Clint Slate & Iona James: The Silent Sea

Clint Slate and Iona James became a duo in February after they met a songwriting contest. Their debut EP The Silent Sea, the first of a trilogy, is a throwback to the radio friendly side of seventies rock - Fleetwood Mac comes to mind - and eighties dream pop.

Their vocals take center stage, but it is not all about laying down luscious melodies. Musically they take changes, inserting folkish and ambient tidbits. Stand-out track The Ticking Tide is a 101 for call-and-reponse, wrapped in an intricate arrangment of keyboards and electronics.

The Silent Sea is a self-released EP. Buy it from their website. The second EP, The Doubter’s Dance, will be released on October 1st.
