Bio

In the swirling twilight between inky darkness and bright revelation is where Tori Zietsch and Daniel Pinkerton meet to excavate the essence of Seavera.

The duo reunited when they moved into the same street in Melbourne after first meeting as young teens in northern NSW. Together, they forged their forthcoming debut EP (Due March 2nd ), including the latest single, “Make Me Uncomfortable” in Dan’s back shed as well as in makeshift studios across Fitzroy.

Playing around with acoustic guitars, random things they found in Dan’s back yard, and an out of tune upright they had inherited from friend, “Make Me Uncomfortable” is an elegy to the kind of people who live daringly, the ones that aren’t afraid to challenge themselves, to seek honesty, truth and authenticity in the way that they choose to live.

Seavera also recently won the Pieater competition to spend a few days workshopping, recording, mixing, and mastering a track in their newly built recording studio ‘Bellbird’ in Collingwood, VIC. Tori and Dan will be working with Tom Iansek and Jo Syme of Big Scary and Tom Fraser from Pieater for a special track to come out later this year.
 
“Make Me Uncomfortable” is mastered by Andrei Eremin (Chet Faker, Wafia, The Harpoons, Leisure Suite, Banoffee) and is the final single off Seavera’s debut EP – to be released March 2nd.
 
Their first two singles off the EP 'Caving' and 'Parallel and Repeat' have already racked up an impressive 2.7 million Spotify plays, gaining airplay on triple J and community radio, as well as recognition from radio and bloggers internationally.
Having recently played support for acts such as Tora and Kllo, the duo also played their first festival showcase at BIGSOUND 2017, and will be supporting Woodes in Brisbane, Melbourne, and Sydney throughout March.

Everyone's been talking about this track around the office. And rightfully. It's special. That voice just engulfs you. Really beautiful.

Subtle but strong. A hard combination of qualities to pull off musically.
