Seekae // In Short

seekae

There are few surer ways to peak our interest in a release than to see the Future Classics (home to the likes of Flight Facilities) label attached to it. So the return of Seekae under their banner was always going to be big news, and what an evolution it is from their previous output. ‘The Worry’ is gloriously unclassifiable; ‘Test And Recognise’, decidedly lysergic, threatens to drop you in a late 80s field around M25 outskirts, but instead crawls in your brain and taps frazzling notes out behind your eyes. ‘The Boys’, meanwhile sounds like ‘Maxinquaye’-era Tricky trying to freak The xx out. And what’s not to like about that? Elsewhere there’s comfort and respite to be found in gentler guitar-fuelled revery. Suffice to say, it’s a dizzying treat and promises to form a live show that’s going to bounce our heads around as much as it is our feet – in the best possible way.

We caught up with the group’s John Hassell to get an insight into the Seekae mindset, and found acoustic Tiesto, Spanish footballers and Eddie Murphy in a fat suit.
