San Francisco, CA shoegaze/noise pop/jangle pop band Seablite have unleashed their new single “Melancholy Molly“.

The track features on their upcoming sophomore album ‘Lemon Lights‘, due to be released on September 29 through Mt.St.Mtn Records. Pre-order your copy here.

Inspired by 80s/90s indie and shoegaze, Seablite formed in 2016 when Lauren Matsui (vocals/uitar) and Galine Tumasyan (vocals/bass) bonded over a mutual appreciation of early 90’s Britpop and UK underground music. The pair began writing songs and soon after Jen Mundy (ex-Wax Idols) joined on second guitar and Andy Pastalaniec (Chime School) would eventually join on drums.

The band is among San Francisco’s current indie pop renaissance and have opened for band such as Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Charlatans and Ladytron upon their recent Bay Area visits.

Recorded over the summer of 2022, ‘Lemon Lights’ features 12 dreamy pop tracks showcasing the group’s continued growth and maturity and marks a strong progression from their debut album. After recording basic bed tracks with Robby Joseph, the band finished overdubs in their practice space and Lauren’s apartment. The freedom of home recording allowed them to experiment, resulting in an organic and intuitive manifestation of the band’s emotions and creativity – a sonic inkblot of unfiltered pop appreciation.
