Sea Ray - Stars at Noon
Chamber pop don’t stop. With its latest full-length, Stars at Noon, the Brooklyn-based Sea Ray has created a record that shimmers, sparkles and downright revels in its own glorious shoegazing wash of sound. The sextet’s bright orchestral layers create a vast enough sonic palette to turn any rock club into a bona fide performing arts center for a few short hours. From the pulsing keyboard intro of “Sister Gone” to the energetic cello lines of “Hall of Fame,” each of the songs on this record are knit together by the ultra-moody/melodic thread of Jordan Warner’s Brit-pop vocal delivery. Sea Ray. Sea Ray rock. Good Sea Ray.
