British Trippy Electro Pop Team SEA FEVER Have A New Order ‘DILEMMA’

Daily electricity to load your batteries

10 December 2022

Who: A five-piece collective fronted by Iwan Gronow (Haven, Johnny Marr) on vocals and guitars, alongside singer Beth Cassidy (Section 25), New Order’s Tom Chapman (bass, guitars, synths and programming) and Phil Cunningham (guitars) and powering the band’s pulsing beats is Elliot Barlow.

“We’d wanted to work with each other for ages, so when we finally sat down in the studio, the band just seemed to come together naturally. It felt like we were really free to explore the kinds of music that have always inspired us, we dug right through the record crates of our minds to shape the sound of Sea Fever.”

Last year the band released their exellent debut longplayer FOLDING LINES.

New single: DILEMMA

TUTV: No it’s New Order, but Sea Fever soundshere like NO of the late 80s, early 90s (Technique/Republic ) and that’s totally fine by me. Trippy, synth-y, and catchy.

No, it’s not Peter Hook playing the short bass solo at the beginning, it’s NO’s current bassist Tom Chapman (who joined the new lineup in 2011) but it resonates like a tribute to Hooky. And’s totally fine by me.

Freak Le Chic-like guitar fragments, rotating beats, and vivid duet vocals – Iwan Grono and
Beth Cassidy – complete this 24-hour party people earworm. Ideal tune to dance to, along with their debut album, while you wave goodbye to 2022.
