About


Sea Stacks is the creation of Davy Berryman; combining orchestral instrumentations to create wind and string-strafed indie music that produces spine-tingling moments of beauty interwoven with a distinctly dark, sinister tone of lyrics.

Starting with just a handful of songs and a studio, Davy set out with only one rule, mostly unbroken: that there would be no guitars or pianos used.

In April 2013 Sea Stacks released their first single ‘The High Tide'. The follow up to this ‘Numb’ came in Sept 2013. The new single, 'Glassy-Eyed', is due 7th April 2014.

Live, Sea Stacks perform as an eight-piece, featuring string-quartet, double bass, flute, drums and a harmonium.

"Music of
startling vigour
and freshness"

A seemingly quiet month has passed since my last post, but it’s been full steam ahead for us!

The next single is ready, the video is nearly there and looking fantastic (see photos above). Not long now!

In the mean time, Jay and I got into the studio last week and recorded a new song. It’s a scaled-back track, just cello, harmonium and voice. We really like it and will be putting it up for free download next week.

Gig news:

We won’t be gigging too often this year as time constraints for us all mean getting together regularly is hard, but we’re delighted to say we’ll be playing at the Old Queen’s Head, Angel on March 5th. 



Sneaky peak at new songs

Tomorrow we’ll be sending out a demo of some of the new songs we’ve been working on.

I’ve known about Uzi & Ari for a long time, and have had their second album It’s Freezing Out for a few years now and love it. I’d even go as far as saying that album has some influence on the Sea Stacks songs and sound.

For some reason though I’ve never listened to the rest of their music. So today I decided to sort that out. Go have a listen to it, I’m currently listening through Headworms and loving it so far. 



New songs/new music

I’ve been busy working on a load of new songs and getting lot’s done, but also keep finding new music I love. Looking forward to the full album from Asgeir next year.
