Blue Room Showcase: Harmonic Blue Album Release Show Feat. Sunbathers, Atoka Chase & Sealab @ Black Cat
On January 31st, Harmonic Blue hosted an album release show @ Black Cat for their first full length album entitled, “The Afternoonist.” The show also featured talented local performers including Sunbathers, Atoka Chase, and Sealab.
Sunbathers, a pop indie rock band, took the stage right before Harmonic Blue. The band is comprised of Sean Lynott on vocals and synth, Peter Mindnich on guitar and vocals, Tim Boate on guitar, Sean Oliver on bass, and Shohsei Oda on drums.The Sunbathers are charmingly raw, which makes you fall in love with them throughout their performance. While the band’s instrumentation is groovy, poppy, and energetic, Sean’s voice, the lead singer, is actually very soulful and borderline R&Bish. This makes for a beautiful integration of various sounds. As a whole, the band has a knack for promoting camaraderie amongst the crowd by leading them to bond with one another. They also perform as if they are a part of the audience; it felt like we were on stage with them and they were on the floor with us.
