The Sea is coupled with a whimsical and captivating music video, with cinematic and dream-like visuals that perfectly encapsulate the song’s meaning and vibe. Filmed by Brisbane-based photographer, Imogen O’Doyle,​​ edited by Tom Carroll, and directed by Miri Badger, The Sea clip is merely part one of a grandiose visual trilogy that is set to accompany the upcoming album.

Baby Cool is a new project, launched by Nice Biscuit’s co-front woman, Grace Cuell. With her glistening new hit, The Sea, Grace beckons us deeper into her mystical realm. Showcasing a sublime medley of psychedelic pop/folk with flourishes of country, The Sea was written by Cuell during a time of dwindling mental health, and later recorded with Sam Joseph (Family Jordan) in a picturesque studio shack in the northern rivers of NSW.

Speaking of the track, Cuell shares, “The Sea was written after a time when my mental health was so poor that I needed daily reminders of the magic that comes with existing in a human body.” Baby Cool’s debut record, Earthling on the Road to Self Love will be blessing our ears on February 10 of 2023.
