When listening to the Gothenburg based act Seabiscuit, you enter a strange little world of its own. The sounds captivate you and suck you in, and once you’re in – you want to stay there and hide forever.
You find yourself enjoying the forgotten soundtrack of a suggestive retro video game that never existed, combined with lo-fi guitars playing mystical adorable notes. The atmosphere created by the music tells you a story, and you can almost see it pan out in front of you. A distorted drum beat is blasting away in the horizon, and dreamy crisp chords are spreading out across the vivid coloured sky. You like it here. This could definitely be your home. Here comes the next song, and it’s a beautiful lonely guitar strumming away in the darkness, sounding as if it was played in another time. I’ll never leave this place, you think to yourself while closing your eyes tighter and tighter.
”This is one hell of a find here – a rolling beat, atmospheric guitar riffs aplenty and suspenseful build ups – Swedish Lo-Fi rock outfit Seabiscuit have tickled our fancy with their wonderfully impactful new single”
– The Sound Sniffer
”You are simply swept along, and wanting more.”
– Slavestate Magazine (album review: 4 out of 5)
”It’s like Mike Krol met Mogwai and one of the most unexpectedly pleasant surprises for me this year.”
– Värmlands Folkblad (almbum review: 4 out of 5 stars)
”Rousingly emphatic, this industrial vision traverses rock and electronica with a lazer like precision. Organic sounds, deceive you with electronic waves, selectively breeding emotions of light and dark within your soul. The Gothenburg based SEABISCUIT lives in a world of its own. A world that is strange and ominous indeed. The audio waves pull like an undertow, gripping and clawing, ever so intoxicating.”
– Come Here Floyd
The debut single ”End Up Dead” definitely makes you want to hear more from Seabiscuit.
”End Up Dead has some very delicious fuzz guitars what I like a lot. I also enjoyed when the hook came in. All in one it’s giving me a good feeling!”
