Dear Seattle have released their new single Here To Stay, taken from their upcoming album Someday.
“When I was younger, I never doubted myself. It felt like a had a superpower; like if I set my mind to something and really worked for it, I could somehow always get to where I wanted to be. My brother even used to say that I “walked in the light” because of it. But the last few years have been tough, and I can feel the time slowly chipping away at that confidence. I’ve started to feel the cracks of analysis paralysis creeping in and a tendency to feel like I’ve got nothing left of value to offer,” frontman Brae Fisher comments.
“As a musician or a creative, it’s so easy to feel like what you’re doing doesn’t matter or isn’t worthy of appreciation, or that your love of being creative is consistently clouded by bullshit like social media and the habitual comparison of yourself to others. It happens to everyone and it can make you want to give it all up. But I’ve since learnt that if you stop focussing on the ever-moving goalposts you set for yourself, and take the time to look back at what you’ve really achieved and what you get to spend your time doing as an artist, you’ll see the true value of it all. It’s easy to miss it in the moment, but it’s always there… the passion, the drive, the inspiration, the love, the friendships and the purest form of joy.
“Here To Stay dictates my path to that realisation, and the music video acts as a window to it all for others to see what I am referring to. I can’t help but smile when I watch it, because it’s simply us, doing what we love more than anything. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.”
Someday is due for release on 2nd September 2022, available to pre-order HERE.
