Hailing from Nashville, TN // Richmond, VA, Those Manic Seas is a dynamic four piece group that combines elements of post rock and shoegaze to create unique, danceable songs — and lists bands such as Interpol, the Killers and Mutemath as influences. Their debut Headache/Heartache 7" helped expand their reach outside of Virginia. The band has since toured the US and Canada extensively.
The band released their full length album, 'TELEGENIC', on April 21, 2017. The recording process led them to work with Darren King (of MUTEMATH) and Joe Pisapia (of Guster, KD Lang).

'TELEGENIC' full length - April 2017
The full length debut from Those Manic Seas. The recording process spanned over 5 years.
'Outlier' digital single - Sept 2015
Outlier was the first song by Those Manic Seas. It was held back from release to ensure that the song was released in the best form possible. It very much showcases the bands energetic highs and dynamic lows all in one song.
'Headache/Heartache' 7" - May 2013
The A-Side: “Headache/Heartache” was written as a song to get the crowd dancing. “We wanted to challenge
ourselves with our sound. We normally have a shoe-gaze, noisy, post-punk sound and we wanted to create
something catchy that can draw people in. Something danceable ... something fun. ...We tried not to over think it.”
The B-Side : “That Manic Song” is dark, frenzied and grungy. It’s packed with highs and lows that mirror the
feeling the band was going through when the song was written.
