RHYTHM PASSPORT PRESENTS: SEAS OF MIRTH
Seas of Mirth have been stamping their own mark on modern music for the last decade, mixing up styles and genres while also being known for their aquatic twist. The band’s sound has been taken to a new level on their third full-length album Sub Marine Dreams. Recorded at London’s Total Refreshment Centre by producer Capitol K, this is a deep-ocean inspired odyssey and various sub marine themes lurk within each of the ten linked tracks.
The extensive instrument checklist includes xylophone, bouzouki, clav organ, accordion, and theremin (to name a few), joined by a shoal of effects and watery samples. The sonic span widens into areas of psyche, dark funk, jazz, disco, ambient, latin and chime-pop. Comparisons have been made to the likes of Cardiacs, Stereolab, Talking Heads, Parliament, Animal Collective and Frank Zappa.
After waiting a while, the ‘Mirth took their most ambitious 45 minutes of song craft on tour in 2021 and this will go well into 2022. Live, there is a huge emphasis to bring the tunes to life in an enthralling sensory experience, made possible with big luminous sea creature props emerging through the course of the set, and various interactive opportunities for the crowd. Seas Of Mirth have played at festivals such as Boomtown, Bearded Theory, Bestival, Nozstock and Beat Herder as well as many UK and EU tours to much acclaim. “A splendid set” – Mark Radcliffe “Refreshingly ridiculous” – PROG magazine
Support comes from the mindblowingly incredible and rememberable bang bangs of Hot Head Show and DJ Gorilla Man spinning eclectic tunes through the night.
