Life Aquatic Band are a seven piece forged in the furnaces of Sheffield, crafting a charming and seductive blend of indie, psych, funk, disco and pop.
Life Aquatic Band are fresh from releasing their debut album LABPD or BAND ON THE HUNT; a concept album built around the premise that Paul McCartney has been on the run since Wings album ‘Band on the Run’ in 1973, and the Life Aquatic Band Police Department are determined to catch their man. Accompanying the new album is new single ‘Underwater Highway’ and a marvellous entry point the playful and slightly oddball world of Life Aquatic Band. It is a woozy and melodic slice of sombre indie-pop propelled by meaty, funky bassline as hushed vocals float amid shimmering psych guitars and cosmic sparkle, provided by the spacey, Casio-esque synths. It is colourful, charming and playful brilliance, and it is but one of many to be found on the new album.
Listen to ‘Underwater Highway’ below and you can give the new album a spin here too.
