This rousing 4-piece hail from across Europe.  They are Alejandro Romero from Spain (bass/vox), João Seixas from Portugal (guitar/vox), Leïla Séguin from Corsica (flute/vox) and English drummer Josh Oldershaw.  Calling their sound ‘Tropicalia Pop’, Cristobal and the Sea have taken their varied inspirations and diverse cultural backgrounds and melded them into their own distinct sound, creating rich, warm and disorientating songs that swirl with psychedelia, but never forget the importance of melody.  

Expect to hear notes of their southern Mediterranean culture and an unintentionally Brazilian bossa nova feel in João’s guitar style, all underpinned by a beat-generation vibe.  The Metropolist said, “who would’ve thought music could make you warmer in winter?”
