Bio: "Freeport plays sea gaze. Guitars shimmer and swirl like sirens. Deep, soulful voices sing ghostly songs that reverberate from the Oklahoma Dustbowl to the dark waters of the Pacific and beyond."
“The term “sea gaze,” which is how local band Freeport describes its genre of music, isn’t just some clever name the members devised—it really is the best description for its sound. The band is, on one hand, heavily influenced by early ’90s-era music: moody, atmospheric shoegaze by the likes of My Bloody Valentine, Lush, and the Jesus and Mary Chain. On the other hand, it is also quite influenced by sea shanties. It isn’t just that the group’s songs sound like slow, surreal pirate sing-alongs—although they do—it’s that the sea is an integral part of the band as a whole: It serves as a place of inspiration on all levels, and lyrically, the ocean is a recurring theme. To that end, Freeport, which performs on Friday, November 15, at Harlow’s Restaurant & Nightclub, has even planned a songwriting retreat to the northern coast. “I think the sea is a good symbol in that it represents the freedom and also the terror of something so vast,” says pianist and vocalist”
