The Silver Seas: “The Best Things in Life” (2010)

As the additional links below attest, we think pretty highly of songwriter Daniel Tashian and Silver Seas.

The guy has a knack for what Guardian writer Michael Hann describes as “melody-heavy songs, suffused with delicious melancholy”.

Yep, nailed it.

I’d only add that the arrangements and styles cover a broad spectrum, from the country-tinged to the early rock ‘n roll-influenced to the jazz-inflected and, on “The Best Things in Life”, something approximating power pop.

If any of that sounds appealing, do yourself a service and explore the band further via the links that follow.
