|The Mercy Seat
|I Could Be Happy
Organic, electronic, melodic songs that shimmer with light and dark textures from the UK. Antony Ryan (isan) and Simon Scott (televise/slowdive) blend together a mixture of musical elements that stun and comfort, sounding like the perfect duo with guitars that rip your face off and electronics that comfort and confuse in equal measures. While sharing the same bill at a gig in September 2006 at the Luminaire in London, Antony from Isan and Simon Scott from Televise realised that they had a lot of musical tastes in common. After trading files over the internet they soon discovered their sound and a musical partnership has formed that could be described as the Cure drinking with My Bloody Valentine drinking with the Postal Service drinking with Ulrich Schnauss. "Mercy Seat" (Ultra Vivid Scene) and "I Could Be Happy" (Altered Images) indicate Seavault's influences - "The darkness and brightness in our music, the highs and lows of a love affair with melodic pop", to quote Antony Ryan himself.
