Light By The Sea – a musical journey which wasn’t planned, but meant to be. Born during the quarantine times, this project is the lovechild of Eszter Anna Baumann and Davy Knobel, whose music consists of rock, avant garde and folk music elements with a catchy pop vibe. They recorded their first album with their producer Eddy Bopp this winter, set to be released October 22, 2021.
Getting inspirations from their musical role models — Dead Can Dance, U2, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Phil Collins, Clannad, Fleetwood Mac and The Dandy Warhols —, they map a unique sound of self-discovery and self-realization in their artistic realm, in which a lot of listeners will feel comfortable with as Light By The Sea’s aim is to bring back the ‘forgotten sound’ with their music.
This is something completely different and something they are meant to be: Light By The Sea is the vision of a big production and they are ready to take over the continent’s coolest club and festival stages. Anna and Davy have already announced some of their upcoming shows, so make sure to follow them on their socials.
