Back with their first taste of new music since 2019’s acclaimed Don’t Let Go album, one of Australia’s favourite modern rock acts – Dear Seattle – are back with new single In My Head. Today’s release also comes alongside the announce of a long-awaited Dear Seattle headline tour, before the band premiere the In My Head music video at 4pm AEST this Friday June 11 via their YouTube channel.
Glowing yet melancholic in sound, Dear Seattle vocalist/guitarist Brae Fisher shares that ‘In My Head’ describes the familiar feeling of being stuck in your own head while trying to connect with others.
“It’s been a minute, but we’re so damn excited to be back with new music! ‘In My Head’ is about stepping back into your regular life after a period of withdrawn reflection, walking around like a spectator to your own life. There’s a thin barrier of disconnection as you try to adjust and settle back into everyday interactions, which is just enough to make you notice the true absurdity of monotonous small talk and forced conversations,” he says.
“It’s a more nuanced and mature direction for us but still keeps the classic Dear Seattle sound with an emotionally charged singalong chorus and introspective verses, so it felt like the perfect song for us to return with. We can’t wait to get back out there and play some this song and our other new tunes for you live.”
Following recent appearances supporting Dune Rats on their national tour, playing Summer Sounds in Adelaide earlier in the year and appearing at Next Exit Festival (Ocean Alley, Spacey Jane + more) last month, Dear Seattle are finally appeasing the masses with the announce of their national single tour. For the first time since selling out all shows on their 2019 Australian headliner, the band will head around the country next month with support from Teen Jesus and the Jean Teasers.
