London duo The Sea return with second album Rooftops, produced by John Cornfield, who took the reigns behind producing albums for the like of Oasis, Supergrass and Muse. The band had a nice amount of success coming off the release of their debut record Get It Back, touring all over the seas and performing at a couple of festivals too.
Rooftops is a fun listen packed full of solid, catchy tracks. With nobody ranging too risky, The Sea have developed their indie rock sound and crafted it into a sure fire way to create a few hits. Any of these songs could easily join New York as singles because of their immersive elements, and I would be surprised if The Sea didn’t get any radio play.
It’s a great listen that proves that The Sea haven’t succumbed to the dreaded “second album curse” and if it still sounds this good when I’m not in a state where I’ve had no sleep, then this could easily be a favourite for many people over these sunny months.
