Bio

Fresh off a sold-out debut headliner and an appearance at Fed Square's Live Summer Series, Seb Szabo is wasting no time taking 2021 by storm.

His new single 'Even If You Break My Heart', a cathartic and anthemic slice of pop rock songwriting, is the first of a collection of stories from Seb's forthcoming debut EP, set for release later this year. Think Coldplay with a splash of David Le'aupepe (Gang of Youths), the track bursts with life and energy as the marching drums and soothing synthesisers create an exciting introduction to the underlying themes of the record.

The track was recorded in 2020 at The Aviary Studios with producer Josh Barber and engineer Stephen Mowat (Ali Barter, Tyne-James Organ) and features special guest Gretta Ray on backing vocals.

Seb and his band blend cinematic indie rock with enigmatic and honest stage presence. Anchored by a resonant voice and lyrics that paint a soaring, colourful portrait of life and love, Seb writes songs built to lift your spirits and empty your lungs.

The song will be launched live at The Gasometer Hotel Bandroom in Melbourne on Thursday, May 20th, with special guests Bec Sykes and Jade Alice.

An assured new single, beautifully executed with twinkly guitar, heartfelt vocals, and a great chorus rise. Nice one Seb!
