Underwater Where by Seahawks
Many thanks to Seahawks for this exclusive mix for AOR Disco.
Seahawks are the artist Pete Fowler (well-known for his work with Super Furry Animals and for his creations on Monsterism Island) and John Tye (who runs Lo Recordings). They've been "on the waves since 2009, sailing on solar winds, cooking up their catches and beachcombing for discarded, unwanted and buried treasures. Sometimes too covered in thick tar for most to notice."
We first came across Seahawks in October 2010, when they released the outstanding 12" Is This It? /Oh Baby, which took two smooth late 1970s FM radio standards and turned them into eerie, hypnotic epics. This was psychedelic yacht rock at its finest. All the limited edition Seahawks releases, illustrated by Fowler and often on picture disc, tend to sell out fast despite low-key promotion.
Seahawks have recently released an excellent new album called Invisible Sunrise and you can hear them DJ at the Big Chill Bar in London on Wednesday, 14th December.
