Welcome Seadog 11 June 2021

It is with much enthusiasm & great pleasure that we introduce the latest addition to the austerity records roster, Brighton’s own Seadog! This one has been in the works for a while, & we couldn’t be happier to finally let you all in on it. Fresh off airplay from the likes of amazing radio and 6 Music, the anthemic folk project of Mark Benton & Tom Chadd will be releasing new music VERY soon, so keep an eye out for that. But for now, please join us in welcoming the incredible Seadog to the austerity family!

"With a cool motorik rhythm and atmospheric lead vocals floating above fuzzy-folk guitars and vintage sounding synths, "Old Joe" is a delight. It's like being on a train ride through time as the song looks back wistfully at a life gone by, contemplating all that went before, the happy and the sad. A particularly touching song from what already feels like Seadog's most accomplished work to date." - Simon Raymonde (Cocteau Twins/Bella Union)
