Seekae have returned with their first new tune in two long years, a melancholic stomper dubbed Turbine Blue.
The Sydney electronic krew traverse new sonic territory on the mid-tempo, drone-like track, which is powered by ’80s and ’90s Korg synths and somehow manages to depress and uplift you at the same time.
Recorded in Berlin’s Funkhaus Studio, the song’s vocals were reportedly delivered “after eating a pizza microwaved at a petrol station and carried back to the studio through the rain”, which may be the secret behind its unique sound.
The group has described it as “a confessionary love song, full of hope but laced with the sheer dizzying heights of the risks involved in a confession”.
So there you go, hope your ears are lubed and ready.
No word yet as to whether the tune might be part of some forthcoming bigger release (like, say, an EP or an album) but we’ll keep you posted.
