Seahawks Escape Hatch Limited Vinyl LP

Seahawks return with their deepest album to date. A masterful blend of Berlin-School electronics and post ECM New Age fusion. Finis Africae meets Harold Budd downtown.

Escape Hatch is the fourth studio album by Seahawks, recorded over the last 18 months and drawing inspiration from Innovative Communications Berlin School electronics, ECM and Windham Hill releases by the likes of Mark Isham, Jan Garbarek and Interior and the New Age synth sounds of Iasos, Deuter and William Aura.

The album opens with sheets of soft white noise, which give way to Budd like treated piano and fretless bass before super saturated saxophone tones and rippling sequences cascade over the listener like a summer downpour.

Seahawks trademark tropical vibes continue throughout the album but thereís a constantly changing panorama of moods and tones, from the deeply emotive Missed with its widescreen synth and sax interplay that recall Vangelisí Blade Runner soundtrack to the epic scope of White Horses with itís almost Popul Vuh like mantric outro and Starways itís distorted flugel horn like a ghost from Talk Talkís Spirit Of Eden.

At the very end of the (CD) album thereís another twist. A cover of the obscure Balearic hit Valparaiso by Paula Moore, with a Nassau groove, surprise guest vocal and a twinkle in its eye, it provides a suitably eclectic yet ethereal ending.

Once again Seahawks have created a world to get lost in, an Escape Hatch - if you need it, come get it, here it is.
