Filmmaker, Marcus Ubungen followed us around for a few days late last year, at home, in the studio, and around town as we were putting the finishing touches on our debut collection of songs. (Shout out to Origami Vinyl, Bedrock LA, United Recording, and our very understanding neighbors in Silver Lake.)

The experience was nothing short awesome, and we’re excited that SAMSUNG is sharing it with the world.

Get the first two WESTERN BELLS singles (“HEARTS & STARS” and “TIME TRAVELS”) through our store and everywhere else you buy or stream music worldwide.

White Sea is Morgan Kibby, member of M83 on Saturdays=Youth and Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming. Her debut LP In Cold Blood is out May 20 via Crush Music/Songs. She’s already shared “Prague”; that’s “Future Husbands Past Lives” above. Find her upcoming tour dates below.

Here’s what Kibby said about the album in a press release:

“This record couldn’t have been more self-reflective or personal if I had tried. I took many cues from Prince, Donna Summer and countless films to hopefully impart a deeply moving and almost visual experience for people when they listen.”
