Ohio’s Seabird are living the dream that most bands could only wish for. The band has only been together (for the most part) since 2004. After a year of writing and lineup changes, Seabird recorded their first EP, Spread Your Broken Wings And Try, in one of the member’s living rooms. Within that same year, the EP landed on the right desk at EMI, resulting in Seabird playing a private showcase for the label, from which they were signed. Seabird, however moved over to Credential Records, the home of Fiction Family and Edison Glass, soon afterwards. Another EP was recorded, but in 2008 their first full length, Till We See The Shore, was released to a well received audience. Since then, Seabird’s music has been featured on Num3ers, Grey's Anatomy, and most notably Pushing Daisies.
Seabird’s sound is an interesting blend of Coldplay-ish piano pop mixed in with more experimental indie rock sensibilities. Seabird has always been able to take what is popular but make it their own. Where other bands in the same genre rely on soaring atmosphere and heavy orchestration, Seabird brings the audience in to a much more intimate head space. With such peers as Coldplay and The Fray, Seabird does not let themselves get overshadowed. They don’t just blend into the background.
Seabird is a band of believers, but the themes of their music is not overtly spiritual. The prevailing message of redemption and the pursuit of it flows through most of their songs, but the band can also write a great love song. Seabird seems to able to explore both sides of their character, the mainstream and the introspective, without ever falling into a destructive duality. The message of hope for redemption is most clear in the band’s break out single from Til We See the Shore, “Rescue”.
Seabird's follow-up Rocks Into Rivers is set to release on December 15th and the new single "Don't You Know You're Beautiful" became avaialble on October 30th.
