Picture The Ocean.

Canadian trio Picture The Ocean are touring the UK right now promoting their fine self-titled album. Previously a duo called Jesse Dee & Jacquie B they’ve got a new buddy in the shape of Matt Blackie who drums and allows them to capture their studio sound live. While we’ve only heard one song from the new album, the organ driven Erewon the duo have proved themselves to be fine purveyors of dramatic and widescreen American epics such as Straggler from their Our Ghosts Will Fill These Walls album. Sounding at times like a less grungey White Stripes they’re big in their native Canada and this is their first European jaunt.
They’ve played the first gigs of the tour by now but they turn up in Glasgow on Sunday at the Griffin bar and in Edinburgh the following day before heading south. A rare chance to catch a fine band in an intimate setting.
