Seagull - Mercury     Folk, Psychedelic, Downbeat, Soundscapes 25/02/2019
Seagull creates music that is unashamedly honest and intimate. The instruments swell and fade like melancholy waves that are flooding the suburbs.
The album is concerned with the thin line between insanity and epiphany, vision and hallucination. I wrote a lot of the lyrics in a psych ward, and then spent the following months fleshing out the music down in Pt Lonsdale. The album is both a record of an intense experience and a document of the recovery from it.
