Jape is, and has been, one of Ireland’s most talented musicians for sometime now and his much anticipated fifth album, This Chemical Sea, is out today (January 23rd).
‘Séance of Light’ follows ‘The Heart’s Desire’ as the album’s second single. It is more of a grower and less instantly infectious than it’s predeccesor but that said, it is synth-led pop of the highest caliber. It pulsates with a vital electronic beat, shifting through expansive and colourful production that intertwine with some wonderful euphoric undercurrents. It is all topped off to perfection by Egan’s intoxicating blend of soft vocals and exquisite harmonies which sit atop of the haze and swirling synth. A delightfully warm and hazy gem that offers yet another wonderfully compelling and colourful insight into the new record, The Chemical Sea, which is out today (so, many of you will have already heard the LP but I have not).
‘Seance of Light’ is below for your listening pleasure and check out the Dave Tynan directed video too. The Chemical Sea is available now from all the usual haunts.
