New Music: Mountains in the Sea – Better Way

  • New Music: Mountains in the Sea - Better Way

Husband-and-wife duo Phil and Angela Lamb are Mountains in the Sea, a band that that bonded musically and romantically as they swopped songs and ideas over a distance of 3,000 miles.

Now married and living in Washington state, their musical and personal journey bears fruit in the shape of their sublime debut, Better Way.

The duo, who also are members of Spokane band The South Hill, keep some of that band’s indie rock sensibility in the texture and rhythms of Better Way but infuse it with subtly pulsating electronica and a real ear for an understated yet effective series of musical hooks.

The vocals merge into one with the gentle arrangement, with Angela Lamb’s clear yet emotionally reassuring tones – reminiscent of Harriet Wheeler or Lauren Mayberry – add to the sense that as long as the song plays on, and possibly beyond, things are going to be OK.

Better Way is out now on Spotify and iTunes. The duo has a series of singles and an EP on the way, and you can find out more about them by checking out their Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts.
