Seafret: The lighthouse for a new generation of indie pop bands

J.N. July 14, 2020

The east Yorkshire lads, made up of Jack Sedman and Harry Draper, returned to the scene with their sophomore album “Most Of Us Are Strangers” earlier this year after four years of silence since debut album “Tell Me It’s Real”, but it has been four intense years of touring, writing, more touring, and more writing. After the unanticapted success of their hit “Oceans”, which was nominated for a VMA, they were hailed as ‘the next Kodaline’, heading a new wave of nostalgic indie-pop making its way into a more mainstream spotlight. Thanks to streaming services changing the way we consume music, they’ve clocked up an impressive 300 million streams across Spotify and Apple and 170 million views on YouTube and already supported acts as Hozier, James Bay, Kodaline and Jake Bugg, not to mention their own extensive headline tours in the UK, Europe, Russia and beyond.

Although the band already enjoyed loads of success, their latest album is a real banger full of atmospheric, haunting, catchy, and altogether brilliant songs, and with songs as “Be My Queen” they’ve taken their music to the next level. Just bring it out on a full European tour and pop by Hamburg, ok?

Music researcher with an unhealthy passion for music and music festivals. Former studio owner, semi-functional drummer and with a fairly good collection of old analogue synthesizers from the 70's. Indie rock, post rock, electronic/industrial and drum & bass (kind of a mix, yeah?) are usual stuff in my playlists but everything that sounds good will fit in.
