Inspired by the music scene of the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s, the aim of Light By The Sea is to bring back the forgotten sound. Their artistic world consists of rock, avant-garde and folk elements with a catchy pop vibe.
Light By The Sea recorded their songs on tape with the help of producer Eddy Bopp, who went completely wild on the production, because a lot of recording techniques and equipment had come from Sound City, or had been used by artists like Genesis back then. In the studio there was nothing too crazy for Light By The Sea and Eddy Bopp in connection with experimenting and layering sounds. This will allow you to hear something you haven’t heard for a long time.
Getting inspirations from their role models — Dead Can Dance, U2, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Phil Collins, Clannad, Fleetwood Mac and The Dandy Warhols —, they map a unique sound of combining the old and the modern taste of music together.
