Seafarer To Play The Whistler To Celebrate Re-Release Of Hiding Places January 23rd

Chicago’s psych-folk rock quartet, Seafarer will celebrate the re-release of their EP, Hiding Places at The Whistler on January 23rd, launching the already well-received record to a larger audience. Seafarer will also be giving away digital downloads off an upcoming 7” to those who attend the show. A Light Sleeper will open for them.

Seafarer’s EP, Hiding Places, released in May, is being re-released to spread the kaleidoscope of sounds they achieve – rock, folk, psych, pop – to a wider audience. It was recorded Engine Studios in Chicago, with recording engineer Jake Westermann who helped create a cohesive aesthetic for Hiding Places. Patrick Grzelewski (vocals/guitar) says of working with Westermann, “He pushed us without overstepping his bounds, knowing that we were capable of much more.” The EP is full of unique gems, like the mercurial and heady “The Archipelago” and even its ensuing partner, “Functional,” with its psychedelic stomp and open-ended structure, are very simply, vivid proof of a band putting all of their merits to work.
