Seth Frightening

Day 5 of May Month Of Madness – celebrating(?) NZ Music Month with a daily journey into the underbelly of (mostly) unknown New Zealand music – is “Deliver” from enigmatic folk-ghoul Seth Frigthening.

Seth, or Sean Kelly as he is known in daylight, has plied his peculiar style of damaged folk for five years now and there’s an impressive back catalogue on the Seth Frightening Bandcamp page. The first album “The Prince And His Madness” is a wonderful starting point.

Progressive releases have become darker, less fanciful, but adding layers of creepy spectral depth and experimentation. Beautiful, strange & often disturbing; that’s Seth Frightening.
