Seoul is excited to announce the release of their debut album, I Become A Shade, out June 9th on Last Gang Records in Canada. New single, The Line, saw its premiere via Noisey, who wrote, “it’s a woozy-wonderful melange of pulsing synths and nimble guitars with Nigel Ward’s vocals swaddling the listener like a cloud. Imagine Phoenix were really high on some primo pot and went bike riding with Washed Out and you’re somewhere close.”

Stream the song on SoundCloud, watch a gorgeous visual trailer, and pre-order I Become A Shade on iTunes and via Last Gang Records for physical release. The Montreal-based trio has separated the album into three distinct suites, equal parts gauzy dream-pop, reverberant R&B, and speculative ambient, making for an impressive and intoxicating debut.

Fans can see them on tour this Spring at SXSW and on a co-headlining run of dates with Ballet School, and New Yorkers can catch them this Thursday night at Baby’s All Right to celebrate this week’s digital release of The Line, which will be released on 7″ vinyl April 21st, backed with the previously-released Stay With Us.
