Seafret-Atlantis

They met with each other at an open mic night. Harry Draper, an experienced local musician and Jach Sedman, who he had just discovered his voice skills! Hailing from the small town of Bridlington, North East of England, the duo chose the name Seafret for their music. As well as being a pun on the guitar fret board, it’s also a local term; it applies to the rolling mists that come in off the North Sea during summer. They clicked instantly. That’s how they learned to write: through playing and the chemistry between them. Honest and captivating , Seafret’s material has a beautifully contagious feel. Writing about life as it evolves around them, the two have a rare observational eye.
The video of "Atlantis" is directed by Brendan Canty, who was also behind Hozier's massive hit 'Take Me To Church'. The video features beautiful shots of Ireland, as it follows the story of two children who find their own lost city of Atlantis. The band said of the song's themes: "Growing up by the sea, we've always been fascinated by the lost city of Atlantis. We thought it would be different to use it as a metaphor to evolve the song into something more than just a standard heartbreak track."


Seafret-Atlantis

The birds that left the trees, the light bores onto me,
I can feel you lying there all on your own
We got here the hard way, all those words that we exchange
Is it any wonder things get dark?

Cause in my heart and in my head,
I’ll never take back the things I said
So high above, I feel it coming down
She said in my heart and in my head
Tell me why this has to end
oh no, oh no

I can’t save us, my Atlantis, we fall
We built this town on shaky ground
I can’t save us my Atlantis, oh no
We built it up to pull it down

Now all the birds have fled, the hurt just leaves me scared
Losing everything I’ve ever known
It’s all become too much, maybe I’m not built for love
If I knew that I could reach you, I would go

It’s in my heart and in my head
You can’t take back the things you said
So high above, I feel it coming down
She said in my heart and in my head
Tell me why this has to end
Oh no, oh no

I can’t save us, my Atlantis, we fall
We built this town on shaky ground
I can’t save us my Atlantis, oh no
We built it up to pull it down

And we build it up, and we build it up
And we build it up to pull it down
And we build it up, and we build it up
And we build it up to pull it down

I can’t save us, my Atlantis, we fall
We built this town on shaky ground
I can’t save us my Atlantis, oh no
We built it up to pull it down
