Candy Claws

Candy Claws is a guy/girl duo from the hip little Colorado town of Fort Collins. They spent their first two years as a band writing and recording a "musical companion" to Rachel Carson’s book ‘The Sea Around Us’, even using sounds they recorded at actual ocean shores across the globe. The resulting concept album is called In The Dream Of The Sea Life, and is available for public consumption via Indiecater Records.

The album sounds as if it were completely submersed during the recording process, with dreamy hooks and melodies that flow between swirling waves of electronic effects. If Panda Bear had hooked up with a mermaid and recorded Person Pitch out in the middle of the sea, I imagine it would have sounded something like this.

'In The Dream Of The Sea Life' is streaming on the indiecater website.
