Seramic, also known under real name Marcus Foster, has gained a reputation as one of the most sought after musicians, mixing synth electronic beats with luxurious soul and pop sounds. Following on from releases ‘Greg’s Love’ and ‘I Got You’, which earned Seramic glowing reviews and recommendations from well-known publications including The Sunday Times and Mixmag, the next track from the upcoming EP I Got You is ‘Same Mistakes’.
The track is a great slice of emerging sub-genre ‘indie EDM’; songs fitting into this bracket combine classic styles, such as jazz infused sounds or Motown influences, with the modern day twist implemented through electronic beats and synth sounds. ‘Same Mistakes’ follows on from a bunch of undeniably good songs, such as NAO’s ‘Girlfriend’, in the same genre. Seramic’s track has this eloquent, smooth, soulful sound and will instantly appeal to listeners – slick rhythms with lyrics like, “Love I won’t wait for you / wasted all my time / I won’t wait for you my love” make it addictive from the first listen. There’s also vocal layering effects in the song which gives ‘Same Mistakes’ its blusey soulful feel, with rich lower pitched vocals harmonising with the velvety falsetto notes in the chorus.
A video has just been released for ‘Same Mistakes’, with a storyline sticking tightly to the story told in the track; full of wonderfully acted moments between a troubled couple, the vibrancy of a glowing city at night-time, and magestic pieces of dancing, the video is also a must watch.
Seramic was recently in the middle of a UK and European tour with delightful mellow acoustic duo Bear’s Den – the tour took place amongst a number of huge UK cities, and also entertained fans in Belgium and the Netherlands. Latitude, and the final Secret Garden Party are amongst the festivals Seramic has announced they will be appearing at.
‘Same Mistakes’ is available to listen to on Spotify at the link at the bottom of this page. In addition to this, you can listen to the rest of Seramic’s tracks on his Spotify artist page here.
