Introducing: Seazoo

SeazooJust when it felt like fuzzy, lo-fi indie pop had fallen out of favour forever, North Wales quintet Seazoo are poised to deliver an album that will make you fall in love with the genre all over again.

Having released their debut EP in 2013, the band’s debut album is due this summer.

Lead track "Roy’s World” offers everything you could hope for from such an eclectic, energetic five-piece.

Featuring vocalist Ben Trow, Llinos Griffiths on keys, guitarist Dan West (Guitar), Mike Smith on bass and drummer Steffan Owens, the band have amassed considerable support since their early days as a bedroom-recording project back in 2013.

As well as regular plays from the likes of Huw Stevens and Lauren Laverne, the band has become staples on the Welsh festival circuit thanks to slots at Green Man, Festival No. 6, and Swn.

Add to this a coveted place on the 2014 BBC Cymru Wales Horizons music scheme, as one of 12 promising Welsh acts, and Seazoo’s pedigree and potential become clear.

The influences of fellow Welsh artists Super Furry Animals, as well as Granddaddy are obvious, but the band brings indisputable character and irreverence to their sound that marks them out as something just a little bit different.

Through Horizons the band built up their festival appearances and also had the opportunity to record at Maida Vale Studios. Now with a long-overdue album on its way and a burgeoning reputation in Wales and beyond, Seazoo’s trajectory looks to be firmly upwards.
