Seekae – Turbine Blue
Australian electronic trio Seekae today share ‘Turbine Blue’, the first new release from the group since 2014. The track premiered overnight via Triple J, and can be heard below:
In a striking step beyond last album ‘The Worry’, the band explore new sonic territory with ‘Turbine Blue’, to create their most confident, honest and direct work to date. Distinctively Seekae, the track is original in sound and risk-taking in its production. The song was composed and recorded in Berlin’s Funkhaus Studio – the vocal was delivered after eating a pizza microwaved at a petrol station, carried back to the studio through the rain.
Through 80’s and 90’s Korg synthesisers, ‘Turbine Blue’ provides a mid-tempo, melancholic, drone-like progression that serves to uplift in the face of isolation and loneliness – a Seekae staple. A siren’s tune, ‘Turbine Blue’ moves towards something blissful and agonising, like the cyclical nature of love, departing and arriving, hurting and pleasing all in one act. ‘Turbine Blue’ is a confessionary love song. Full of hope but laced with the sheer dizzying heights of the risks involved in a confession.
‘Turbine Blue’ is out now on Future Classic.
