International music alert! Mark Benton and Tom Chadd of Brighton duo, Seadog, are back with their first single from their forthcoming album, Internal Noise. Recorded at Bella Union Studios in Brighton and produced by Jack Wolter of Penelope Isles, the song blends dream-pop synths and drum machines with layered guitars and Jack’s pounding drums. We have to agree with Jason Lytle of indie rock band, Grandaddy when he says; “Tidal Wave ticks all the boxes for me…but above all, it sounds like it’s flying and I have a soft spot for songs that sound like they are flying.” Jason is just one of the well-known musicians praising Seadog! Matthew Caws of Nada Surf, David Crosby, and Simon Raymonde of Bella Union and Cocteau Twins also spoke highly of the duo. With a bright and uplifting chorus, soft vocals, sweet synths, and chime sound effects, this track makes you want to grab your friends and family and enjoy a chill time at the beach!
The music video is something so special. Filmed and edited by Chris Tomsett (Innerstrings) at Black Rock, Brighton, this funky and nostalgic music video takes the viewers back in time in a visually pleasing experience with cool special effects such as kaleidoscope and colorful patterns.

Musician, educator, and activist Marc 2Ray joins the Alchemicast: with Andy Reed talking about how your wordplay, delivery, timing, and cadence are your instrument as a hip-hop artist. Marc uses his music to educate and empower listeners about everyday issues such as social justice, inequality, drug abuse, and tracks like “1915” about the Armenian genocide (of which his grandfather is a survivor) are being used as an educational tool in high school and college curriculums. Marc discusses his songwriting and recording process and his extensive collaboration efforts. He discusses how 9:30 Club holds a special place in his heart through personal experiences with DJ Tommy B, and how his 2020 album, Fresh Air, transformed from being supported through live events to a more digital experience for fans.
