New for 2021, Mancunians Sea Fever are a group with instantly recognisable pasts. The band is fronted by Iwan Gronow who previously cut his teeth in HAVEN before joining Johnny Marr’s band. Iwan is joined by Bethany Cassidy, daughter of Larry Cassidy and member of Factory Records legendary band SECTION 25. Alongside them is Tom Chapman, previously the bass player for BAD LIEUTENANT, now for NEW ORDER and as well as Sea Fever and Phil Cunningham, previously a member of Britpop stars MARION and now also a member of NEW ORDER.
The quartet are joined on drums by newcomer Eliot Barlow, however the track CROSSED WIRES features the human drum machine that is Stephen Morris, famed for being a founding member of both Joy Division and New Order. Formed in 2019, Iwan explains that their coming together as a unit felt inevitable: “We’d wanted to work with each other for ages, so when we finally sat down in the studio, the band just seemed to come together naturally.” “It felt like we were really free to explore the kinds of music that have always inspired us,” says Tom, “we dug right through the record crates of our minds to shape the sound of Sea Fever.
