Sea of Tranquility is the North Carolina-based Electro-Pop and Rock amalgamating aficionados manufacturing hopefulness through intoxicating singles in these modern times of desolation.
Their inception as a scintillating Rock group happened sometime in early 2018, and since then, they've been pushing the boundaries of their genre's respective vestiges with relentless enthusiasm and charm.
On this year's musical escapades, Worth Fitts, Josh Frost, and Brandon Porterfield collude together over their latest single, "Lost At Sea," to create a nostalgic cut that oozes with character.
With nostalgia-inducing synth pads that twinkle with kaleidoscopic radiance, "Lost At Sea" comes sailing in on a four-to-the-floor rhythm, holding us captivated from the first moments the leading incantations reach our ears. Here, in the center of this panoramic display of marching snares, heavy inclined saturated bass guitars, and echoes that decay into the void, these Nor-Cal mystifiers establish a vibe that's hard to shake off.
As we're chaperoned through a plethora of wailing harmonics and a multitude of synth orchestration, we're instantly absorbed into this Electro-pop banger's expansiveness, enthusiasm, and spirit as it shuttles between double-tempo upswells, tangy verses, and scintillating Pop-punk reminiscent choruses. It's the type of song we can imagine blasting from our living room speakers as we synergize our air drum over the manic hot-blooded rumblings featured in "Lost At Sea."
When we think back, "Lost At Sea" stands as another stanchion in the foundations of this band's Electro-Pop and Alternative-Rock amalgamating influences, and we simply can't stop reaching for the repeat button.
Listen to "Lost At Sea" here.
Can you run us through the inception of this single? Where did it all begin?
Sea of Tranquility has always gotten a lot of inspiration from ocean themes. At face value, the song is about a ship lost at sea, but under the surface, the song represents dark times that we all go through and that there is always hope for a way out. “It’s times like these that define me”; the way that we face tough times is what builds our character.
What sorts of emotions did you find yourselves channelling into for the performances you captured on "Lost At Sea?"
“Lost At Sea” taps into a feeling of isolation and feeling lost.
When you think back, do you feel like North-Carolina has a lot to do with developing the Aesthetic and Sounds you render up as a band?
North Carolina music has a wide range of genres and ideas. As musicians, we’ve played in many bands of differing genres, but in Sea of Tranquility, we vibe out and write whatever we like, which results in combining different genres together in a new way.
What are some of the most crucial milestones you've been aiming for this year? And what steps have you taken already to achieve those goals?
This year we’ve been releasing a song every 2 months. We’re working towards a full album, but we also want to release a constant flow of music in the meantime to stay connected with our listeners.
What has been keeping you inspired in 2020?
In 2020 the best distraction that we have is music. Focusing on writing new songs is what has kept us motivated throughout the year despite all the negativity currently in the world.
