Seabirds - Real Tears (Matinee Recordings) 
Seabirds - Real Tears

Release Date: 24th September 2013

There's not a lot of information out there about Nottingham quintet Seabirds but there are a few facts that we can be sure of. Firstly, they sure do know how to craft an indie pop ditty with melody and heart string tugging lyrics that Belle & Sebastian would kill for (alright, maybe not kill, but they would get all sulky about life. Secondly, 'Real Tears' could be a future indie disco smash as it has just the right kind of rhythm for shuffling about awkwardly to before failing to make a move on anyone at all. Thirdly, Seabirds have got that male/female vocal harmony thing down to a fine art which makes an already bitter-sweet song all the more enjoyable. And with a 7" release coming up on U.S. label Matinee Records, you can safely say that there are good things on the horizon for our very own Seabirds. Cheesy? Yeah. It's Sunday, I don't care.
