Feature: “If I…” with Sick/Sea

McAllen, TX indie rock duo Sick/Sea have been compared Eisley, Copeland, Dear and the Headlights and recently joined Autumn + Colour Records. The sibling duo made up of Audrey and Cameron Scott are set to record a new album and with a sound that is influenced by a range of genres; from soothing jazz to plucky indie rock and even hardcore, it should make for interesting listening.

With honest lyrics and mature pop sensibilities, the Scott siblings bring a warming, intriguing approach to the indie rock genre.

Audrey and Cameron Scott caught up with Already Heard and put themselves forward to take part in our “If I…” series. They told us which legendary arena they would like to play, which fellow Texan group they wish they could share a stage with, their impressive fantasy festival lineup and more.
