Next month, Miami’s Seafoam Walls will head out on a run of North American tour dates beginning on April 7 in support of Unknown Mortal Orchestra. Tickets for those dates are available here. It will come on the heels of guitar/singer Jayan Bertrand’s time spent on the road opening for the Thurston Moore Group across Europe, happening now. 

The band released their acclaimed debut album ‘XVI’ in 2021 via The Daydream Library Series, the house record label of Ecstatic Peace Library operated by Eva Prinz & Thurston Moore. Having received support from outlets like PitchforkSPIN (who named them one of 22 Artists To Watch In 2022), AfropunkUnder The RadarBrooklynVeganFLOOD MagazineAudiotree and beyond, the band is ready to bring their savvy blend of jazz, shoegaze, rock, hip-hop, and Afro-Caribbean rhythms back to the road.

The name Seafoam Walls is meant to convey a sort of pseudo-chromotherapy, suggesting a relaxed mood when one is alone with their thoughts in a seafoam green-colored room. But the themes explored on ‘XVI’ are heavy — self-identity, philosophy, navigating today’s crumbling social constructs — and stem from Bertrand’s online interactions and personal experiences, making him question his and others’ humanity. A collection of songs as ethereal journeys; both the compositions and ideas found throughout explore a myriad of paths that almost never repeat themselves — and demand to be heard live.
