Welcome to the sea birds website. For the most up to date happenings on the band please also feel free to check out our Facebook address too. However in terms of giving you some background on the group we hope that you find this site helpful. By way of background The Sea Birds began crafting their rich melodic-driven pop sound in late 2014 - intially as an accoustic trio. All of the band members are based in Melbourne, however Loic Mamet originally hales from Mauritius. Dual lead vocalists Lara Wentworth and Loic Mamet provide a rich vocal dexterity and original approach to the song writing direction of fellow founding member and songwriter Michael Amarant. Along with rhythm section Lucas Wentworth (bass) and drummer James W du Plessis, the band released their debut single "Am I wasting my time" to critical acclaim in November 2015. Beehive Candy reviewed the single as "a stunning glimpse into the beautifully crafted repertoire of this illustrious five piece". The bands debut 2016 EP "A Short Romance" has been reviewed by international online music outlet "Digital Journal" as "assured, confident song writing" and is available here at our website.
The Sea Birds debut album "Blue or Grey" is now due for release in October 2017 and was recorded at both Studio One Be and Atlantis- and has been produced by Australian music veteran and master producer David McCluney.
The group has also uploaded a number of film clips to You-Tube of tracks lifted off "A Short Romance" including the 'sweet but sad' single "Am I wasting my time" and the acoustic laden "Never been in love before" - shot by Sean Mulquiney at One B studios in Melbourne.
Stay tuned for upcoming dates at the Brother's Public Bar in Fitzroy, and the Purple Emerald (Northcote), Grace Darling Hotel (Collingwood) and the St Andrews Hotel (St Andrews) over coming months...
