I Wonder by Seba Safe

Seba Safe, the musical persona of Galway’s Michael D’Alton, has been steadily making waves in the Irish music scene with his poignant songwriting and eclectic sound. His latest offering, “I Wonder,” is no exception and stands as a testament to his evolving artistry.

From the very first note, “I Wonder” captivates the listener with its haunting, dreamlike vocals. It’s a song that starts with a gentle embrace, lulling you into its narrative, only to surprise midway with a pop-infused beat that makes you want to move. This transition is not just a musical shift but a reflection of the song’s thematic depth. As Seba Safe himself mentions, the song is a culmination of diary entries spanning two years, touching upon everyday thoughts, fears, hopes, loss, and love. This duality in the song’s structure mirrors the complexities of human emotions and experiences.

The lyrics are deeply personal, and this raw honesty shines through, making it relatable to anyone who has ever introspected about life, love, and everything in between. The song’s introspective nature is further amplified by its place in the “Rainy” EP, which delves into themes from a time when the world was grappling with a global quarantine. While not directly about the pandemic, the songs, including “I Wonder,” serve as a reflection of Seba Safe’s personal journey during this tumultuous period.

The production quality of “I Wonder” is top-notch, thanks to the expertise of Duncan Mills. The song, like the rest of the EP, is a sonic journey that takes listeners through a spectrum of emotions, from melancholy to hope. The inclusion of Shea Tohill’s lead guitar moments adds another layer of depth, making the song truly special.

Seba Safe’s commitment to authenticity in his songwriting is evident in “I Wonder.” It’s a song that resonates, not just because of its catchy beats or beautiful vocals, but because of the genuine emotion behind every word.

Having already established himself as a promising talent with his debut EP “Map Runner,” and subsequent successes, Seba Safe continues to solidify his place in the music world. With accolades from renowned platforms and an ever-growing fan base, his trajectory is only upwards.

“I Wonder” is a reflection of Seba Safe’s journey, both as an individual and as an artist. As he continues to rise in the music scene, one can only anticipate what he will bring next. For now, we have “I Wonder” on repeat, and it’s safe to say, it’s a track that will linger in our playlists and hearts for a long time.
