Cristobal and the Sea serve up some beachside mystery on "Fish Eye"

It’s the dog days of summer, y’all. Many of us have been pummeled – relentlessly it seems – with unseasonable heat, in need of respite.

Always down for a dip in the ocean it seems, London based, pan-European born quartet Cristobal and the Sea hit us with another smack of Balearic shimmy with “Fish Eye”, the second single from their upcoming debut LP.

Featuring again what is quickly becoming their calling card, communal vocals driven by Latin guitar beats and spiked with hints of flute, “Fish Eye” continues the beachside frolic strummed up on the debut single, “Sunset of Our Troubles”.

However, as with all their work back to last year’s Peach Bells EP, “Fish Eye” reeks of sultry mystery as well. Hearkening to the song’s funhouse-distorted namesake, guitarist João Seixas divulges that “when I tell my friends what happens, I exaggerate a bit” at the same time admitting the girl he’s hanging with “can’t seem to figure out what I know”.

Cristobal and the Sea’s full-length debit Sugar Now releases courtesy of City Slang on 2 October, when the band hosts an album release show at Birthdays in London. Before then, catch them 11 September at Green Man Courtyard Festival at King's Cross in London.
