Seaforth’s New Song “Close Enough” is available now, November 6th. Listen to the catchy tune from the duo here plus learn more as we dig a little deeper into the track.
If you haven’t heard of Seaforth yet, you may start to hear a lot more of them real soon. Last December when we first sat down with the duo, their charming personalities, hilarious banter, and incredible artistry made us love them, and now the country-pop pair, made up of Mitchell Thompson and Tom Jordan, just released their latest single “Close Enough”. This release follows their recent singles “Talk About”, released in September, and “Everything Falls for You”, released this past May.
“Close Enough” is about that one relationship that everyone can relate to. The one where you keep saying you’re going to stop seeing the other person but never seem to be able to. No matter how hard you try to resist, you keep finding yourselves going back to each other. The two may know that they’re not each other’s perfect match, but they’re okay with being “close enough”. They both know that it isn’t a ‘forever thing’, it’s just exactly what they want right now.
“We don’t know what it is / but if this ain’t it / it’s close enough / close enough/ if this ain’t love, it’s close enough”
Thompson and Jordan are life-long friends from Sydney, Australia who moved to Nashville in 2017 to follow their dreams of playing country music together. After being in Music City for a little over a year, they released their first two songs: “Talk to Me” and “Love That”. “Love That” eventually became the title track of their first EP, released in April of 2019, which added two additional songs: “Good and Gone” and “Take Your Picture”.
In 2019, Seaforth were also featured on Mitchell Tenpenny’s hit song “Anything She Says”, which just went Gold last month. This collaboration came from the duo spending much of 2018 and 2019 opening shows and touring with Tenpenny. They’ve also opened shows for Kane Brown, Brett Young, Morgan Wallen, and even two shows for Keith Urban, back home in Sydney in December of 2019. Additionally, Seaforth also made their Opry debut in September of 2019.
Thompson and Jordan describe fellow-Aussie Urban as their idol and the one who sparked their desire to get involved in country music and experience it in Nashville. Urban’s influence helps to explain Seaforths unique sound and their inability to fall into one single genre. Not only do they love the different musical backgrounds that find their way into country music, but they are obsessed with the genre’s story-telling nature.
Just past their three year anniversary of moving to Nashville, Seaforth’s success thus far has not disappointed. Three years of playing shows, opening on tour, writing songs, and even getting a few on the radio has led them to this very exciting time that they are currently in. Country music lovers can expect to hear a lot more from Seaforth going forward.
