Seek Harbour are a dual vocals post-hardcore band from Kent, UK. The band have already surpassed 200,000 streams on Spotify alone. The band are growing quickly and resonating with fans of bands such as Being As An Ocean, Casey and Acres. ‘Far From Home’ is the debut EP from Seek Harbour. It is released across all streaming platforms on the 8th April 2022 with the focus track ‘TY (FBMH)’ that accompanies it. Over the EP release cycle the band have already landed coverage with the likes of BBC, Kerrang Radio (Featured Artist Of The Week), Moshville Times, Karma Radio, Hardbeat, Dreambound, TotalRock (Single Of The Week), Idioteq, ERB Radio, Banks Radio, All Punked Up, Noizze, and Local Distortion. With a busy 2022 scheduled, the band promise plenty of new music and will be touring and playing shows across the UK too with the likes of Schemata Theory and more.

Speaking about the EP’s focus track ‘TY (FBMH)’ guitarist and songwriter CJ says – “TY (FBMH) or ‘Thank You For Bringing Me Here’ is an open letter to the people that brought us into the world. As individuals, we’re fortunate to have not lost any of our parents, but we agreed that the notion ranks amongst our greatest fears. As a band, we’ve touched on ‘fear’ before, but in this instance there’s a horrible sense of inevitably involved. Perhaps it’s a reflection of the members generation, or maybe it’s been amplified by the recent pandemic. Regardless, it’s something we desperately wanted to approach through our art. That said, this final offering from our debut EP (Far From Home) isn’t supposed to be a morbid listen. It’s more a collection of our inner thoughts finally spoken aloud. We tend to avoid dwelling on any subject matter that brings us discomfort. This song is an admission to ourselves that, whilst we are saddened by the idea we are above all, grateful for our upbringing. This is embodied in the songs final line ‘It kills me knowing there’ll come a time, you won’t hear the line, thank you for bringing me here’. Structurally, we avoided concluding the above sentence until the very end of the song, in order to underpin quite how difficult it can be to admit to oneself that one of your biggest fears will more than likely be realised. We wanted the track to end on a peaceful note – at peace with inevitability.  For the visuals we worked with the same company that producer the film for EP tracks 1 and 3. The importance of surrounding yourself with a team that are equally passionate about their art cannot be overstated. The video sees the band performing without Loz, who is wrapped up in a storyline that helps emphasise both the despair of the song and the sombre yet heartfelt gratitude mentioned earlier.  Musically, yes, the song is downtempo and the timbre is mellow, however it’s not supposed to be a ballad. We’re very proud of our melodic/aggressive interplay. This song is supposed to be a presentation to an age group that stereotypically don’t listen to the genre, hence the soundscape we have tried to create, whilst staying true to our sound.”
