The Waves, The Sea was the follow-up to the self-titled Sycamore Drive EP in 2009. It was originally released just a month afterwards. In 2011, the album was reworked with new tracks, and new artwork courtesy of Heikki Sillanpää.It's a completely different record, comprising of five chilled out Game Boy tracks. It contains very little percussion, and is a focused, melodic release. Tracks 1 and 5 feature two synchronised Game Boys.
