New Music – Seafieldroad

A late contender for “Album Of The Year” may well be the latest musical project from Swimmer One singer Andrew Eaton (above) who has delivered an album of piano based songs titled “There Are No Maps For This part Of The City” under the guise of “Seafieldroad”.

The songs have a very melancholy feel about them and will appeal to fans of The Blue Nile , Steven Lindsay and Craig Armstrong.

“Hanging” – Seafieldroad

In promotion of the album release tomorrow (29/11/10) you can dowload two free tracks by clicking HERE

For years he had been writing music on the piano – delicate, melancholy, occasionally funny songs inspired by writers as diverse as Mark Eitzel, Momus, Jane Siberry, Suzanne Vega and Steve Reich.

A few of these (The Dark Ages, The Erskine Bridge, Drowning Nightmare 1) evolved into songs for Swimmer One’s first two albums, but until recently most of them stayed in his head.

Then, while finishing their second album, Dead Orchestras, Swimmer One decided it was time to record some of this other music as well. Andrew played piano and sang. Laura Cameron Lewis co-wrote several new songs and sang too. Hamish Brown produced it all and added electronic noises and ambient effects. The very talented Pete Harvey (Withered Hand, Meursault, The Starlets, The Leg) contributed string arrangements.

The results can be heard on two albums released by Biphonic Records – visit
