Watch Dear Seattle's Solo Acoustic Version of 'Afterthought'


Dear Seattle vocalist Brae Fisher stopped by the Rolling Stone office recently to play "Afterthought", from the Sydney band's 2017 self-titled EP. Armed only with an acoustic guitar and a loop pedal, Fisher delivers an emotive version of the EP's usually belting closer.

Today the band also announce they've just inked a record deal with new label Domestic La La, co-owned by Violent Soho's James Tidswell. On the signing, Fisher says Domestic La La is "nothing like any other label I have heard of. The numerous and lengthy chats I've had with Tids have got me seriously convinced this is something special."

Fisher also explains that there was an unusual line-item in the contract, with Dear Seattle stipulating "Tids had to smash 750ml of VB through a beer bong, and he did it like a champion. If that's not family, I don't know what is."

For Tidswell, he says his "jaw dropped" when he first heard Dear Seattle's EP. He's made the first order of business since signing the band to re-issue that EP on vinyl, with pre-orders for the release — expecting to ship in January — available now.
