Artist Discovery: Sea Oleena

Genre: Ambient, Art Pop, Dream Folk, Shoegaze

Sea Oleena is the recording project of Charlotte Oleena, who has also previously worked on a record with Montréal rap-folk group Holobody. The music of Sea Oleena is dreamy and beautiful. I caught a show at the tiny Arboretum festival in Ottawa. I had previously run into her recordings on bandcamp and enjoyed the experimental folk aesthetic but to my surprise her live show was solo and stripped down and it blew me away. It might have been the heat of the day, but I was put right into a deep enough trance that I didn’t even mind sitting in the direct sun (and for somebody like me, that’s high praise.)
