“Five Minutes With” Calgary Indie Band Sea of Lettuce

Coming from a cold basement in Calgary, Canada, Sea of Lettuce is an alternative group with a
fresh spin on the genre’s typical sound. With the band forming back in late 2016, this group of
longtime friends have since released three full-length albums, with their most recent project
‘COASTAL’ arriving in August of 2019. The band consists of 4 members, with an exciting style
that mixes together elements of indie-pop, surf rock, and vibrant acoustics all into one unique

Over the past two years, Sea of Lettuce has played multiple venues throughout the Calgary
area, with the group’s hometown playing a vital role in their music-making process. Through the
drab winters and clear-skied summers, one can find inspiration from all parts of the city
intertwined in the lyrical themes of the band’s discography.

Garnering over 1,500,000 streams across all platforms, Sea of Lettuce’s releases have been
received positively by their growing audience. With their discography having been listened to by
over 300,000 streaming service users, the band’s music has spread from Calgary to multiple
countries around the world. The group’s second album ‘Photos’ was also pressed to vinyl in March 2019 by the band in affiliation with the company Feedbands.
