Haunted Sea Forever / Virgins Clique 7" and CD single by Llarks positions itself in an alternate universe to be single of the week. Shimmering and swirling orchestral layers of guitar churn out irresistible melodies that echo through your head and reverberate out into infinity. Adorned in a defiantly economical black and white sleeve featuring the Llarks mascot posed atop a detail of Jackson Pollock's painting, "Number 8" (1949). The vinyl has been lovingly pressed by King Records, New Zealand and features a free digital download with two bonus tracks.

about Llarks:
Christopher Llarks (aka c. jeely) was born April 1976 in Birmingham, AL., and spent his teenage years playing guitar and singing in a handful of local bands. It was in these local bands that Chris began exploring his love of melodies and ambient textures, and discovered inspiration from the fiercely independent spirit of early American Hardcore. Initially his sound was crafted and honed using multiple analog delay pedals, amp volume and 4-track cassette recording techniques. Later on Chris utilized digital sound processing to create an even more abstract sound. It has been the marriage of these two seemingly unrelated sound worlds that has given birth to Chris' underlying philosophy to "always seek the merger of opposing ends of the spectrum, like the yin and yang, or the push and pull of noise and melody." And finally, Chris created Llarks after a time spent writing, and rediscovering his approach to recording and releasing music. This is truly the sound of a man following his heart through sheer perseverance and twenty years of independent artistry.
