Old Sea Brigade & Luke Sital-Singh share new song ‘Los Feliz’ from their upcoming EP collaboration, All The Ways You Sing In The Dark, out August 28th via Nettwerk. Despite being friends for just three years and this being their first collaboration, Nashville-based Old Sea Brigade (aka Ben Cramer) and LA-based Londoner Luke Sital-Singh share a chemistry that most groups chase for a lifetime.
Luke and Ben first met at a show together at Rockwood Music Hall in New York City in 2017. Old Sea Brigade then supported Luke for ten dates and as Luke prepared to hit the road with Angus & Julia Stone a few months later, he needed a tour manager. Ben found himself with some free time and obliged. Throughout this trip, the pair developed a strong friendship and over the ensuing two years, they casually emailed song ideas back and forth before Ben flew to LA for that fateful week last summer.
“The whole thing was very refreshing,” says Ben. “Growing up, I came from playing in bands and collaborating with people. This is the closest thing I’ve done to a band in a while. It was a breath of fresh air.”
“We wrote all of this before the pandemic,” Luke admits. “We didn’t have a plan. We simply made something for ourselves that we’re really happy with. When everything happened, we were given an opportunity we might not have had otherwise. It opens up a new world of possibilities for the future.”
