Over the last few years indie rock has seen a rise in chamber pop artists that play intellectual and classically informed music, like Andrew Bird or a sedated Owen Pallet, and White Sea falls within that category. Although they do have a full line-up complete with bass and drums, the L.A. based group performed a stripped down version of songs from their latest release.
Fronted by Morgan Kibby former collaborator with M83, the White Sea duo worked through four tracks of violin, synth, and beautifully harmonized two part vocals. Their symphonic swells literally brought tears to the audience as they soon witnessed that they were watching something spiritual. With only an EP under their belts, the White Sea have a very refreshing, intense sound.
