Bio

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.

“[…] this project definitely meets the high calibre standard of these genres. This debut album flows so organically it borderlines perfection […] “ - Heavy Music Magazine

“[…] SEIMS’ takes us on a mystical journey of disjointed movements and sonic compositions that would surely bend Beethoven’s mind and tear it asunder. […] This is not just another CD – this is an overture of alternative music. 9.5/10” - Prog Zone Magazine

“Constant switch-ups in tone and tempo, flourishing with intricate instrumental patterns, present the mind of a musical genius.“ - math-rock.net

“This isn’t an assault on your eardrums like some other bands and there is a sparseness that is very comforting. There’s no question this is enjoyable and I’ll be listening again […]” - atpr.me

“There’s no risk of feeling bored; you’ll be captured by the pursuing rhythm. […] Enjoy SEIMS’s music journey, it deserves your attention.” - Echoes And Dust

yep this is great. nice balance of complex rhythms and simple driving guitar and synth lines.
