A new “official” At Sea bio will be here soon. In the meantime:
At Sea is Jason Brody, Dario Ciccioni, and Eiko Peck.
Jason and Eiko met several years ago when Jason filled in on guitar in Eiko’s old band, Benzos, on a tour that took them to SXSW, Miami Winter Music Conference, and many strange American points in between. Jason and Eiko bonded when they were accidentally stranded together in Miami for two and a half days by their bandmates.
Dario and Jason were introduced when At Sea’s previous drummer was called away due to other obligations. They tried to connect for several months to no avail. Finally on a cold day in December 2013, they met up for coffee in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and bonded over their love of bands like Birds of Tokyo and oddball prog and glam rock, and knew they should be playing together.
After attending a Nine Inch Nails concert together, Jason and Dario decided to push At Sea’s live show into more visual territory, and the band now incorporates lighting and projected visuals into their shows.
They released their first EP in 2009 via Soap Media, and their first full-length album, A New Machine was released via Sony/RED/Creative Entertainment Network in September 2012 . ANM was a featured iTunes pick the week it came out, and went on to receive lots of kind praise from music press people with excellent taste (see BUZZ page for more).
In June 2014, At Sea licensed its cover of Nirvana’s “Something in the Way” to Sony Playstation for use in the video game trailer for “The Last of Us: Remastered.” The trailer has received over 4 million YouTube views and has led people across the globe to At Sea and their music.
As of spring 2015, At Sea is playing local shows while they work on their follow-up to A New Machine.
At Sea is currently represented by With Lions Productions for sync licensing.
