Brooklyn-based musician Joseph Sant is described by the Huffington Post as "an intergalactic love child of Jeff Buckley and Beach House". His first EP, Sea White Salt, arrived January 14, 2016, and critics have called this debut effort "dreamlike", "inspired", "hypnotic", an "haunting homage to a fragile coast" that "roils with raw emotion" and "reveals its treasures at once, leaving you awestruck".
Nor'easter, the single from the EP, is streaming now, and pulses with "tense, anxious beauty -- as though just under the surface, something dangerous is about to happen". Nor'easter has garnered Sant comparisons to "the 80s warmth of Wild Nothing", "the road trip nostalgia of The War On Drugs", "Real Estate crossed with Beach Fossils", Feist, and Bryan Ferry, among others.
His live band includes Brooklyn stalwarts Gabriel Galvin (guitar) and Stirling Krusing (lap steel), long-time collaborator Tyler Graham (drums), and bassist Georgia Tan.
