The Sea Shall Not Have Them -

21 Jan 2022

Sifting through the DEBRIS - Bands and songs that inspired the creation of THE SEA SHALL NOT HAVE THEM’s latest album DEBRIS

Kate Bush - “The Man With The Child In His Eyes” She wrote this when she was 13, and recorded at 16? Who else does this? Chilling.

Massive Attack - “Voodoo In My Blood” Masters of groove and mood

Public Image Ltd - “Flowers Of Romance” Surely one of the strangest songs ever to be a top 40 hit

Siouxsie And the Banshees - “This Unrest” The Tinderbox album is a touchstone, and this is a highlight

Swans - “Mind/Body/Light/Sound” I’m only a recent convert to Swans early stuff, very compelling

The Church - “Another Century” Sublime yet unsettling beauty from a band that everyone knows, and yet doesn’t really know… bring on the next album

Chelsea Wolfe - “Hypnos” Love Chelsea’s guitar driven side, and her acoustic output is just as captivating

Jon Brion - “Peer Pressure” Such a gorgeous piece of scoring to a great scene

Nine Inch Nails - “La Mer” Love this side of NIN, maybe even more than the aggressive stuff

CAN - “Halleluwah” Such a groove… go listen to the full 20+ min version of it

The Cure - “The Funeral Party” Favourite song off my favourite album by my favourite band

Jesu - “Alone” Strong parallels between this album (Terminus) and the The Cure’s Faith, even down to the cover art. One of Justin Broadrick’s poppiest moments, delivered in his own unique style

Secret Machines - “3,4,5 Let’s Stay Alive” So great to have this band back, hopefully there’s more music to come

Hum - “Desert Rambler” Another band that made a great album, 22 years after their previous one. What a riff

HEADS. - “Loyalty” Very stoked to have Ed from HEADS. join us on our album. Very unique band

Palehorse/Palerider - “Nero” Thundering sounds from Denver Colorado

Jakob - “Everything All The Time” New Zealand’s finest - another band I hope have new music soon

Pink Floyd - “Echoes” Kings… now and forever. I revisit this song all the time
