FRESH: ‘Most Of Us Are Strangers’ – Seafret

Seafret release the title track of their new album “Most Of Us Are Strangers”

Favourites Seafret release a brand new single “Most Of Us Are Strangers” today. The emotive track, featuring their trademark folk-pop sound is the title track from the east-Yorkshire duo’s highly anticipated second album, which is set for release on March 13th. “Most Of Us Are Strangers” is accompanied by an eye-catching video directed by their long-term visual collaborator Stuart Alexander (“Fall“, “Monsters” and “Loving You“).

Speaking about the track and video they explain, “’Most Of Us Are Strangers’, is based around hiding emotions or troubles to save inflicting the worry on others. We go about our daily lives interacting with the same friends, colleagues and loved ones, but most of time the appearance that we give is not a true reflection of how we may be feeling on the inside. If we were to share our true feelings, our triumphs, battles and our defeats there’s a big chance people’s opinions of us would completely change, thus making most of us strangers. We tend to hold things back because people are all too quick to judge. To us, although melancholic, the song is hopeful and says, “It’s ok to open up and it’s ok not to be ok.” We hope you all love this as much as we do. Jack and Harry”.

Seafret have already previewed a number of tracks from the new album including most recent release “Love Won’t Let Me Leave“, which has amassed over a million streams since its release before Christmas, having featured on 22 Spotify New Music Friday playlists and picked up airplay support from on BBC Radio 2 (Ryland, Graham Norton); the incredibly powerful single “Fall“, produced by Ross Hamilton at Rocket Science Recording Studios, Glasgow and partnered with an equally enthralling video by Stuart Alexander and the sparse and almost desolate “Loving You“.

Following a summer of live performances including supporting Lewis Capaldi at Scarborough Open Air Theatre Bridlington’s finest Seafret, made up of Jack Sedman and Harry Draper, recently announced an extensive UK and European tour for 2020. The 23-date UK and European headline tour includes a show at London’s O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on March 18th and a homecoming show on June 6 th. The tour will be the first opportunity for fans to see live performances of new material from Seafret’s brand new album “Most Of Us Are Strangers”.

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!
