Rock Sound live review "The Sea have carefully crafted a song that may rival the sleazefest that was the Teenagers 'Homecoming' by causing baby booms across the indie population......If you're partial to music that loves you then leaves you bawling, curled up naked in the fetal position, then dive straight in"

"THE FLY MAGAZINE - Single Review & Live Reviews"

The Sea Single Review: 'Love Love Love' (Lusty) "a lusty lo-fi head-fucking fairytale romp with White Stripes-Black Keys blues to make a debut that's ACE ACE ACE.

The Fly - The Sea Live Review: London Dublin Castle "There's only two of them on stage, but the drums and guitar do the work of a handful of less talented, more hyped rock'n'roll'stars'. Their songs sound classic yet refreshing, and they're a great band to watch". Mischa Pearlman - The Fly

The worlds of fashion and music have always been entwined, and the brothers have attracted the attention of prestigious designer Zandra Rhodes. Zandra who famously designed for Freddie Mercury, Marc Bolan and Debbie Harry has chosen The Sea to be the first band she has designed for in 25 years. A staple of the fashion industry, her creative, extrovert designs are perfect for the boys’ rock and psychedelic sensibilities.
