Premiere | Variant Sea return with the foreboding ‘Wildwoods’

The Last Mixed Tape is proud to premiere ‘Wildwoods’, the brand new track from ambient post-rock duo Variant Sea.

Variant Sea (Shell Dooley & Luke Duffy) made quite the impression with their ambitious debut E.P. Season of Mists last year. Now, the duo delve into deeper darker sonic territory with their latest offering ‘Wildwoods’.

Held on a tense wire of far-reaching textures, ‘Wildwoods’ is a patient track. Duffy’s piano is a guiding beacon of melody while Dooley’s wall-of-guitar is the wide-open world of sound around it.

Merging together Variant Sea create a depth of field and sense of place that makes the band’s music so evocative and as the music builds so too does the scale of it all, revealing an emotionally driven finale that will stay with you.

A most welcome return from a group whose cinematic musical milieu is simply a wonder to behold and listen to, Variant Sea’s ‘Wildwoods’ is a powerful glimpse into their sophomore E.P. Fable.
