The Sea The Sea

  • The Sea The Sea

    They’ve been dubbed dream pop, and the lush, filmic sound of The Sea the Sea, who’s members include Brookes staff and alumni, will provide an atmospheric feel among the artefacts and art work of the Ashmolean. With their layered, indie sound, they’re following in the footsteps of well known Oxford alt greats including Radiohead and Foals, and well worth checking out on the night.
