ARTIST OF THE WEEK: No. 23 Seafret

What with the sudden re-emergence of both Damien Rice and José González earlier this year, it seems that the sound of 2015 is going to be far more folk orientated, and that would explain the immediate appreciation that Seafret have been receiving.

While the acoustic pair have only been active for the best part of a year, the release of their debut EP 'Give Me Something' a few months ago set off a tidal wave of kudos amongst the musical press, who have already begun to pitch them as one of the bands to watch over the coming year.

Hitting that narrow niche of both underground credibility with a commercially accessible sound, Seafret have already found themselves doing a Maida Vale session for BBC Radio 1 and are expected to make the shortlist for the organisations well-respected Sound Of poll later this year.

They may only have a handful of songs to their name, but it is clear to hear that the quality and execution of their songwriting is impeccable and we look forward to hearing more from these two very soon.
