There’s something going on way out west, and no, we don’t mean the Swedish summer music festival. For whenever we turn our ears in that direction there’s some feverishly good (and varied) music coming out of Bristol, Gloucestershire and Devon. From our favourite musical wallflower Alice Jemima to face-painted party blasters The Other Tribe to the shadowy claustrophobic rock of Seasfire.
It’s Seasfire who we turn our attention to right now with the news of a new five track EP being released through Cheap Thrills ((DJ/producer Herve's record label) on Dec 3. The title track We Will Wake is a powerful piece of modern rock music, where brittle beats, soft piano and weird guitar sounds build to a hooky chorus that you can lose yourself in. “We can dream this nightmare over, we can dream this nightmare away, but it won’t be long till shadows gone and dawn will break.” There’s less of a late night heaviness to We Will Wake than their previous material, from the music right down to the title of the song. Let’s hope the rest of Britain (and the rest of the world) sees the light and wakes up to this band soon.
