Sea Pinks - Exploded View EP
The new Exploded View EP from Northern Ireland's Sea Pinks is now available, and it is as good as I had hoped and expected. Four tracks of jangling guitar pop with good melodies, and you can find welcome reminders of the early Creation records sounds here.. This isn't new territory, as fans of band from New Zealand, Glasgow, California and Seattle well know.

The title track and "Magpies Eyes" are the two noisier tracks, with the latter displaying some appealing guitar muscle. "PST" and "Pretty Pass" are gentler tunes that we haven't showcased on these pages before. You can stream the entire EP below, but first we'll offer a taste with "Pretty Pass" --
There are limited physical copies available. Digital downloads are available from Bandcamp, as well as Amazon, iTunes and other digital outlets. Here is a stream of all four tracks --
