about

John F. Kennedy once said that "If art is to nourish the roots of our culture, society must set the artist free to follow his vision wherever it takes him." Scottish native Now Wakes the Sea's journey to the verge of releasing brand new album 'Bildungsroman' has been far from an easy one. The need to push boundaries and challenge the listener, not to mention a battle to overcome a battle with various opposing anti-depressants lie at the heart of this stunning piece of work. The challenge for Now Wakes the Sea is simple; to progress as an artist given the limitations of standard instrumentation and to take risks with pushing the boundaries of what is acceptable in the modern world. The need to grow as an artist inspired by the freedom to fail. A beautiful battle to overcome.

From the first bars of Bildungsroman a different Now Wakes the Sea is unleashed from previous outings such as the recently re-issued 'Fluoxetine Morning' and last year's stunning 'Gods Light Withdrawn'. An organic and natural development from solo artist to full band the change in line-up inspires the change in sound and dynamic produced on previous records. Inspired by grunge, garage rock and early electronica, Bildungsroman shouts from the rooftops rather than from the side of the lakes, it's more inner city than countryside retreat. Whilst clearly grounded in the artists' psyche, this is a progressive, inspiring and exciting contemporary piece of art. Complimented perfectly by the wonderful cover art by Kazland for 'Bildungsroman' is as ground breaking a record as you are likely to hear this year. If art is the most intense mode of individualism the world has known with this new record Now Wakes the Sea sets himself apart from all his contemporaries in a breath taking manner.

For fans of The Antlers, Casiotone for the Painfully Alone and Deerhunter.
