Artist of the Day: Some By Sea
The band began as a small group of five friends that wanted to get together and play music just to have fun. The band released a couple of records on their own to high praise in the Pacific Northwest. However, it was really the release of their most recent full-length effort, On Fire! Igloo that garnered them a lot of national attention. After the release, the band began doing much bigger shows, which is possibly what garnered the stress felt between bandmates. Unfortunately, about a year after the release of On Fire! Igloo, Some By Sea decided that by being a band, their friendships had been compromised, so they decided to go their separate ways. Somehow, though, this makes the music they've made together even more special. Whenever I pick up On Fire! Igloo, it makes me think of everyone I know and love, and that's really all due to the band behind it, and what they were aiming for: songs written by friends in order to show love for each other and the music they were writing.
