Dubai Opera welcomes acclaimed British duo, Seafret, presenting their latest album on September 15.
The culmination of two years of graft by band members and longtime friends Jack Sedman and Harry Draper, “Wonderland” is a sublime body of work that guides the listener through the band’s story, from heartbreak and loss to the joys of love and new life. “It’s the project we’re most proud of,” says Sedman. “The one we’re most invested in and emotionally connected to.”
Formed in 2011 after meeting at an open mic night near their hometown of Bridlington, Yorkshire, Seafret rose to swift acclaim upon the release of their debut project, Give Me Something. A year later, in 2015, they released their astounding Oceans EP. Accompanied by a video starring Game of Thrones actor Maisie Williams as a bullied teen, the lead single “Oceans'' remains a fan favourite, with over 170 million Spotify streams.
Seafret’s debut album, 2016’s Tell Me It’s Real, was released as part of a distribution deal with Columbia Records, it charted in the UK and received positive reviews from critics, who praised its “moments of real beauty” and delicate emotion. They created their second album, 2020’s Most Of Us Are Strangers, over eight weeks in a Glasgow studio with producer Ross Hamilton. The album caught the attention of national publications including The Times, which singled out the band’s “quality songwriting” and accomplished sound. A sped-up version of their 2016 single “Atlantis”, from their debut album, went viral on TikTok, racking up 1.7 billion views with the song hashtag and, to date, more than 400 million streams on Spotify.
Snapped up by a major label and moving to London in the early stages of their career, Seafret have since found their feet on their own terms working with some of the UK’s most renowned producers, from Cam Blackwood (Florence and the Machine, George Ezra, London Grammar) to Steve Robson (Miley Cyrus, One Direction, Take That).
“Our music always has to have something real about it. People can always recognise real feeling.” – Jack Sedman
