The east Yorkshire band made up of Jack Sedman and Harry Draper made a rousing return with this powerful track, produced by Ross Hamilton at Rocket Science Recording Studios, Glasgow.
Speaking about the new single, the band comments,
“Sometimes it feels like all the doors are closing around you and you can start losing heart in what you’re doing or where you are in your life. ‘Fall’ was written about overcoming that feeling and never giving up.”
The single is accompanied by another incredible video by director Stuart Alexander, who also directed the videos for their previous singles ‘Monsters’ and ‘Loving You’. Watch ‘Fall’
“After working with director Stuart Alexander on the previous to videos it only felt right to team up with him again for our latest video for ‘Fall’. Creating videos for the music really seems to give life to a track and Stuart always delivers above and beyond what we have in mind. The video itself is based in WW1 where a soldier is on the battlefield, fighting for his life trying to get home. The track was written about not giving up when things aren’t going to plan and we feel this powerful footage is a true example of that. Everyone involved in the making of this video worked their socks off to make this happen and we hope people really enjoy and connect with it in their own way.”
Seafret’s emotive debut album ‘Tell Me It’s Real’, released in 2016 through Sweet Jane Recordings / Columbia Records spurred some huge singles including ‘Oceans‘ which was nominated for a VMA and featured Game of Thrones actor Maisie Williams, ‘Wildfire’ and ‘Atlantis’ to name a few.
They returned with their ‘Monsters EP’ last September. The four-track EP – which marked the beginning of their collaboration with Ross Hamilton on production/co-writing – featured lead single and EP title track ‘Monsters’, as well as ‘Can’t Look Away’, ‘Bad Blood’ and ‘Heartless’. ‘Fall’ follows on from Seafret’s most recent single release ‘Loving You’ which is accompanied by a very emotive video, directed by Stuart Alexander.
They’ve clocked up an impressive 300 million streams across Spotify and Apple and 170 million views on YouTube and have toured with the likes of Hozier, James Bay, Kodaline and Jake Bugg not to mention their own extensive headline tours in the UK, Europe, Russia and beyond.
