Green Seagull — Simeon Brown / Belladonna
(Mega Dodo MEGA18, 2019, 7")

Simeon Brown / Belladonna Cover art

Brit neo-psych rockers Green Seagull released a new single on May 3 that is a taste of things to come on their forthcoming second album, to be released later this year. Both songs are so good that Green Seagull and Mega Dodo were reluctant to name an A and B side. So they are treating this release as mini LP, though it is in point of fact a 7-inch single. One side contains “Simeon Brown,” a cool 60s Brit psych pop music hall song very much like some of the late 60s Beatles songs. And on the flip side is “Belladonna,” a hard Hammond organ driven trippy psych tune. Take a moment to enjoy the video. Two very different songs, yet both wonderfully constructed and a joy to experience. If these two songs are a representative sample of their new album, we are definitely in for a treat later this year. If you cannot wait, be sure to grab one of these limited green vinyl singles, only 300 copies were pressed.
