Potent Indie-Rock Power

What do you get when you cross three jazz trained musicians and a super powered sound engineer?

SEABASS are an explosive outfit from Adelaide. Born from a once in a lifetime gig performing with Pussy Riot in 2019; Seabass combine their incredibly fine tuned instrumental skills with emotive and driven song writing to create a new brand of indie-rock for the ages.

Since the end of the world as a result of COVID-19 guitarist (and incredible musician, songwriter and sound engineer in his own right) Ryan Martin John and front fish Annie Siegmann have been working tirelessly to bring their debut EP “Always Kidding” to life. The outfit are completed by Flik Freeman (bass) and Kyrie Anderson (drums); who lay down unprecedented time feel (in these unprecedented times) and solid foundation for what is shaping up to be a very exciting record. The record features crowd favourites Fucked it Up and Not Friends.

The EP follows the release of singles Body Close and Brains. Seabass have performed alongside Yothu Yindi, Ecca Vandal at Adelaide Fringe 2019 and Grinspoon, Sneaky Sound System and The Superjesus at Superloop Adelaide 500 in 2020 (just to name a few…).

Four fish are better than one.
