Seafarers Release Their Beautiful New Single “And Maybe I’m Scared”
Seafarers are a London based group of musicians uniting some of the most prominent voices in contemporary jazz, Celtic, and folk music. Sharing their latest folk-tinged single “And Maybe I’m Scared”, the track is the third taste from the group’s forthcoming debut album Orlando, set for release later this year.
Combining their diverse influences to create a rich musical soundscape, Lauren Kinsella’s (Snowpoet) vocals are hauntingly beautiful – floating effortlessly across a tapestry of textured rhythms.
“Stemming from a meditation on loneliness, ‘And Maybe I’m Scared’ is a reflection on the social anxieties that are familiar to so many of us living in the modern world,” they explain. “We are taken from the tower blocks of bustling cities, through cold suburban streets, exploring the idea that we are united and bound by our common fears and disquietude.”
Written over the course of four years, Orlando is set for release in Autumn 2020 with live dates soon to follow. Drawing inspiration from Virginia Woolf’s timeless work on liberation, the collective voices on Orlando yearn for freedom as threads of solitude, longing, and an affiliation with the natural world are entangled throughout the 9 track project.
“And Maybe I’m Scared” is out now. Tune in below.Tweet
