+Dome is 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 Tree’s 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.
+Dome is a more experimental record than its predecessor, but, being a Seekae lp, it retains the warm, immediate charms that have endeared the band to so many. From the opening jittery, precisely processed guitars of ‘Go’, to the glitch-pop of ‘Blood Bank’, to the droning strings of ‘Underling’ and the gorgeously spare closer ‘You’ll’, +Dome is the sound of a band unwilling — some might say unable — to stand still.
Deluxe version of the brilliant second record from Seekae.
MOJO MAGAZINE 4 STARS *– Electronic Album of the Month “sharp-edged, glacial, organic electronica”
*HERALD SUN “+Dome transcends everything before and everything after it.” LA TIMES EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE OF NEW SINGLE “SIR” “Their brand of electronic is Arcadian, full of gentle glitches and ethereal atmosphere” RESIDENT ADVISOR *4/5 “Equal parts rock, hip-hop and experimental, it’s one of the most interesting records of the year thus far.”
*ROLLING STONE “+Dome is a serpentine journey that will leave you feeling refreshed, not spent.“ THE FADER ‘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.’
*UNCUT Magazine *‘Opener “Go” is a psychotic merry-go-round of detuned guitars and cymbals.’
Seekae’s style shifts between ambient, glitch and hip hop, and surfs between the varying electronic sounds if Xela, Boards of Canada and Telefon Tel Aviv via the pop affability of Hot Chip. Somewhat appropriately seekae have dubbed their sound “ghetto ambient”.
FBI Album of the week and described by Rolling Stone as “an album thats as ambient and mezmerizing as an iced-over forest” – 4 STARS.
A strikingly assured collection of intricate, dynamic electronica, Seekae’s debut lp was rich in its detail and, at 73 minutes, ambitious in its scope, running through 8-bit electronica, buoyant pop, ambient wash and surging, noisier workouts. The album was met with near 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 their best Australian albums of the decade.
