Seekae from Australia came together in 2006, when primary school alumni Alex Cameron and George Nicholas, then fresh out of high school, met again after eight years by chance. Alex introduced George to his then-bandmate John Hassel, and the three, who had all been conducting bedroom experiments with electronic music, decided to start making noise together.
On the 25th March 2011, electronic trio Seekae shall delivered + Dome, the band’s second offering. 2008 saw the release of their debut album ‘The Sound of Trees Falling on People’ to critical acclaim. Rolling Stone described the record as “an album that’s as ambient and mesmerizing as an iced-over forest”, along with 5 star reviews, FBI radio crowned the record ‘one of Australia’s top ten albums of the decade’ and listeners also recognised the band at Sydney’s Music Arts and Culture Awards as Best Live Act.
Seekae spent an incredibly busy few years supporting the praised release, touring heavily with the likes of PVT, Broadcast, Cloud Control, Decoder Ring, Midnight Juggernauts and selling out their own headline nights.
Paying homage to the sound and textures of Tokyo, Berlin, Chicago and London, ‘ Dome’ blends live instrumentation with electronics and samples collected over two years of performing, touring and writing. It’s percussive, loud and exciting at times – reserved and laid back at others, but every track oozes a warm feeling that could only be described as Seekae. ‘The Sound Of Trees Falling On People’, first introduced Seekae’s mastery for creating intricate, beat-driven tunes, ‘+Dome’ is more than just a follow up, it’s a new beginning.
