Sea Moya Share ‘Nothing Is Real’

Sea Moya are a German three-piece of wide ranging and unexpected influences that are not an easy prospect to deconstruct: the psyche of Tame Impala and the easy electronica of Toro Y Moi feature, but so does the hazy production style associated with J Dilla and Flying Lotus.

After their debut song Do Things received widespread attention for its Afro-psyche stylings, the band return with Nothing is Real: a track composed for the apex of summer.

Slow Down is a perfect example of the band’s ability to refine often contradictory sounds into a seamless genre – it quite literally adheres to the track’s title and slows down time, demonstrating a more restrained side to their sound while still offering a cornucopia of hooks

Elias, David and Iven, who make up the trio, explain in their own words about lead single Nothing Is Real: “We created a small recording studio in a beat-up VW Camper van and travelled around Europe, writing along the way. We visited Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia and gained a lot of inspiration from the beautiful landscapes. Nothing Is Real incorporates our love for lo-fi sounds and worldly percussive beats. It has a charismatic bass line, a solid afrobeat-esque drum groove and synths that dance and float around.

The vocal samples and vocals are pretty simple, which worked great for us in that context. Lyrically, it’s a symbiosis of two topics: one is making decisions, especially those related to being a musician. The other one is about social and political issues and how people of our generation choose to deal with them.
