Introducing: Sea Pinks
Belfast's Sea Pinks is the project of Neil Brogan, who also is the drummer for Belfast band Girls Names. And he has help from his Girls Names buddies, as Neil moves to the guitar and mic, Clair Miskimmin moves to the drum kit and Girls Names frontman Cathal Cully moves to bass. The band delivers achingly perfect jangle pop and moodier indie rock, and really should be much better known. As a get acquainted offer (we must admit that we had nothing to do with it), you can download a new track below.
Sea Pinks has released three albums. Freak Waves was released in October 2012, and if you are an indie pop fan, you owe it to yourself to try and find a copy. There is a bit of a '60s British invasion vibe, a bit of a beach boys vibe, and maybe a bit of the Dunedin sound. Overall, an infectious mix.
The band's second album is Dead Seas, which was released in September 2011.
The first album is Youth is Wasted, released in the fall of 2010.
