They also make their Russian live debut in Spring 2017 with shows in Moscow (23rd March) and St Petersburg (24th March).
‘Blank You Out’ was recorded at the end of the summer in Glasgow with Ross Hamilton, who they worked with on several tracks on their debut album, ‘Blank Me Out’ is stomping impassioned ode to modern life. Speaking about the track Sedman explains, “Sometimes in life you’d give anything to be with the person or people you love the most. ‘Blank You Out’ is about trying to find a way to distract yourself in the times you are separated from them.”
It’s a rare thing when a band’s name perfectly encapsulates their music. Flip open a dictionary at ‘sea fret’ and you’ll find it’s the term for the mist that rolls inshore from the sea. Then pick any one of the Bridlington duo’s tracks and breathe in the delicately plucked acoustics, the gentle haze of rippling electronics, whispering strings and melancholy vocals.
Seafret’s signature affecting sound is none more evident on their break out track’s ‘Give Me Something’, ‘Atlantis’ and ‘Oceans’. The latter that has racked up over 36 million streams online across youtube and Spotify and it’s accompanying video which features Game Of Thrones’ star Maisie Williams had a slew of nominations at this year’s European MVAs.
