One of Ireland’s most interesting talents to emerge in 2020 is Seba Safe, who follows the success of his latest single ‘In Waiting’ on Paragon Records by releasing an acoustic version of the song on Feb 12th 2021. Writing candidly and honestly on personal relationships, love, loss and change, Seba Safe’s pertinent lyrics are wrapped in a sound that combines Pop, Folk, Dance and R’n’B with inspirations spanning from the sparse folk pop of Maggie Rodgers, Big Thief and Julien Baker to the more modern production of Dermot Kennedy and Lil Peep.
Speaking of the track, Mike D’Alton (aka Seba Safe) says:
“Sometimes we latch on to the familiarity of our past in an effort to keep alive an old feeling or a memory of better times. Instead of moving on and creating a new story our mind gets caught in the cyclical behaviour, a habitual repetitiveness of thoughts. Thoughts of a once safe but now destructive space filled with loose ends and false hopes. Waiting for the future with one eye still resting on a time and love that have both long since passed.“
2021 sees Seba Safe securing solid DSP editorial support across his releases to date, selling out a second headline show in Dublin, and garnering significant airplay support from BBC 6 Music, RTE 2FM (including Record of the Week from Tracy Clifford) amongst others.
