Seekae

64925

‘It’s a surprise that this album of sharp-edged, glacial, organic electronica, hails from sunny Sydney, Australia.’
- Mojo Magazine, Electronic Album of the Month

‘Their brand of electronica is Arcadian, full of gentle glitches and ethereal atmosphere - like the sort of thing you’d play at an Arbor Day celebration.’
- LA Times

‘It’s a risky move to throw all your emotions at the wall like Seekae do when “Mingus” blooms into something gorgeous and open but they pull it off.’
- The Fader

‘Whether it’s the fact that Seekae are a band not a man or whether they’re just a bit better, we’re not sure, but +Dome glitches and crackles warmly with a far more human heart than most.’
- The Fly

SEEKAE’s debut album The Sounds of Trees Falling on People was met with unanimous acclaim, with Rolling Stone calling it ‘as ambient and mesmerizing as an iced-over forest’, and Sydney radio station FBI dubbing it one of the best Australian albums of the decade.

A strikingly assured collection of intricate, dynamic electronica, SEEKAE’s debut lp was rich in its detail, ambitious in its scope, running through 8-bit electronica, buoyant pop, ambient wash and surging, noisier workouts. With a live show to match, in 2009 Seekae won Best Live Act at Sydney’s Music Arts and Culture wards.

In 2011, SEEKAE released +Dome, an album that reflects the band’s far-reaching passions, from the 808-and bass-heavy club sounds of the new decade to the scenes and sounds of Tokyo, Berlin, Chicago and London.

+Dome achieved Mojo Magazine’s Album of the Month in the UK and saw SEEKAE nominated for four Australian Independent Music Awards: Best Independent Artist, Best Independent Album, Best Independent Electronic / Dance Album, Best Independent Electronic / Dance Single (winner). In 2011 Seekae took +Dome on the road, first in Australia and then Europe, Japan and North America where they played the iconic Low End Theory.

Returning to Australia in 2012, Seekae sold out the Sydney Opera House, with a performance featuring an 8-piece string ensemble. In 2013, the group won the audience-voted BEST LIVE ACT at Sydney radio station FBI Radio’s birthday event, a festival including outstanding Australian artists such as The Presets, Midnight Juggernauts, Hermitude and The Preachers.

Seekae’s third LP, due mid-2014, will exhibit the band’s latest expansions in sounds and performance. The track ‘Another’, the first single from the forthcoming LP, was release in 2013 by Future Classic.
