The new band from Incubus singer Brandon Boyd is nothing more than a masterpiece, he worked with Brendan O´Brien who produced, played guitars and keyboards on the album and on drums we find Josh Freese. Sons of the sea´s debut album is artsy, progressive, superclassy and hi-tech. It´s like we get the alternative rock of Dredg mixed with the smart pop of The Dissociatives and the genius feel for melodies like Prince.
Like a rocket, this album went straight to the top of my best of album list of 2013. Brandon has never sang this good before or perhaps he has, it´s just the heavenly melodies that feels overwhelming. I´m stunned!
For fans of the albums RoyWorld-Man in the machine, Everything Everything-Man alive, The Producers-Made in Basing Street.
