1/5

      Evocative, otherworldly, and utterly captivating, Across The Sea defy categorisation, inhabiting a place where the boundlessness of the imagination transcends genre limitations and conventions. A breathtaking synthesis of the haunting, siren-like vocals of classically trained soprano Hannah Katy Lewis and the dynamic, unorthodox and experimental guitar style of Pete Ferguson, their mesmerisingly unique sound is wildly eclectic, fiercely inventive and singularly distinctive.

     

      Their critically-acclaimed first album Infinite Worlds was released in December 2018, featuring on HMV Brighton’s recommended list and being lauded by a diverse range of outlets as a startlingly original debut.  Playing over 150 shows since their inception, the pair have earned a reputation as one of the most genuinely innovative acts on the live circuit, enchanting audiences at venues throughout the south and festivals such as Victorious, Wickham and Rhythmtree.

      And now, after 18 months of meticulous crafting, Across The Sea unveil their much-anticipated second album The Wayfarer Triptych, scheduled for release on 1st October. A nine-track concept piece near-cinematic in its scope and ambition, the album sees the duo push every aspect of their signature sound to the extreme in order to create an immense work of astonishing musicality, vivid storytelling, dizzying virtuosity, and staggering emotional resonance.
