SEIMS // 3 - LTD. TRANSLUCENT CLEAR VINYL (LP)
Translucent clear vinyl housed in a glossy, double gatefold. Limited to 250 copies worldwide.
RELEASE DATE: 26/10/2017
Australia's premier math rock act SEIMS announce their triumphant return with a thunderous new single, 'Cyan' and their third album - 3.
'Cyan' is brutal return to form from the Sydney outfit - opening with stabbing punk guitar chords, before a dump truck load of bass is dropped into the mix, and their signature brand of controlled chaos throttles you for the next 8 mins.
It's a brilliant next step in the evolution of a band that began as the brainchild of Sydney multi- instrumentalist Simeon Bartholomew, and has turned into one of the country's most explorational and formidable outfits.
As ever with the music of SEIMS, there's much more going on in its construction that what merely appears on the surface. A grandiose record in its scope, 3 is thematically based around the CMYK colour model ('Cyan,' 'Magenta,' and 'Yellow'), each track on the record existing as its own micro-album, and when mixed together, creates 'Imperfect Black' - a collaboration with fellow Sydney musician Wartime Sweethearts, who for the first time brings vocals to SEIMS. This track utilises the themes and riffs from the previous three tracks; an incredibly complex approach, but it is beautifully tied together by a romantic nuance that leads it to flow from track to track.
3 is released on Bird's Robe Records (sleepmakeswaves, The Red Paintings) and Art As Catharsis (We Lost The Sea, Adrift For Days) was recorded and mixed by Sydney's Tim Carr (We Lost the Sea / Matt Corby / Dr. G Yunupingu) and mastered by the legendary Jeff Lipton (Battles / Tyondai Braxton / City & Colour).
