Australian electronic trio Seekae have shared new single “Turbine Blue”, the first original music from the group in over two years. The track is out now on Future Classic and can be streamed below.
In a striking step beyond last album The Worry, the band explores new sonic territory to create their most confident, honest and direct work to date. The song was composed and recorded in Berlin and features 80’s and 90’s Korg synthesisers that provide a mid-tempo, drone-like progression, like a siren’s song, just as blissful and as it is agonising. Full of hope but laced with melancholia, “Turbine Blue” is a song written as a confession about the cyclical nature of love, departing and arriving, hurting and pleasing all in one act.

For the past few months, English-born Australian singer-songwriter Lisa Mitchell has been quietly working on her new album, scheduled for a late 2015 release. Meanwhile, Mitchell’s single “Wah Ha” has been given the remix treatment by Sydney electronic trio Seekae.
“Wah Ha” was originally released in September 2014 as a limited free download via Mitchell’s SoundCloud. It is the first track lifted from the 24-year-old artist’s forthcoming album – her third following on from 2009 debut Wonder and 2012’s Bless This Mess.

Sydney-based three piece Seekae have just signed to influential indie label Future Classic (home to the likes of Flume, Jagwar Ma, Chrome Sparks and more) and will be releasing a new album early next year, their very first with vocals. The first single off the album is “Another”, a restrained piece of electronica featuring sparse drums and layers of synths brewing under the surface.
The album is currently being mixed by David Wrench (Caribou, Bat For Lashes) and a the band have just unveiled a video to support “Another”. Filmed in Bolivia by Ian Pons Jewell, it is based on an ancient Bolivian custom/belief that burying someone under a building is a good omen. It’s dark, but very cool!
