Seafoam Green release their new single ‘Mine All Mine’ the second single from forthcoming album ‘Martin’s Garden’.
It follows hard-hitting, good-times rock’n’roll song ‘House On The Hill’ and shows off a more laid back feel. The track is a glorious easy-on-the-ear sun-drenched Americana love song, made even more stunning by the slide guitar licks of Derek Trucks.
Seafoam Green specialise in what we have come to know as Americana. If you want earthy, rootsy, blues, gospel, country, folk, the band have it. Amalgamated, this is the sound of a glorious rock n’ soul revival, Seafoam Green’s inimitable collision of Irish Roots and Southern American rock and soul is a unique take on a classic sound.
Speaking on the new single, Dave O’Grady says, “’You will never waste my time’, the first line of the song came from “my muse” or whoever sends me inspiration. It was the first block laid to start building the house that would become ‘Mine All Mine’. My original approach was to use that phrase as a message to someone who I would not let waste my time in a negative way, but the song quickly told me that it was actually going to be a love letter and totally flipped the meaning of the first line. I love that about writing, same line, many meanings or interpretations and you can’t always take credit.”
And on Derek Trucks being part of the track, O’Grady explains, “When we were recording the song in Atlanta, our producer Tyler pulled me outside to chat about the song and the approach for the day. Referring to the demo Tyler said ‘Dave, there is a lot of slide on this song…do you want Derek to do it?’ and I thought ‘DO I WHAT????? WHAT.A.DREAM.’”
Seafoam Green’s upcoming long player – ‘Martin’s Garden’ – is the band’s second studio record. Their debut was a collaboration with Rich Robinson, of the Black Crowes. Once again, Seafoam Green are collaborating with the artists residing in their own record collections – inspirations steeped in the culture of the Southern States.
How did these two Irish rock n’ rollers go from talking about the music they love, to playing with the musicians who made it? It all comes down to the songs they are writing.
Tyler Greenwell – founding member of Grammy Award winning Tedeschi Trucks Band – got wind of Seafoam Green preparing to make their next record, and made it known that he wanted to be involved. It wasn’t long before Seafoam Green were out recording in Atlanta, USA.
