Fall

The latest from Seafret, with a new album on the way in the new year.

This is Fall:

World War One video, popping into the present day from time to time for striking colour and narrative.
Decent.

Also, arguably even more decent: the acoustic version.

New Seafret

Wow. This is rather beautiful, a little depressing and very powerful.

Lots of lovely mountaintop piano from Harry; lots of honest, open vocals from Jack. One of those songs that you can delve as deep into as you wish. A really decent return from the Bridlington boys.

Filmed, at least partially, on a Mavic, we’re left wondering what exactly happens/happened at the end for things to turn out the way they did.

New from Seafret: Monsters

New music from Yorkshire duo Seafret (you may remember them from… oh… loads of different posts on here). This is Monsters.

Genre is listed as “Rock”, and there’s certainly a heavier kind of element to this one, despite the acoustic guitar in the video.

Much as Seafret did an acoustic version of Bring Me The Horizon’s Drown, so this has the propensity to be covered by a full-on metal band.

But for “just” a voice and a guitar, the guys do this so well.

And if you’re hearing voices in your head, you don’t wanna hear, they’re probably not these ones, right?

They played the Shard last night. That must be quite a venue.

One day…

Can’t Look Away

It’s New Music Monday. An occasional series, which I just thought up because alliteration is the future.

Seafret are back (you may remember them from such posts as Wildfire and Atlantis) with a new song, a new EP and a new tour which once again sadly omits the entirety of the African continent.

The music, thankfully, is readily available worldwide. Here’s their latest offering, Can’t Look Away:

(and on Spotify).

My daughter and I remain South Africa’s biggest Seafret fans.

As far as we’re aware, anyway.

Acoustic Wildfire

It was on or about this time last year that the Huge Cape Town Fire Of Twenty Fifteen was finally extinguished. And that seems as tenuous good a reason as any to share this acoustic version of Bridlington duo Seafret’s single Wildfire:

 

For the original, with its psychologically-challenging video, you’ll need to read this post from last year.

Lovely.
