What? Boppy, poppy, fuzzed-up indie. That’s a genre, right?
From where? Wrexham, north Wales.
What’s the story? Welsh wizards Seazoo are keeping it DIY (for now) but thanks to the nifty BBC Music Introducing Uploader, they’ve already had plenty of radio play on BBC Radio 1, BBC 6 Music and BBC Radio Wales, plus sessions in the bag for Marc Riley and BBC at Maida Vale Studios.
Citing influences like Yo La Tengo, Blur, Super Furry Animals and Grandaddy, the five-piece have been busy perfecting their sounds on the festival circuit, brightening up the likes of Green Man, Indietracks, Canadian Music Week, Festival No.6 and The Great Escape.
Self-recording their sounds between a decommissioned nuclear bunker and a spare room in their hometown, this is bedroom pop at its best: chock full of jaunty harmonies, wonky keys and melodic riffs to sink your teeth into.
With their debut album Trunks, mixed by Mike Collins (Girl Ray, Metronomy) due on 26 January, we can’t wait to hear more…
Sounds like? We’re saying Pavement meets H. Hawkline.
Predicted to? Hook us all in with their debut and win over this year’s festival crowds.
