On the line between excitement and disenchantment.
Seatbelts began life in late 2017. The name was coined when James Madden and Ryan Murphy pondered what 'The Beatles' would spell out backwards over an intoxicated phone call. After a few garbled reverse attempts, a comprehensible word arrived: 'Seatbelts'. “The connotations around seat belts fitted so well with our current technology fried brains; the sense of feeling restricted to a screen and strapped into a life that has become pretty automated. So we went with that.” says James.
Seatbelts would like to see what they can do live with the project and have fun, evolve, grow, learn etc with a cast of friends and musicians getting involved.
