With the release of her debut album ‘Breakage’ this week, Sea Change is excited to unveil a celestial new video for album standout track ‘Squares’.

Sea Change is also set to bring her chilling electronic sounds to the UK with a London show at The Sebright Arms on Friday, Feb 27th.

Director Marie Hjelmerud took inspiration from Bjork’s ‘All is Love’ & ‘Hidden Place’ when she created the visuals for ‘Squares’. Her aim was to add another dimension to the already hypnotising track with the elusive video only adding more mystery to Sea Change’s already haunting sounds.

Watch ‘Squares’ here:

Sea Change is the musical alias of Oslo-based Ellen A.W. Sundes whose previous singles ‘Bursting’, ‘Let’s Dance’ and ‘Bridges’ were released throughout 2014, drawing comparisons to the likes of Fever Ray, iamamiwhoami and Lykke Li and building a snowballing fan base. Her live performances have been a steady source of praise, playing festivals across Scandanavia and the rest of Europe including last year’s The Great Escape.

Layering collected sounds, punctuating beats, scattered vocal harmonies and kinetic choruses that hark back to her late 80s childhood, Sea Change captures an enchanting sense of magic and mystery.

Swooping from sparse moments of calm & fragility into intoxicating bass-fuelled turmoil, Breakage is a dynamic & captivating listen, documenting the sound of an exciting young musician stripping away her guards and finding a sense of freedom in her work.

All of the tracks on ‘Breakage’ were recorded in Ellen’s bedroom in her hometown of Oslo, Norway and mixed by Endre Kirkesola.

It’s a stark & immersive personal journey into the world of Sea Change, striking a captivating balance between power & delicacy, landing distinct sound that hits deep & holds the listener’s attention throughout.
