Review: "Made of Love" - Seafret

“Made Of Love” is the heartfelt new single from Seafret’s latest album, Wonderland. The song is inspired by more than one thing in the band’s life. However, lead singer, Jack Sedman, allows this song to take on a deeper meaning in relation to the passing of his beloved grandmother. Regarding the song, Sedman has said, “When I listen to it, it reminds me of a close family, and of big starry skies.” The song details a type of love that is full of comfort and warmth, even on the darkest winter nights. Although the lyrics indicate more of a romantic relationship, the song can be applied to any type of love: romantic, familial, and platonic. In the chorus, he sings, “I'm sure that I'm feelin' more than a feelin'// I hope you feel the same way too// I'm only being all I can be// And you know it's all because of you // When the stars come out to shine, I think of you here by my side// I never realized that it was written in the sky.” This all leads into the post-chorus that contains the hook: “We’re made of love// We’re made of love.” These lyrics reveal this beautiful romance that was written in the stars. When they look into the beautiful starry night, they think of the person they cherish. Our world is vast, and the universe is bigger. Through all of the trials and tribulations of life, they were brought together by some happenstance. Their love was destined to bloom. The sweet, sentimental lyrics throughout “Made Of Love” flawlessly expresses this notion and provides the picture-perfect love song for any occasion.

“Made Of Love” consists of a soothing production that evokes feelings of serenity and comfort within the listener. The light piano kicks off the song with soft synth sound effects in the background. On the piano, a high note is played to keep the beat as the track continues into the verse. When the chorus begins, the tempo increases as Sedman hits flawless falsettos that perfectly blend with the high notes on the piano. In the background, the airy synth waves continue to provide an ethereal atmosphere to the track. In the second verse, the original production found in the beginning returns with the addition of the soft, steady drums. Furthermore, an angelic guitar strums away in the background, providing an extra level to the whimsical production. The second chorus brings back the previous production, while incorporating the new inclusion of the drums and guitar, highlighting the complex dynamic of the track. The song reaches the emotional peak in the bridge. The tempo increases as the guitar and drums become more prominent. Sedman’s compelling vocals leads the listener through the sentimental message, emphasizing the vulnerability the band is showcasing. This point in the song feels like the cinematic climax of a heart wrenching movie, as this passionate scene plays in the listener’s mind. It is the moment in a film when the main protagonist is about to get the girl; the hero is about to save the day; the doctor is about to bring someone back to life. The audience shakes in anticipation as they wait to see how the story unfolds. This is the exact feeling the band evokes in their listeners when they listen to “Made Of Love.” After the bridge, the song returns to the mellow production for the final chorus, providing a calming conclusion to the story, before the track fades out. Seafret effortlessly captivates listeners with the passionate storytelling in “Made Of Love,” proving once again that they are an undeniable force to be reckoned with within the music industry.
