Mountains in the Sea is husband-and-wife indie pop duo Phil and Angela Lamb, based out of Spokane, WA. The pair fuses blues guitar with hooky indie pop melodies and syncopated rhythms to form a sound that is both fresh and a bit nostalgic.

They have followed up with several more singles, with an LP on the horizon for early 2020.
The Spokane, WA duo met in 2011 and bonded over, among other things, shared musical interests. After marrying in 2012 they began performing locally as a duo and as part of five-piece indie rock band The South Hill. In 2018 they formed new project Mountains in the Sea as an outlet for an indie electropop sound they were honing in on together.
Mountains in the Sea has a fresh sound that meaningfully melds together infectious pop lines, blues influences, and a thoughtful indie-electro undertone, creating a tracks that are reminiscent of Lana Del Rey meets The Postal Service, with a dash of The Black Keys' grit.
