Sea Within a Sea

Album: Primary Colours (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • This eight minute epic with no chorus was chosen by the band as their first single from Primary Colours - they gave it away as a free download. Bassist/synth player Tom Cowan explained why to Interview Magazine: "It says everything that needs to be said in the new album. And it says it without it having to be packaged into a three minute pop single, and without having to concern ourselves with how it would fare in the charts. We put it out there, and let people draw their own conclusions."
  • This track was produced by Geoff Barrow from the English band Portishead.
