Unearthed artists we like
What was once intended as a one-man living room side-project has now evolved into a prominent powerhouse math-rock quartet, soon to launch their second album, aptly-titled "II".
After releasing the debut self-titled album in 2012, SEIMS was instantly noticed and praised for its lush soundscapes and rich textures; and originality in composition. With strong influences from Adebisi Shank, …And So I Watch You From Afar, and Battles; it immediately drew fans from both the math-rock and post-rock worlds. On record, the albums are all recorded and performed by their unstoppable bass player, and live, accompanied by the ridiculously skilled and multi-talented members of Shanghai, Fat Guy Wears Mystic Wolf Shirt, and The Lockhearts.
