- The Worry by Seekae
6/10 Clinton Staff review, 11 September 2014
I liked the recent remix EP from this Australian/UK group of electronic boffins but the second track on this, their third album, ‘Another’ makes me wonder what I got excited about. This is a standard electronica/bland vocal coagulation as previously produced by SBTRKT and (at their worst) Darkstar. So far, so dull. Leaping out of the blocks as if there’s a point to prove though is ‘Hands’ which has a nice lively production style marrying squelshy synths and dancefloor friendly beats with twangy guitars, the resulting melange not far away from Mount Kimbie.
Although there are similarities with the London duo’s last album particularly in the use of vocals (previous albums have been vocal-less), this is a sleeker affair. Less grainy, less ‘underground’ but by ‘Test and Recognise’ they hit their stride with bleepy, housey rhythms and scattered vocals with comes together beautifully for the last few minutes. I’m reminded of the bloop and weep of the DVA album. Lively and exciting. Nail on head. ‘Boys’ heads a littler into The XX territory, ‘The Worry’ starts grainy but soon develops into the kind of palatable room fillers produced by Disclosure.
Its a commercial album, exemplified on ‘Further’ which is straightforward chart-friendly electronic pop with a catchy chorus and what sounds like a saxophone and a flute. From the previous remix 12” I expected something darker and mysterious but its light and fluffy. A confident and polished album of electronic house and techno influenced pop music that sporadically delivers the goods.
