Watch our interview with Brae Fisher of Dear Seattle!
Local rockers Dear Seattle have treated us with the official music video for their latest single, Way Out. The visual arrives alongside rescheduled tour dates for the bands mammoth east coast tour.
Directed by Ollie Ritchie, the clip captures the energy of Dear Seattle's live shows, as the band perform the song together following a number of live show cancellations and reschedules.. Speaking of the visual, frontman Brae Fisher shares: “We wanted to strip things right back to the core of Dear Seattle on this video. All we wanted was to play in a room together again. It’s something we’ve missed for so long, and to be able to come together again like that was special so we hope people can feel that with us.”
The introspective and personal release arrives years after its initial conception, with Fisher sharing that the track has evolved to a conceptual exploration of codependency and resentment within a relationship and how ones own mental health can influence those around them. Roaring guitars are juxtaposed by softer work, with driving percussion propelling the track as Fisher's commanding vocals play out above. The song continues the bands latest development of sound, leaning into more a more considered and mature sonic exploration.
Kicking off in Narrabeen on February 26, the bands extensive run of shows will continue on to Maroochydore, Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Byron Bay, Geelong, Ballarat, Melbourne, Belgrave, Adelaide, Sydney, Newcastle, Canberra and Ulldulla, before wrapping up in Wollongong on April 9. With support sets from CLEWS, Concrete Surfers and Kitschen Boy, tickets are on sale now!
“Despite having the tour pulled out from us a second time the week of, we haven’t let it dampen our spirits," fisher adds. "If anything it’s made us more eager to blow the head off it when these shows finally happen.”
