Some By Sea is an orchestral indie rock band from Tacoma, Washington. They have received comparisons to many bands, including Death Cab for CutieKnut (2006) " [ M for Monday. M for music. M for MP3s. M for MANY.] ", Eardrums Music, April 10 2006] and The Arcade FireFox, Chris (2008) " [ Ex Band of the Week: Some By Sea] ", Voilà!, August 30 2008] .


Some By Sea originally formed as the solo project of Chris DuBray in 2003 " [ Artists: Some By Sea] ", SideCho Records] . His solo act grew with the induction of Rachel Bowman and Tom Pearson, and allowed the band to expand and develop new material. After meeting at a local show, Daniel Disparte and David Bilbrey joined the outfit and solidified the line-up.

The band released their debut album, "Get Off The Ground If You're Scared", in January, 2004, on their own label, Kringle Recordings. After touring for their debut album, Some By Sea returned to the studio to record new material. Some of this material was released on their "The Saddest Christmas EP", also on Kringle Recordings.

In 2005, Some By Sea signed with SideCho Records. The following spring, the band released their sophomore LP, "", which received many positive reviewsMineo, Mike (2006) " [ REVIEW: SOME BY SEA - ON FIRE! (IGLOO)] ", Obscure Music, February 26 2006] Modern Pea Pod (2006) " [ CD Review: Some By Sea - on fire!

After their tour in support of their latest album, Some By Sea announced they would be disbandingSome By Sea (2008) " [ The End of Some By Sea...] ", Some By Sea, July 24 2006] . Their final show was played on August 11, 2006. Chris DuBray later spoke about the break-up in an interview for his next band, Ghosts & Liars:

"It was more of a series of frustrating circumstances that lead me to decide I couldn't take it much longer. When we returned from our first "On Fire! (Igloo)" tour in April of 2006, we'd all stopped communicating to each other in any way that wasn't passive aggressive... Nothing that occurred from that point on ever felt 100 percent honest and healthy."
