Highest Sea bezaubern mit verhallten Dream-Pop-Songs, wie wir sie von Beach House und Lower Dens liebgewonnen haben. Bei all der Melancholie und Indiepop-Schüchternheit entwickelt Zanzibar mit ihren Songs einen eskapistischen Sog, eine raue Energie, einen schwelgenden Slowcore-Sound, der die Brücke schlägt zwischen Mazzy Star und Angel Olsen.
— Fake Empire Hannover
On the album, Zanzibar’s voice hovers raw and lost in reverie over a carpet of gloriously strummed guitar. It’s Nico-like in its coarseness and vivid spell-casting—and charming.
— Torstraßenfestival Berlin

Dreamy Indie-Rock/Pop

Behind the name Highest Sea is songwriter Leila Zanzibar, whose raw and mystical vocals tell bewitching stories about haunted hearts silently guided by the steady call of the sea. Carried on a wave of melancholic and dreamy noise pop, Highest Sea takes us on a seductive journey. In February 2017 Leila Zanzibar released her debut EP “Haunted Hearts” on Berlin’s label Späti Palace – a mix of melancholic dream noise rock, speed-driven pop melodies, classic indie-pop-sound and poetic lyrics. She's currently performing with Theo Taylor on drums and Tamar Weiss on bass.
