Seafret - Give Me Something

Day 207 Seafret – Atlantis

Needing little to no introduction on this blog at all, the magnificent Seafret have provided us with an impeccable Friday treat in the form of their brand new single Atlantis. Raising the bar once again, Atlantis is a majestic slice of acoustic-pop that has radio potential scrawled all over it.
