Regional Beat: Seafair

Seafair expanded to a four-piece when singer-keyboardist Chayla Hope and guitarist Joshua Riehl recruited drummer Ryan Kelly and cellist Tara Hanish, both of whom had played in the terrific local act Unsparing Sea, to join them. The group then became even bigger when it added guitarist Mike Flaherty and violinist Andre Belding to the fold. Together, the six create lush soundscapes that sound pretty fantastic on this EP. With the cello pushed up front in the mix, "Indian Giver" starts off as a beautiful waltz and then escalates into something that sounds more like a vigorous drinking ballad. "Bird on a Wire" is equally exuberant.

Seafair performs with Filmstrip and Texas Plant at 8 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 30, at Mahall's.
