Bryon Bay-based indie-rock group SEASIDE have just unveiled their compelling new single ‘Dopamine’ – produced by the band themselves and mixed by Paul Pilsneniks (The Mars Volta, Boy & Bear, Silverchair).
Opening with ominous synth and an unwavering beat, ‘Dopamine’ swiftly kicks in with dreamy reverb-soaked guitars, as the mesmerising melodies of Darcy Dexter float elegantly above. The track coasts along effortlessly, before dipping down momentarily and gradually building back up, as it transitions into its soaring and infectious chorus.
Dexter talks about the meaning behind ‘Dopamine’:
“’Dopamine’ is about being so caught in the whirlwind that is love – letting it consume you and throw you around without giving it a definition or needing to explain it. It can be both the best and worst feeling all at once, but it’s the one thing that universally ties us all together.”
To celebrate the release of ‘Dopamine’ the band will perform to a limited capacity audience at Black Bear Lodge, Brisbane. Joining them on the show will be special guests Melaleuca.
In the live arena, the group have toured Australia multiple times, selling out headline shows and sharing stages with Last Dinosaurs, Angus and Julia Stone, The Jungle Giants and Lime Cordiale, and also performing at mainstay festivals Splendour in the Grass, Party in the Paddock, Summersalt Festival, BIGSOUND Festival and Grampians.
Previous singles have been widely embraced by the likes of Australian radio stations triple j, triple j Unearthed, FBi, 3RRR, PBS FM, 4ZZZ, 2XX FM, Bay FM and Edge Radio.
The tracks have also received strong support from tastemaker outlets Pilerats, Life Without Andy, The Revue (CAN) and Indie Obsessive (USA), and Spotify via their playlist’s New Music Friday (USA) and (AU/NZ), Front Left, Chilled Afternoon, Brekkie Time, The Office Stereo, Low Key Weekend, Australian Viral 50, Indie Arrivals and Gegen den Strom.
In the coming weeks, SEASIDE will reveal an accompanying music video for ‘Dopamine’.
