“This is my way of honouring his memory and sharing the story with the world so others with similar struggles can relate and resonate. After 21 years of friendship, an unfortunate incident left my friend Jamo in critical care and sadly he passed on July 20th 2022. I was devastated by this loss and retreated from music for a few months. I actually thought that I’d give up on music, but some wise words from a mentor brought me back and I realised music was what would get me through this tragedy. Angel Eyes was my first composition after the accident and reignited my musical passions.” – SEETALI
Collaboration and community are at the forefront of SEETALI’s creation, ‘It’s Not You; It’s Me’ features contributions from 10 artists and vocalists, each track a standalone message and also part of the larger narrative. Out Friday 27 October, this debut album navigates the intimately woven introspections of
relationships and the consequent lessons of heartbreak, transporting to a wonderland awash with cinematic synths and electronic pop amongst the crisp production of beatmaker SEETALI. Including singles ‘Love You Blind’, ‘walked away’ – a track described by triple j’s Claire Mooney as ‘An endearing track that swells big emotion’, and home to the new single ‘Angel Eyes’, ‘It’s Not You; It’s Me’ paints an honest portrait of SEETALI’s relationship and endless wrestle with life’s emotions in love, loss, and grief.
