Tipped by many to become one of the most exciting and unique British guitar bands of the decade off the back of rapturous critical acclaim, Pale | Seas, on the eve of the release of a long-anticipated debut album, simply disappeared. No hiatus announcement, no press release, nothing.
For the following three years the band, led by enigmatic frontman Jacob Scott alongside Graham Poole (Lead Guitar), Matthew Bishop (Bass) & Andrew Richardson (Drums), emitted no signal, instead embarking upon a period of prolonged isolation, rejecting the industry and the outside world to hole themselves away inside a medieval abbey in most remote Isle of Wight.
The decision to do so would go on to define the band’s dark, otherworldly and expansive sound. To capture it and enhance it further the band enlisted the help of producer Chris Potter (The Verve, Urban Hymns) & Paul Butler (Michael Kiwanuka, Devendra Banhart & The Bees), with whom the band had begun their journey 5 years previously.
In an industry that feeds off short-lived hype countless bands have rushed headfirst into releasing an album, only to crash and burn. Jacob Scott, intent on not joining their ranks, is now certain that their debut record; an amalgamation of nearly a decade’s worth of life experiences, will not be left to the sands of time. "I’ve listened to these tracks loud enough and long enough to know that the right things are coming across."
There’s something of the young P J Harvey in the urgent rawness of Scott’s vocals. On album opener Into The Night, the pulsing electric guitar - which builds and relents repeatedly - serves this rawness perfectly. There’s a softness bubbling beneath the surface too; on each track that follows, Scott excavates his soul in a bid to make sense of it.
In an effort to capture the state he was in when the songs were written, 'Stargazing For Beginners' was recorded mostly at night in the ancient abbey – Scott says the feeling an artist has when they first write something “can’t be replaced, unless you get it first take.” There are many first takes on the album and many more hours between them spent waiting for the perfect moment to arrive.
On one song, Blood Return, the version that made it onto the record is the original demo. The song, he says, represents “a feeling of getting better when you’ve been strung out for so long you have forgotten what being well is. It’s like watching the colour slowly come back into your skin.”
