a Post punk inspired Chamber pop band with full brass and string section.
a high-energy, horn-powered, afrobeat inspired alternative rock and roll band. Artful arrangements combine with pop sensibilities to create a sound which is undeniably their own.
Think Talking Heads, Budos Band and Sufjan Stevens all rolled into a burrito.
WE haven't been back to Barboza since our performance at capitol hill block party. And what a bill to be headlining. We are privileged to play after local musician Kimo Muraki's band Tiny Messengers. I have seen him play in multiple bands around town he is one of those guys who does everything better then can be expected of a human being. And they are releasing an album!!!!! Opening up for the evening will be Fine Prince a new local band that I know and love. The leaders of the band are also in charge of seattle recording club where friends submit track and have listening parties. They are great people and have a FINE ear for pop music.
Dark grooves, brooding ballads
contrasted by upbeat singsong melodies

'Holy crap! This is really, really good. This is coming out of Seattle, too?!'
Sean DeTore The Mixtape
the StrangerOne song sounded like the most stripped-down Fleet Foxes. The next brought an Americana version of gypsy punk...
Upon launching an online investigation of the Seattle band Sebastian and the Deep Blue, I found three songs so ridiculously disparate they could've been done by three different and very weird bands. One song sounded like the most stripped-down Fleet Foxes. The next brought an Americana version of gypsy punk. The third was... cabaret rap? The distance between the songs seems like a key part of the act. See how it all gels live here.
The Mix TapeI am continually amazed at all of the awesome music coming out of Seattle and Sebastian and the Deep Blue is no exception...
I am continually amazed at all of the awesome music coming out of Seattle and Sebastian and the Deep Blue is no exception.I found out about Sebastian and the Deep Blue several months ago through a friend and my first thought upon hearing their music was, 'Holy crap! This is really, really good. This is coming out of Seattle, too?!'. The band's debut full length, Plastic Parts, is out now and it's an album chock full of an impressive lot of songs that will stick with you long after you listen. The music is fun and upbeat with a bit of swank and sexy times folded in for good measure.
The Monarch ReviewI find myself picturing people in red and white carnival outfits with big black mustaches holding hooked canes...
You know that feeing walking through a fair, that warm feeling with all different sorts of folks around, banjos and acoustic guitars, delicious smells in the air, rides, games? That is the feeling of Sebastian and the Deep Blue’s new album Plastic Parts.
Listening to it, I find myself picturing people in red and white carnival outfits with big black mustaches holding hooked canes. I imagine large, spinning, lit-up wheels with people held to them by centrifugal force. I imagine rings thrown toward empty but heavy milk bottles.
My favorite song on the album is “Grown Tired”, a sweet, guitar-picked tune that has vocalist Barry Sebastian singing, “I’m lost. Got lost in the swirl of the crowd. I’ve lost, lost sight in what – and what it’s about.”
