The Sea and Cake release the demo of their song: A Mere

After a career spanning nearly two decades, The Sea and Cake have released their tenth studio album, Runner. As a little gift for fans, they have also released a demo version of their track, A Mere. The arrangement feels soft and intimate, full of Sam Prekop’s breathy, angst filled vocals. Being drained of any sounds other than the jazzy guitar accompaniment, I prefer this arrangement to the original as it allows for a unique view into the early stages of songwriting for the band. To top it all off, The Sea and Cake are embarking on a fall tour of America. Bliss.
