It's a straight rock groove with some jazz modulation from the electric guitar and a lead vocal delivery with real soul. From whisper to shout, Aubrey Haddard, with her single Seaweed & Sand, shows us the facility of her vocal riffing and gives us a window into the lyrical mind of a very talented artist.
Part of the beauty of this is the large metaphor of being lost at sea, and that mindset of thirst and hallucination. What I hear from these lyrics is the weighing of circumstance versus experience. Go on.
From the website:
Born and raised in the Hudson River Valley of New York, Aubrey Haddard now performs consistently throughout the North East, bridging the gap between new-wave R&B and old-school blues with timeless soul and effortless melody.
