Hydrogen Sea’s shimmering new single ‘Blackest Skies’ is an exciting and tender ode to an epic love, transcending time and space.The band expands, but does not bargain its intensity. Their new incarnation allows Birsen Uçar and PJ Seaux to lay down ties with the laptop, and to include two brand new band members.
Hydrogen Sea’s shimmering new single ‘Blackest Skies’ explores the tender and exciting tale of two humans bound by love across time and space. In the video for ‘Blackest Skies’, the story is embodied by real life Belgian-Dutch coupleDauwke and Lynn, and is carefully captured by video director Jeffrey Roekens, who accompanied the cast into a contemporary museum and recorded some of their intimate moments.
Hydrogen Sea does not turn away from previous soundscapes, but exchanges digital elements in order to focus on an analogue journey. In their previous band setting, Birsen Uçar and PJ Seaux longed for something more human and organic: “We became slaves of our own computers. We encountered restrictions while performing, as communication with laptops is limited.The physical and creative presence of Patricia Vanneste (Balthazar), Joris Caluwaerts (STUFF.) and Steven Van Gelder (Tout Va Bien), Hydrogen Sea transformed almost instantly. We could start a dialogue with everyone, which means a world of difference. It feels like we’re free at last,”
Hydrogen Sea’s second full album will be released in April 2019, and will be presented on the 25th of April 2019 in the Ancienne Belgique.
