Our friends at Bleeding Heart Recordings bring us news of another talented Brighton based act for us to sink our ears into. Step forward Seadog, the dream pop creation of singer songwriter Mark Benton and musician Max Numajiri, who met while studying at Brighton University, alongside such notable alumni as Bat for Lashes’ Natasha Khan.
Full of melodic guitars and glockenspiel twinkle the five tracks on their latest EP Transmitter have certainly impressed us, from the swirling intro to the title track to the catchy lead track Haunted there’s welcome echoes of other fine Brighton originated acts such as The Leisure Society and Miserable Rich. For those that like even less known acts, Brighton’s Robot Heart, also on Bleeding Heart Records, is another good point of reference.
As with all good EPs, this seems woefully short. Looking forward to a forthcoming album from Mark and Max already.
