Seaforth: ‘What I Get For Loving You’ – EP Review
Seaforth releases their new EP, What I Get For Loving You, out now, August 26th on all streaming platforms. Listen to the brand new project below and check out our full review.
Australian-country duo, Seaforth (Mitch Thompson and Tom Jordan) is ready for the next iteration of their career. After sharing music on social media, their sophomore EP, What I get For Loving You is officially out now.
The new project kicks off with the recently released jam, “Queen of Daytona Beach” featuring Sean Kingston. The collaboration creates a new sound for music lovers of all genres to enjoy. It also marks the first of two collaborations on the project. Later in the record, Seaforth features Jordan Davis on their fun-loving song “Good Beer.”
“And a good beer is a cold one // If you got green, better roll one // And the right drive is a slow one down a backroad // Baby, I know that the whole town’s for the home team // Better hoedown in them old jeans // And I’m damn sure that the day’s done // With a good beer // And a good beer is a cold one”
This record also includes viral hits like “Breakups” and “Magic.” “Breakups” features the incredible duo’s harmonies, while they sing about maladaptive ways to deal with a heartbreak. On the other hand, “Magic,” is a quiet, swoon-worthy love song that puts you in an instant good mood. With lyrics like, “even on your worst day, you’re still magic,” it’s hard not to fall in love.
Seaforth also include some brand new songs on this project, including “Palm of Your Hand” and “Used To It.” On the former, the duo relies on their hooky lyrics and killer storytelling ability. On arguably one of our favorite songs off the project, “Used To It,” the men lean back into their soft side, bringing quiet vulnerability to the forefront.
Despite being so good at being open, Seaforth manages to showcase their vulnerability in a new way. The quirky and poppy, “Dr. Phil” is as clever, as it is catchy. Although it is a song about dealing with a break-up, it is fun to listen to.
Of course, we would be remiss if we did not mention the title track. According to Thompson and Jordan, “What I Get For Loving You” is the sequel to “Breakups.” The heart wrenching song is a declaration to what it feels like to get your heart ripped out and to have to pick up the pieces. Relatable as ever, Seaforth clearly know a thing or two about heartbreak.
“I guess that’s just what I get for loving you // Watching you walk out of my living room // Then seeing you arrive with somebody new // Now I gotta act like I’m happy too, nah // But I guess that’s just what I get for loving you // I knew all along what I had to lose // You’re out there running ’round like you’re bulletproof // While I still got some shit that I’m working through right now // I guess that’s just what I get for loving you”
For a duo that is equally as funny as they are talented, it is a pleasure to watch them create. The brand new EP is full of fun-loving jams and heart melting love songs that will make you fall deeper in love with life, yourself, and your partner. Seaforth is the real deal.
