Liverpool outfit Seatbelts have been charming us with beautifully crafted bouts of guitar pop at each and every opportunity over the past few years.
Comprised from James Madden and Ryan Murphy of Hooton Tennis Club, and Abigail Woods and Alex Quinn, Seatbelts return with new single ‘Citylines’ and the foursome have delivered the goods yet again – and with the aid of new collaborators Christian Sandford (guitar, BIRD) and Sarah Sands (saxophone, Green Tangerines) adding layers of added depth to their sound.
Lifted from their forthcoming EP Welcome Simplicity, written and recorded in 2020 ‘Citylines’ is about yearning for experience. Yearning for the feeling of space, bathed in nature beyond the realms of a dysfunctional city. ‘Citylines’ is brimming with a sense of optimism that swells to a euphoric climax as guitars chime, shimmer and twang atop a rhythmic groove amid lavish layers of synth before shifting through the gears to a rousing finish. It is yet another stunning tune from Seatbelts and their quality catalog continues to grow.
