Organic, electronic, melodic songs that shimmer with
light and dark textures from the UK. Antony Ryan
(isan) and Simon Scott (ex televise/slowdive) blend
together a mixture of musical elements that stun and
comfort, sounding like the perfect duo with guitars that
rip your face off and electronics that comfort and
confuse in equal measures.
While sharing the same bill at a gig in September 2006
at the Luminaire in London, Antony from Isan and
Simon Scott from Televise realised that they had a lot
of musical tastes in common. After trading files over
the internet they soon discovered their sound and a
musical partnership has formed that could be described
as the Cure drinking with My Bloody Valentine drinking
with the Postal Service drinking with Ulrich Schnauss.
“Mercy Seat” (Ultra Vivid Scene) and “I Could Be
Happy” (Altered Images) indicate Seavault’s influences
- “The darkness and brightness in our music, the highs
and lows of a love affair with melodic pop”, to quote
Antony Ryan himself.
An album may appear in 2010…but for now Antony is in Isan and Simon records solo for Miasmah and has his debut “Navigare” out September 2009.
