With the release of their debut single “Droplet,” last year, the Newcastle-upon-Tyne, UK-based trio Tessera Skies were breathlessly praised by the likes of Q Magazine and The Guardian as one of Northeast England’s bands to look out for in 2015. Previously releases singles such as “Soliloquy of an Astronaut” was Simon Raymonde’s (of Bella Union Records fame) Track of the Year in Times’ Culture Magazine; “Milieu” which was produced by Pink Floyd’s Nick Mason appears as part of the Roundhouse 30/30 compilation; and a number of their other singles have been praised by a number of major publications across the UK. 

With each of the members sharing collective backgrounds in speech, science, classical music and jazz, the British trio has crafted a sound that’s ethereal and ambient, and manages to effortlessly bridge shoegaze and Coldplay-era Brit pop in a way that feels familiar yet enveloping (and subtly anthemic) as you’ll hear on their latest single “Out of Sight,” a single that’s comprised of shimmering reverb-y guitar, airy synths, gently cooed vocals and a summery yet wistful air.
