Sounds | Light By The Sea - Damian


Pure nostalgie. Flashback naar de tijden dat Blondie de hitlijsten terroriseerde en Debbie Harry met haar sexy verschijning en zwoele stem menig tiener in vervoering bracht. Anna en Davy doen die tijden met Damian herleven. Fan van gelijkaardige eighties sounds? Check hun YouTube pagina.

"Wat gebeurt er als je verliefd wordt op de zoon van de duivel? Deze gedachte gaf mij en Davy, alle inspiratie tijdens het schrijven van dit nummer. Onze gemeenschappelijke obsessie voor de mistige oktobernachten en aanbidding van klassieke horrorfilms zoals The Omen, bracht ons op een denkbeeldige en magische reis van waaruit we deze melodieën mee naar huis konden nemen"- legt zangeres Anna uit.


As building a time machine is yet to seem impossible, with the power of sound, Davy Knobel and Eszter Anna Baumann were aiming to do it in their own way. During quarantine, they surrounded themselves with their favorite vinyls and concert tapes in their tiny apartment, which resulted in writing their own tracks, inspired by their great musical heroes. Light By The Sea's full-length album entitled Only Death Makes Icons (2021) was released shortly afterwards. With the help of producer and music-geek Eddy Bopp, they brought back the forgotten sound, as the listeners can hear a really special instrumentation and sound of tape, thanks to Eddy's studio equipment that even George Harrison and Genesis had used before. So far, four songs from the album (Eleanor, Crimson Sugar, Chelsea Is A Mermaid And She’s Soaking In, Mr Wonderman) have been accompanied by music videos, which immediately caught the international media’s attention. Since it is not often that a Dutch guitarist and composer makes music with a Hungarian artist, therefore in their music a really beautiful combination of the West and the East meet, as their sound consists of art rock, avant garde and folk music elements, and their lyrics are inspired by the ascension and fall of great heroes and sorrowful tragedies.
