Album Review: D At Sea - Anchors & Diamonds (2014 EP)

D at Sea is a musician with a natural talent. With his clever acoustic covers of various metalcore bands, it’s safe to say that he’s someone that wants to stand out from the crowd with his amazing vocals. When I first came across his cover of a track by Bring Me The Horizon, I immediately fell in love with his voice. With his recent release of his newest EP, Anchors & Diamonds, his take on music strays away from all the acoustic stuff, with a strong focus on having an ambient, experimental take on the pop and RnB genres.
