Byron Bay dream-pop quartet Seaside are today thrilled to release their new single, Sycamore – a song inspired by the need to persevere through social anxiety and self- . The track premiered last night on triple j’s Home & Hosed, met with praise by Declan Byrne: “They keep putting out tunes that really sneak under your skin…[‘Sycamore’ has] some really beautiful jangly riffs.”
Tomorrow the band will also share the quirky video accompaniment for Sycamore, premiering now on Pilerats. The video was filmed and edited by Robert Sherwood at Sherwood Studio.
Sycamore draws inspiration from lead singer Darcy Dexter’s own experience with social anxiety and self-doubt, along with the battles she sees in friends and other around her.
“Life can put you in positions that make us uncomfortable,” Darcy explains. “The line “Ghosts in my house” is a metaphor for allowing something/some situation to weave itself into the wires of your mind, leaving them tangled, making us feel like we’re being forced to explain ourselves”.
The track was recorded with Paul Pilseniks (Powderfinger / Dope Lemon) at Rockinghorse Studios in Byron, co-produced and mixed by Dylan Nash (Dean Lewis / BROODS) and mastered by George Georgiadis.
