The Australian country duo and 2019 NYCountry Swag artists to watch, Mitch Thompson and Tom Jordan, better known as Seaforth released their first EP at midnight titled Love That, after their catchy hit song with the same name. The EP contains the two pre-released songs, “Love That” and “Talk to Me” as well as two new songs “Good and Gone” and “Taken Your Picture”.
“Good and Gone” is written by both band members along with Gordie Sampson and Josh Miller, and is about a guy at a bar getting over a breakup, She has moved on to someone else and he’s alone drinking his sorrows away. Although it’s meant to be a sad song, it has a very up-tempo, pop-infused chorus.
“You know I miss seeing you ’round / But I hope you don’t show up right now / ‘Cause I’m gone / Sittin’ and sippin’ somethin’ a little too strong / Taking a shot for everything that went wrong / And that’s a lot, it’s killing me / Killing me that you’ve gone”
“Taken Your Picture” is another love song but with a more melancholy tone. This one is about a guy reminiscing on a missed opportunity with a girl. Written by both band members with Deric Ruttan and Jonathan Singleton, the chorus describes the exact moment he should’ve leaned in for the kiss but didn’t.
“We were watching that sunlight fade / You were sittin’ on the porch at my place / Kind of playing with the tear in your jeans / Your eyes kind of cutting right through me”
It is not uncommon for Australian artists to make it big in the genre. Keith Urban, more recently Morgan Evans and many others have had an incredible amount of success in country music. We saw Seaforth open for Kane Brown’s One Night Only show at the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden. Their humor, positive attitude, charming personality and most importantly, their tremendous amount of talent will lead them to a lot of success in the industry. We are excited to watch them grow and see their career take off!
“Good and Gone” “Taken Your Picture” are now available everywhere you buy or stream music. Take a listen below and check out more new recently released music here on our ‘New Country Music’ playlist. Be sure to give the playlist a follow for your weekly new country music fix.
