Super excited to share ‘Love Won’t Let Me Leave’ from our forthcoming album ‘Most of us are strangers’ with you all! We wrote this song before going in the studio to do the main writing and recording for the album but it’s stood the test of time and we’re chuffed it’s made it onto the forthcoming record!

The official lyric video for our new single ‘Love Won’t Let Me Leave’ from our forthcoming album ‘Most Of Us Are Strangers’. We hope you love it!

The response so far to this track has been incredible, it has been added to New Music Friday Playlists on Spotify in 22 countries around the world and had been streamed 10,000 times by the time we woke up this morning. We can’t thank you all enough!

Recently released via Kobalt Recordings, Yorkshire two-piece Seafret make their return after two years away with new single ‘Can’t Look Away’.

The rousing alt-folk-rock track – taken from their new EP ‘Monsters’ to be released in the autumn – was produced and co-written with Ross Hamilton – sees Jack Sedman and Harry Draper on top form, and comes as the first new material since their ‘Tell Me It’s Real’ debut album.

“After touring flat out following the release of our debut album, it feels incredible to release some fresh new music,” they say. “It’s been a while coming so we are doubly fired up to release ‘Can’t Look Away’ as the first glimpse of the EP. In contrast to our debut album that was recorded in London, we’ve recorded all the new music up in Scotland. By once again removing ourselves from our comfort zone we feel it’s had a great effect on the music and kept it exciting for us. We’ll always only put out music that feels honest to us, but by changing our surroundings we feel it’s made us produce music that sounds fresh and new. We hope the fans enjoy it as much as we do.”

Acoustic duo, Jack Sedman and Harry Draper making songs for your ears.  Our new EP ‘Oceans’ is out now:

The North East of England is a place shrouded in tradition, installing a powerful sense of who you are in its residents. Hailing from the small town of Bridlington, Jack Sedman (vocals) and Harry Draper (guitar) chose the name Seafret for their music. As well as being a pun on the guitar fret board, it’s also a local term; it applies to the rolling mists that come in off the North Sea during summer.

Meeting at an open mic night, the two had distinctly different levels of experience. Though a few years younger, Harry Draper was an experienced local musician; Jack Sedman, meanwhile, had quite literally only just discovered his voice.
Despite this, the pair instantly hit it off. “We wrote our own songs straight out of nowhere,” explains Jack Sedman. “I’d never written a song before. I loved music but had never written it. We clicked instantly. That’s how we learned to write: through playing and the chemistry between us.”

The two share a debt of gratitude to their families: Harry’s father is a noted country and bluegrass musician, while Jack’s own father comes from a punk rock background. “I think that’s where it comes from, really” the singer continues. “Harry was massively influenced by his family and I was massively influenced by mine. So when we got together he brought all that to me and I brought all that to him. We shared everything.”

Honest and captivating , Seafret’s material has a beautifully contagious feel. Writing about life as it evolves around them, the two have a rare observational eye – though young, the world is not going to pass them by. Retaining their love of open mics, the duo appears determined to win over fans one step at a time. “You get up and if you win one person over, that’s one more person,” Jack explains. “It’s all part of it.”

Honing their craft by playing along to their parents’ John Martyn and Tom Waits records, Seafret’s youth allows them to bring something fresh, something unheard. There are shades of both Daughter and of Bon Iver’s heartbroken strum on upcoming EP ‘Give Me Something,’ with the title track already receiving support from the likes of Zane Lowe and Huw Stephens at Radio One.

“We never set out to just record one hit,” insists Harry. “That’s why we want something with more weight. People can get a grasp on what the band is about, rather than just one song.”

Ultimately, though, the duo are inspired by what they see around them – and what they miss most about being divorced from the North, in their new home of London. “It’s the sea. I miss the sea,” the guitarist says. “When you live there you take it for granted. I never missed it before. You don’t realise what it does to you when you’re there.”

Now living and working in London, this sense of dislocation only fuels Seafret’s determination to succeed. “It gives you a hard shell,” states the singer. “You feel like you’re no one in someone else’s land – which inspires you to get on and do it.”

Bridlington duo, Seafret, have yet again wowed us with another emotive, heart-wrenching track from their new “Oceans” EP. The title track showcases the versatility of lead vocalist Jack Sedman as he drifts to and from falsetto euphorically.The emotion in the track pours straight in to your ears but it isn’t unexpected. Infact since their “Give Me Something” EP, we’ve held Seafret as something of masters at this art. There are only a handful of artists that express such sentiment and passion and leave you with an an overwhelming feeling of empathy.

Seemingly growing stronger with every track and every EP, Seafret are among the ones to watch for this coming year.

Seafret are an acoustic duo, making songs for your ears.
Our debut EP ‘Give Me Something’ is out Now

There’s something moving, something unmistakably chilling about Seafret. The rising duo – still unfathomably young – are rooted in acoustic fare, songcraft which sounds both deeply traditional and immediately fresh. Hailing from the North East town of Bridlington, the pair took their name from the summer fog which rolls in off the North Sea. Grounded in the North yet currently living in London, Seafret’s music has an odd sense of dis-location, the melancholy which can only come through being surrounded by unfamiliar surroundings. Their new EP ‘Give Me Something’ arrived in September via Sweet Jane Recordings. A neat introduction to their world, members Jack Sedman’s vocals nestling gently in Harry Draper’s light, lilting arrangement. Their simplicity is devastating,
