FRESH: ‘Fall’ – Seafret

Seafret return with “Fall”!

by Christopher Smith

Bridlington’s finest, Seafret, release their brand new single “Fall” today, through The Orchard. The East Yorkshire band, made up of Jack Sedman and Harry Draper make a rousing return with this powerful track, produced by Ross Hamilton at Rocket Science Recording Studios, Glasgow. Speaking about the new single, the band comments, “Sometimes it feels like all the doors are closing around you and you can start losing heart in what you’re doing or where you are in your life. “Fall” was written about overcoming that feeling and never giving up”.

Following a long run of UK and European tour dates earlier this year Seafret rounded off the summer supporting Lewis Capaldi at Scarborough Open Air Theatre. More live announcements coming soon. The single is accompanied by another incredible video by director Stuart Alexander, who also directed the videos for their previous singles “Monsters” and “Loving You“. “After working with director Stuart Alexander on the previous to videos it only felt right to team up with him again for our latest video for “Fall”.

The boys continue: “Creating videos for the music really seems to give life to a track and Stuart always delivers above and beyond what we have in mind. The video itself is based in WW1 where a soldier is on the battlefield, fighting for his life trying to get home. The track was written about not giving up when things aren’t going to plan and we feel this powerful footage is a true example of that. Everyone involved in the making of this video worked their socks off to make this happen and we hope people really enjoy and connect with it in their own way”.

Seafret’s emotive debut album “Tell Me It’s Real”, released in 2016 through Sweet Jane Recordings/Columbia Records spurred some huge singles including “Oceans” which was nominated for a VMA and featured Game of Thrones actor Maisie Williams, “Wildfire” and “Atlantis” to name a few. Seafret returned with their “Monsters EP” last September. The four-track EP – which marked the beginning of their collaboration with Ross Hamilton on production/co-writing, featured lead single and EP title track “Monsters”, as well as “Can’t Look Away”, “Bad Blood” and “Heartless”.

“Fall” follows on from Seafret’s most recent single release “Loving You“, which is accompanied by a very emotive video directed by Stuart Alexander. They’ve clocked up an impressive 300 million streams across Spotify and Apple and 170 million views on YouTube and have toured with the likes of Hozier, James Bay, Kodaline and Jake Bugg not to mention their own extensive headline tours in the UK, Europe, Russia and beyond. “Fall” is taken from Seafret’s long awaited second studio album and follow up to “Tell Me It’s Real”, coming very soon!

Written by Christopher Smith

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
