SEA FEVER will be performing a one-off show @ Hebden Bridge Trades Club on 23 June 2022.
A breath-taking new band fronted by Iwan Gronow (Haven, Johnny Marr) on vocals and guitars alongside singer Bethany Cassidy (Section 25), SEA FEVER fuses intelligent electronics with classic melodies and chiming guitars, underpinned by soaring, hypnotic strings. Formed in 2019, the band also features New Order’s Tom Chapman and Phil Cunningham – with Tom on bass, guitars, synths and programming, and Phil on guitars. Powering the band’s pulsing beats is Elliot Barlow, who is joined on the band’s first studio outing by New Order drummer, Stephen Morris.
A sum of all their parts, SEA FEVER’s resultant sound is one of upbeat pop that makes waves alongside wistful descending minor chords and surf guitars. Teutonic rhythms kling and klang their way against echoing layers of melancholy and hope. Explaining how SEA FEVER came together, Iwan says:
“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.”
In 2022, SEA FEVER have fleshed out their live sound and are planning a special show at Hebden Bridge Trades on 23rd June. Featuring a headline set from the band, the night will also feature a billing of special guests TBA… Tickets are on sale now.
