Ears Wide Open: Sullen Ray



Sullen Ray is not very downcast at all. In fact, it’s not even Ray. No, Sullen Ray is the musical vehicle for singer-songwriter-guitarist Seth Eubanks, now joined by singer-songwriter Dee Clement after previously working with a rotating cast of collaborators. Their new single “Without Out” offers a cinematic slice of atmospheric guitar pop – imagine, here, a movie protagonist driving a coastal highway deep in thought. The song is from the new full-length “Blue Minor,” the first of three albums named for primary colors the duo plan to release. If this is their artistic blue period, the rest of the spectrum holds a lot of promise.
