Sea Breezes

Album: Roxy Music (1972)
  • Roxy Music's self-titled debut album was an innovative mix of diverse strands, which included '50s rock and space-age electronics. Frontman Bryan Ferry recalled to The Guardian in a January 2018 interview:

    "Thinking about the songs, some of them are collage-like, with different sounds and moods within them – they will change abruptly into something else. For instance, 'Sea Breezes' is a slow song, and suddenly moves into this angular, quite opposite mood. I found that interesting, and this band was perfect for that; they were game for anything. We were constantly fiddling around, changing things. I was still trying to find my voice. I [now] think sometimes I'm singing too high, or I should have had another go at that."
