Bio


The Sunken Sea are a brooding art rock band from Melbourne. 


Featuring members of Melbourne stalwarts Hannah Kate, Hoi Palloi, Tram Cops and Paper Tapir, the large collective of trained musicians creates music with sincerity and soul that makes your heart swell.

Led by the turbulent lyrics and powerful baritone vocals of songwriter and bassist Dougal James, they forge syrupy harmonies and intricate rhythms that evolve and undulate in powerful and unexpected ways.

A modernist take on the morose 80s piano ballad and it's compelling in its feeling and energy. When you talk about missing the last train home and then the percussion embodies that surging train track sound? So clever.

you can hear the pain and vulnerability fueling this heartbreaker, it's almost a physical thing coming out of the headphones.

Gorgeous one from this outfit. That piano just walks off the page of the Zevon playbook but there's this moody electronic flutter that augments the whole mix. Such good stuff.
