Seafieldroad is a solo project by Andrew Eaton-Lewis of Swimmer One, whose first two albums of multi-layered, experimental chamber pop, The Regional Variations (2007) and Dead Orchestras (2010), have established them as one of Scotland's most critically acclaimed bands.
'Eaton-Lewis crafts songs that sound like minimalist classical composers working on adventurous ballads for REM. This album will either win the Mercury prize or disappear into fervent cult obscurity. It’s so good it deserves no compromise in between.’ Sunday Herald.
What people said about Seafieldroad’s debut album, There Are No Maps For This Part Of The City:
‘A lovely album. A late contender for one of the best of the year.’ Gideon Coe, BBC 6 Music
'It's the sort of record that they – the Mark Eitzels and the Paddy McAloons – used to make. An adult pop record with heart and brains.' The Guardian.
‘A compelling end of year treat... perfectly attuned to winter's lonely, dark nights.’ Drowned in Sound.
'The songs glow with a sense of sincere, melancholic wonderment... An album to get lost in.' The List.
'A heartbreaking and delicate album... a great piece of work.' Sunday Mail.
