If you’re familiar with the Belfast-based indie group Girls Names, then checking out the band’s side project Sea Pinks is a must.
Although the Girls Names drummer Neil Brogan started Sea Pinks as a solo endeavour, he recruited his fellow band members Claire Miskimmin and Cathal Cully to help him launch his new band back in 2010. (Brogan recently stated in an interview that while Girls Names is influenced by “80s indie,” Sea Pinks is inspired by “60s garage/psych”).
Sea Pinks released their debut album Youth is Wasted in September of 2010, followed by the Peripheral Vision EP in January of 2011. The band’s latest album Dead Seas, was released in September of 2011 via CF Records, and is said to be inspired by “fountains, fossils, phantoms and faded seaside glamour.”
With vocals like Julian Casablancas (of The Strokes) and moves like Ian Curtis (of Joy Division), along with catchy drum beats and surf rock vibes, it’s almost impossible not to dig the video for “Fountain Tesserae,” which was released as a single off the album Dead Seas last year:
