Close Your Eyes and See is their first album of new material in over a decade, the release finds the group near the height of their powers, delivering one of their strongest collections of songs to date, masterfully arranged and performed by a band with over 25 years experience together. Led by chief songwriter Phil Kakulas and producer Dan LuscombeClose Your Eyes and See combines the honeyed vocals of singer Rob Snarski with long, reverby trails of pedal steel, tremolo guitar, violin and keyboards. The result is a meticulously crafted album of dreamlike torch songs, bruised ballads and atmospheric rockers that sounds both classic and contemporary.

 

Lush, beautiful and mysterious, Close Your Eyes and See is a response to the wonderful and woeful world we live in - an appeal to keep your dreams alive, even when it feels as if you’re living in a nightmare. If the outside world poses difficult questions, the answers may just lie within.

Most recently the sea thieves gained a large push in interest after the US HBO series ""Shameless" licensed the track "drag you in" to appear in a very significant episode of the hit show.

This also led to a "Shameless"Spotify playlist which gained the ST the most online plays they've ever had. Keep an eye out for live shows and an ear out for the long awaited third record, due to drop in late 2017.

Georgia Fields + Phia: Sky and Sea National Tour with special guests Naomi Keyte and Cookie Baker

Two of Melbourne’s brightest independent singer-songwriters are joining forces for their most expansive national tour to date.

 Indie-pop chameleon Georgia Fields and live-looping wunderkind Phia present a very special evening of musical dexterity, as they share the stage and each other’s songs – accompanying one another on everything from kalimba to casio, electric guitar to tambourine. Expect luscious harmonies, world-class song-craft, and impromptu audience participation.

 Hitting the road through July and August 2017, the Sky & Sea Tour will see these two unique artists lend their distinctive sound to each other’s material, as they reimagine songs from Fields’ Astral Debris and Phia’s The Ocean of Everything albums, both respectively released in 2016.

 Support comes from Adelaide’s modern-folk doyenne Naomi Keyte, whose songs sway effortlessly between the haunting and intimate. Her recently released debut album Melaleuca was celebrated as “thoughtful and evocative… a striking album” (the AU Review).

 Alt-country troubadour Cookie Baker will open the night, with her signature noir-folk sound and songs that explore heartbreak, longing and redemption. Her latest single The Summer featuring Tim Rogers is “gentle, sublime” (The Music).

 “Georgia Fields dreams in fantastic Technicolor... Irrepressible pop." – four stars, The Age newspaper

 “Bright, catchy-as-hell pop done with absolute surety from Phia." – Double J

Singer-songwriters Hana Brenecki (Hana & Jessie-Lee/ Glass Skies) and Kate Alexander (Local Coward/ Ute Root) meld their distinct voices to form an inimitable sort of beast that at times coos and weaves along delicate lovelorn pop hooks à la the Everley Brothers, and at others soars into hot-blooded guttural soul harmony.  Alexander and Brenecki trade song for song, soldering melodies and words together so finely that the lines blur as to who exactly is singing what.
