Instead of answering the question for Christmas Un-Wrapped the “normal” way, brothers Aaron and Ryan Morgan of Seabird decided to go high-tech—they recorded their answers. Since a little effort goes a long way with Backseat Writer, Seabird has been given the distinct honor of ushering in Christmas with the final unwrapping of 2009.
Seabird’s sophomore album, Rocks Into Rivers, just hit shelves and digital retailers on Dec. 15, which makes it a perfect last-minute gift or way to burn some of that Christmas cash from grandma. As a special Christmas present from Seabird to all of you, you can download “Don’t You Know You’re Beautiful” from Rocks Into Rivers here (this will take you to an external link).
You can also pick up Seabird’s Silent Night EP which offers the band’s unique versions of “Silent Night” and “Joy to the World.”
Random aside: Methinks that Aaron is wearing the same shirt as in this photograph I snapped of him at Revelation Generation—what do you guys think? Don’t you love to know that artists are real people who wear their clothes more than once?
Seabird answered each question with a separate video, explanations of the clips are underneath the “watch” boxes. I hope you enjoy these as much as I do. Seabird made Backseat Writer’s Christmas.
Aaron Morgan, lead singer of Seabird, answers BSW’s question, “Tell me why your sophomore album, Rock Into Rivers, would make the perfect gift for music fans.” Notice the appearance of random guy in the window on the right.
Ryan Morgan guitarist for Seabird answers BSW’s question, “Did you score any good deals on Black Friday? Is it a day of great deals or terrifying chaos?” And then his brother Aaron interrupts. Also, there’s a special visitor in the window on the right.
Ryan answers BSW’s question, “Did you believe in Santa Claus as a child? How did you find out he wasn’t real?” Apparently, Ryan remained a Santa devotee until his late teens.
Aaron tells a spirited anecdote when asked by BSW to “Describe a Christmas catastrophe.”
Ryan answers BSW’s question, “What’s your fave Christmas song/Christmas movie or cartoon/Christmas cookie?” I get the idea that his brother, Aaron, likes A CHRISTMAS STORY.
Brothers Aaron and Ryan share their New Year’s resolutions and perform their own version of “Yo Ho Ho” from DC Talk. I think they should stick to their own songs. Merry Christmas!
