Earlier this year, Mark Van Hoen tweeted that he had heard some new Seefeel material, calling it “inspiring, amazing and worth waiting for.” And now, Warp Records has released the title track from Seefeel’s upcoming Faults EP, which will be released September 20. You can read all of the details, including information about their September 16 concert at London’s ICA, here.
As for the track itself, it’s one of the most abstract, kaleidoscopic songs the band has recorded, ever: Sarah Peacock’s abstracted vocals drift lazily over a shifting bed of clicks, beats, and booms while swells of guitar noise and electronic glitchery filter in and threaten to overwhelm everything else. Those expecting the more song-oriented structures of Quique may be a little disappointed, though Faults is a logical progression from that album’s dreamy soundscapes. Listen for yourself below.
