Seasfire first came to our attention last month through BBC Introducing Bristol and have suddenly received a torrent of online press hailing them as a big tip for the coming year. Now it just seems like we’re jumping on the badwagon, but we do so unashamedly and it should stand testament to just how good we think they are. Now the tricky bit – pigeonholing their sound. Built on a haunting soundscape of (James) Blakean minimal beats, their songs are also lent a pop sensibility by Thorn’s gentle vocals and Labanowski’s piano-playing. It means they occupy a space between The Weeknd’s emotive ballads and Radiohead’s piano experimentation, brought up on a healthy diet of Bristolian chill. With their debut single Falling released on 27 February (video below), we expect to be hearing a lot more from these four. Seasfire are set to support Nathaniel Rateliff tonight at a sold out Communion evening at the Notting Hill Art Club, with Annie Eve also featuring . They’ll also be supporting Spector at The Louisiana, Bristol on 24 February – a must see in our opinion.
