Impressive debut single from a brand new five piece guitar pop band from Nottingham, England. Fresh off an appearance at this summer’s Indietracks Festival, Seabirds have delivered the perfect debut featuring superb melodies, multiple guitars, soaring male vocals, and great female harmonies.
Lead track ‘Real Tears’ is a catchy and absolutely irresistible song set in the North West of England. A story about the first time you see somebody cry, the song starts with a carefully strummed guitar and male vocals but layers in rhythm guitars, female backing vocals, and dynamic percussion before reaching its dramatic conclusion. Flipside ‘Oh Buoy!’ turns up the guitars for a song about the excitement of a new relationship, and showcases some ace 60s jangle, more female harmonies, and a pretty excellent guitar solo.
The single recalls contemporary Scottish legends Belle and Sebastian if they grew up in a tougher part of town or the American band Voxtrot sifted through an English pop filter. A very promising start for a young band and an excellent addition to the Matinée discography!
Pressed on transparent blue vinyl in a limited edition of 500 hand-numbered copies.
