Premiere: Pace share new single ‘The Sea’

Coinciding with a launch party on 1 November, alt pop trio Pace are sharing their new single ‘The Sea.’

Seeing the band back at work with Suede’s Bernard Butler, ‘The Sea’ sees Pace continue their blissful pop sound. Speaking of the track, frontman Jamie said: “The Sea is very personal for me; it’s inspired by Daniel, a 14 year old boy from my hometown who tragically went missing on New Years’ Day, back in 2002 while fishing on a nearby river. This event had a hugely profound effect on everyone who knew him as the incident ripped through our school and the local community.” 

Dedicated to Daniel’s life, and the power of the sea, it addresses family grief but also celebrates time spent together. It’s sad, for sure, but uplifting, too. A more personal approach that acts as an ode to Pace’s song-writing power and proof that they’re just getting stronger.

‘The Sea’ is out on 1 November.
