Released in June to critical acclaim, Martin’s Garden, the sophomore album from Seafoam Green, is a colourful melting pot of Americana, rock, folk and psychedelia with Seafoam Green’s own musical identity, by way of their Irish & Liverpool roots, fully stamped over it.

Continuing to make their mark, the band have just released their new single “Swimming In The Paint”, an instantly loveable quirky slice of psychedelic pop driven by a groovy organ with the distinctive swirling fun machine keyboard/clav sounds of Spencer Pope colliding beautifully with the band’s vocal harmonies.

On the new single, the band said, “‘Swimming in the Paint’ narrates the daily ups and downs of our human experience through a kaleidoscope of colour. We all have different associations towards certain shades and this is an attempt at articulating some of our own. We ponder the strive towards ‘uniqueness’ and the ‘perfect’ scenario.”

We’re sure you’ll understand why the world is quickly falling under the spell of the Americana duo once you’ve checked out the single here:

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
