HousePlants' Seaglass EP follows their acclaimed 2021 debut album Dry Goods.
HousePlants have announced the release of a new EP Seaglass, due to be released on December 2nd, with a video for the title track.
With vocalist Paul Noonan performing the track in the visuals (directed by Allyn Quigley), which are kept simple with a warehouse hosting the band, the funky beats and gentle electronic synths bring the gorgeously catchy single to life.
"I wanna age like glass of the sea, and lose my edge so gracefully," Noonan croons on the textured chorus, made rich with harmonies and shimmering beats. "I wanna taste the air as I move."
“Having made the album during lockdown mostly in our respective bunkers, it was a joy to finally play shows and share the thing in its natural habitat," Paul Noonan said of the new EP. "The pants-splitting, tent-shaking, sinew and bone of it… More tunes happened as we went through the summer. Here they are.”
Wrapping a year which has featured the band performing their much-celebrated live show at festivals, the outfit have also announced three special shows for December in Dublin, Galway and Limerick.
General tickets go on sale Friday, November 4th with a pre-sale for mailing list subscribers on November 3rd.
For both artists, HousePlants represents reclamation amidst the creative drought brought on by the global pandemic. “There’s a community of music makers who mainly see each other at gigs and nights like the Choice Music Prize that feels somewhat atomised in the void of lockdown,” Noonan said in April 2021. “One of the nicer things about this time is that artists have been checking in on each other. It feels like lots of people are doing what we did.”
