Seekae today release the video for their striking new single, ‘Turbine Blue’.
Directed by Kris Moyes, the video follows seven figures along the canals of sixth street. This was the last video to be shot under the iconic bridge, made famous by classic films such as Grease and Terminator 2, before it was officially closed and demolished. Watch ‘Turbine Blue‘ below:
‘Turbine Blue‘ is out now via Future Classic.
LOVE FOR TURBINE BLUE
“Bold and original, as has been the path the rest of Seekae’s material has followed, ‘Turbine Blue’ matches the melancholic with a hopeful mid-tempo lift.”
The AU Review
“Aussie trio Seekae have just dropped their first new single in over two-years and boy has it been worth the wait.”
“Awash with an otherworldly energy, the lulling electronic pop anthem is marked by gleaming ’80s and ’90s Korg synthesisers, shuffling beats and typically pensive melodies from frontman Alex Cameron. Cameron’s shadowy vocal spins a frank tale of cyclical love, pining over the ups and downs of intimacy with disarming sincerity.”
“Featuring Alex on vocals, ‘Turbine Blue’ showcases some pretty lush vintage synth action setting the mood for a down-and-out love song. It’s intimate with a hint of wryness, bolstered by an embrace of conventional pop song-craft.”
“While the downtempo pace is nothing new for the band, overall there’s a softness, an openness and vulnerability that feels different…the result is damn beautiful.”
“The track is slow-paced, hopefully melancholic ballad the features catchy crooning over a layered instrumental.”
“A absolute monster here from Seekae. From the gentle yet perplexing and twisted egg shaker/afuche-cabasa sounding rhythm bed to the heartfelt lyrics and melody, this one has hit us for six.”
I Heard A Whisper
“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.”
“Melancholically beautiful in a way only Seekae know, it’s a goddamn love song and it is wonderful…This is stunning, welcome back Seekae.”
“Turbine Blue” is a melodic R’n’B drifter than lands somewhere between suggestive seduction and a ballad of solitude, with the notable influence of member Alex Cameron’s charmingly cheesy solo work.”
