Can you talk to us more about your latest single “House On The Hill”?
DAVE : We love it, it was one of the first songs we tracked in the sessions. We love the Southern RocknRoll feel of the Allman Brother etc so it was great to explore that with a full band. Lyrically, it’s about expanding your mind and knowing that you don’t need any superficial accessories to reach where you want/need to be mentally.
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
DAVE: We were gifted a week in an amazing lodge on a lake in Montana on our last tour (we may have ingested some shrooms of the magic variety) and it really allowed us to pause and think in the middle of a 5 month tour.
How was the filming process and experience behind the video?
DAVE: At the moment we kinda have to keep everything in house, we used Muireann’s house as the set and that’s what we came up with it. Our opinion is that if the music is killer the music video will be killer too, so we weren’t that worried about it.
How was the recording and writing process?
DAVE :It was the best fucking thing ever! We got to hang out with our new and old friends and afforded the best possible conditions to make music. There were parts where I honestly felt like a Beatle, stood there in a poncho doing vocal tracks in this amazing house in the middle of Georgia, USA sipping a fine wine! haha. I can help but grin every time I think about it.
What was it like to work with Tyler Greenwell and how did that relationship develop?
Tyler is the coolest dude. He really dove into all the demos we had for the album and sculpted what songs he thought would work as an album. I had met Tyler about 4 years previous when I was on tour with Rich Robinson and he as opening for Tedeschi Trucks. A couple years later a mutual friend said to him that he heard we were looking to make a new album and he made it
What role does Ireland play in your music?
None at all, technically – you’re not going to hear a set of uileann pipes on the record, not yet anyway! However, we are both constantly inspired by memories/experiences/connections to home and so in that way, Ireland will always feature in our music as we both draw on our lives up to date.
Does the new single mean we can expect a new album?
Sure does. Martin’s Garden comes out this June and we can’t wait for the world to hear it!
Is there an album release date and what’s the story behind the title?
We have a soft release date of June 1st, but it’s a moveable feast so it could be any time in June. Martin’s Garden in Roswell, Atlanta, GA is a dope little organic farm where we cut the record and there has been a past theme of locationally themed titles, so it made sense to name the record after the dude who was cool enough to have us record on his property, Tony Martin.
What else is happening next in Seafoam Green’s world?
Apart from this year of single releases and the album release, we have some exciting tours booked towards the end of the year! We are going to be heading back home for some shows in Ireland , getting back to Spain and hopefully a total Europe tour too! We hope to have a new album underway by next year and have already written a fair few songs to consider for the third record, so there’s that to look forward to also!
