The Southport duo of Tom Dale and Denis Brice have as Seattle Yacht Club, a band who have been bringing us regular slices of their electro-pop sound over the last year or so, picking up plays from the likes of BBC 6Music and Xfm along the way, as well as making appearances at festivals over the summer and at other gigs.
You’ve Gone Too Far is perhaps their best track to date, a bit of pop perfection packed into its running time of just shy of the three minute mark. Its breezy bounce feels more attuned to the sound of summer than the depths of winter, but there’s perhaps a darker side to the lyrics that’s hidden behind the general cheery tone.
2014 could be a real breakout year for the band. With 5000 SoundCloud plays of the track in less than two weeks and an engaging social media presence this looks like a duo who know what they’re doing and where they are going. For the moment just let them bring a little sunshine into this long cold winter.
