Album Review

On their sophomore album, 2015's Colour Blind, Canada's Seaway make exuberant, guitar-driven punk-pop that's both super catchy and fun, and also earnestly passionate. Which is to say that, while the Ontario five-piece aren't overly serious here (there are no political rants), lyrically, they lean more toward the emo end of the punk spectrum with songs about screwed up relationships, lost love, and past mistakes. As they sing on "Best Mistake," "Sunday morning, and I feel sorry about the pieces of me that I left at your house/Down on my luck, my mind was anxious and you made me face it with your lips on my neck and a taste from the bottle." That song, as with most of the cuts on Colour Blind, showcases Seaway's knack for nicely contradicting some of their darker lyrical themes with a driving beat and soaring melodic chorus that grabs your attention and begs you to sing along. This anthemic quality is reinforced by the band's distinctive use of double-lead vocals shared between singer Ryan Locke (the sweeter, more resonant one) and guitarist/singer Patrick Carleton (the more robust, throatier one). While the two-singer punk band isn't exactly a rarity, what is rare is to find one where both vocalists actually sing — usually, one of the leads is just there to scream. Thankfully, Locke and Carleton are well-matched with ringing, resonant voices they use to superb effect throughout the album. It also doesn't hurt that Seaway know how to structure a song to deliver maximum dramatic tension and release. Cuts like "Trick (So Sweet)" and "Turn Me Away," with their palm-muted guitar riffs, cut-time into double-time drum parts, and harmonized vocals make for spine-tingling pop. Similarly, the euphorically romantic "Airhead," with its chunky, Weezer-esque guitar riffs and swoony, thematic refrain of "so tie me to your fingertip so I don't float away," is a late album stand-out that speaks to the overall depth of quality and pure listenability on display on Colour Blind.

Customer Reviews

Yes!!!

Seaway is one of my favorite bands i saw them at warped tour and they killed it! and this song sounds just as dope as all of their other stuff. More people should listen to Seaway

Pop Punk is alive.

Every single so far has been fire. Stoked for the full album and what the future has in store for these guys.

"Amazing" is an understatement

Pop punk record of the year no doubt. I couldn't believe the lyrical content and the jam approach of the instrumentals. Ryan and Patrick pushed their voices and hit notes We haven't heard and its much different than Hoser but its such a great different. 10/10 album dude. Its stuck on repeat on my phone, go Seaboiz.
