It’s been a while since we’ve had some music on the blog. I know that not everyone likes it when I chuck a tune up on here, but given the circumstances, when I’ve had some free time between schooling and cleaning and… well… blogging, I’ve been listening to a bit more than usual.
This one is from the new album from Seafret and seems to fit with the current situation.
Most of us are strangers
Who want someone to save us
We’re looking out for angels
And something we can hold on
Decent listening if you’re looking for something chilled and calming in these unsettling times.
Stay home. Stay safe.
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.
Also, arguably even more decent: the acoustic version.
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 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.
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.
