Artist: THE SEA AT MIDNIGHT
Who: The musical dark wave project
of LA-resident Vince Grant.
Score: Vince Grant is no stranger to Turn Up The Volume. His dedication to darkwave is infectious as he shows again here with his new shadowy single. Sonically you still hear
Joy Division and The Cure echoes.
Too Close To The Sun is an addictive melody at heart locked in tenebrous eurhythmics. Think of lots of The Cure hits (Close To You / Friday I’m In Love / Lovecats and so many more). They were experts in writing uncomplicated pop tunes and made them sound instantly captivating. Grant also unites aural catchiness with shady musicality including a melancholic saxophone solo in this new composition. Top-quality.
