which sees Sean's signature croon hover longingly over upbeat new romanticist soul and breezy keyboard-funk with a catchy falsetto chorus.
Bermuda Waterfall sees Savage's gift for bracing, timeless song craft and prowess as a philosopher reaching a new zenith across 12 tightly written pop songs packed with rich musical depths and devastating emotional gravity. It offers listeners the opportunity to observe the fascinating evolution of a truly one-of-a-kind artist and confident expansion of his musical palette: 'Darkness' and 'The Rat' see cinematic piano imbued with chilling honesty. 'Heartless' and 'Hands Dance' are carried by Spanish guitars and wouldn't feel out of place in an out of place John Hughes film, albeit a decidedly unusual one. Elsewhere, 'Empire' and 'Some Things Never Die' see Savage's lush harmonies hover longingly over new romanticist soul.
Along with this, Savage is will be playing a run of UK and EU tour dates in May and July.
