Chris "Hippy" Hughes, Erik Hughes and Peter Krpan have played together for more than a decade as Canadian post-hardcore mainstays Moneen; now, they've enlisted guitarists Mike Bolt and Adrian Mottram to form another unit called Seas. The Toronto-based indie rock project released their debut album through Black Box records in 2013, and recently announced that they're working on a new set of songs. While they fine-tune that material, Seas have continued to perform at various venues around Canada.
We caught up with three members of Seas before their recent set at Toronto's Tequila Bookworm to film a session for Exclaim! TV. The trio delivered a new acoustic song called "A Soft Whisper," which begins with singer Chris carrying the tune alone. Peter and Mike soon lend rhythm and harmony to the track, which becomes more intricate and impassioned along its five-minute duration. Watch the performance progress towards a powerful conclusion in the player below.
