Light by The Sea
As building a time machine is yet to seem impossible, with the power of sound, Davy Knobel and Eszter Anna Baumann were aiming to do it in their own way. During quarantine, they surrounded themselves with their favorite vinyls and concert tapes in their tiny apartment, which resulted in writing their own tracks, inspired by their great musical heroes. Light By The Sea's full-length album entitled Only Death Makes Icons (2021) was released shortly afterwards. With the help of producer and music-geek Eddy Bopp, they brought back the forgotten sound, as the listeners can hear a really special instrumentation and sound of tape, thanks to Eddy's studio equipment that even George Harrison and Genesis had used before. So far, four songs from the album (Eleanor, Crimson Sugar, Chelsea Is A Mermaid And She’s Soaking In, Mr Wonderman) have been accompanied by music videos, which immediately caught the international media’s attention. Since it is not often that a Dutch guitarist and composer makes music with a Hungarian artist, therefore in their music a really beautiful combination of the West and the East meet, as their sound consists of yacht rock, avant garde and folk music elements, and their lyrics are inspired by the ascension and fall of great heroes and sorrowful tragedies.
As in The Netherlands, only for a few weeks it was possible to play club shows, Light By The Sea luckily had a chance of touring in October 2021, playing two full-house record release shows, and supported Vive la Fête on big clubstages. As the goal is set regarding a more specific musical style, Light By The Sea are currently working on their new songs which will surely make the people move and get them into a trance, where even time traveling might be possible.
