Although The Eastern Sea has worked hard all year touring in support sophomore album Plague, the Austin-based band certainly isn’t winding down for the holiday season.
First Christmas, the band’s third album, is set for release on Nov. 27 and will feature two original Christmas tunes as well as new renditions of old classics. Amidst a swarm of peppy Christmas releases this winter, First Christmas serves as a more relaxing soundtrack to the annual holiday bustle.
You can listen to First Christmas, which was produced by Louie Lino (Nada Surf, Matt Pond PA) in the player below.
The Eastern Sea is Matt Hines (Vocals/Guitar), Tomas Olano (Vocals/Bass), Jess Graves (Organ/Piano/Vocals), and Zach Duran (percussion). From Austin, TX, The Eastern Sea has “an Iron and Wine kind of feel but with a unique twist that made them a step above other indie artists working to be heard in the folk rock type of genre. It’s not necessarily something you’ve heard all over town, and appealing in its individuality” (Austinsound.net).
