The indie/punk band Seahaven from Torrance, California began making music in 2009. The four-piece band came together when drummer James Phillips left his hardcore band Final Fight in search of a softer but still tough sound. He joined Eric Findlay, MIchael Craver and lead singer and guitarist Kyle "Kai" Chadwick to create indie inspired punk. Seahaven's 2010 debut EP Ghost is packed with pessimistic lyrics and instrumentation that jumps from pensive to playful to dark and downtrodden. The band followed its EP with an extended tour of the US west coast and continued to tour in 2011, this time bringing its thoughtful punk to the east coast.
