Based in Sydney, Australia, Seekae are made up of members George Nicholas, John Hassell and Alex Cameron. The trio formed in 2006 after a chance meeting and gained original notoriety on Sydney’s live circuit for their own brand of 8 bit electronica.
2008 saw the release of 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 Australian top ten albums of the decade’ and listeners also recognized the band at Sydney’s Music Arts and Culture Awards as Best Live Act. The album was a move away from their inceptive sound towards what has been described as skirt lifting, ball crushing Ghetto Ambience.
After an incredibly busy few years supporting the praised release, Seekae toured heavily, with the likes of PVT, Broadcast, Cloud Control, Decoder Ring, and Midnight Juggernauts including selling out their own headline nights.
The songwriting speaks for itself, but it is their attention to detail that makes Seekae such a unique and exciting live act to behold, once being described as ‘ an ambient feast of sonic wizardry’.
2011 holds something new for Seekae. George, John and Alex take +Dome to the stage with an impressive live show that boasts live drums, guitars , samplers and synthesizers. They are back to break more ground.
