Move over Sam Beam; check out this new video for “Andaman Sea” by Matt Bauer (with Jolie Holland on back-up vocals). Yeah, I said that right. Channelling a similar more-folk-than-pop sound paired with Downy soft vocals, the song featuring Matt Bauer and Jolie Holland is a perfect end-of-summer folk track.
Their video for “Andaman Sea” primarily features footage of jellyfish paired with split-second clips of nature and life.
“Andaman Sea” begins with a pleasant melody, Bauer and Holland trading off on lead vocals, occasionally dipping into joint harmony. They slowly fade during the second half, making way for a consistent drum beat and orchestral instrumentation.
The song comes from Bauer’s new EP, No Shape Can Hold Me Now, set for release October 23 on Crossbill Records. Check out the video for “Andaman Sea” and listen to the opening track, “Useless Is Your Armor”, off last year’s full-length The Jessamine County Book of the Living, both below.
