Sea Cycles Offer a Gorgeous Downtempo Shrug With ‘IDKIDKIDK’

Sea Cycles

This Autumn, Jacksonville indie synth-pop quartet Sea Cycles will be releasing their full-length debut, Ground & Air. The latest track they’ve shared from the upcoming album is the lovely “IDKIDKIDK,” which is as sighing as its title but (luckily) not nearly so uncommitted. Turn-of-the-century Radiohead synth waves wash over Yo La Tengo-like guitar bends and a sublimely rolling drum shuffle, tied together with appropriately melancholy vocals. “This song is about uncomfortable moments when two people can communicate angst without words,” the band explains of “IDK.” “Just looks and body language.  It’s something that everyone experiences that really shows that words aren’t our only connectors.”

Check out Sea Cycles’ new song (and upcoming tour dates) below, and look for the band’s premiere LP June 9, courtesy of Other People Records, currently available for pre-order.
