Welsh psych-pop wizards Seazoo are Digging for victory
Location: Wrexham, Wales
FFO: Super Furry Animals, The Big Moon, Insecure Men
Fresh from supporting psychedelic punk rockers The Lovely Eggs on their UK tour, alongside sharing bills with Peace and IDLES in recent months, Welsh psych-pop maestros Seazoo‘s track ‘Dig’ further builds anticipation for their debut record, with the influences of acts including Grandaddy, Super Furry Animals and Yo La Tengo shining through once more. This latest effervescent track, concerning “a re-occurring dream that eventually slips into waking life”, sees the indie quintet showcase their trademark quirky tendencies with a fuzzy, wall of sound intro, driving rhythm, infectious vocals and more than their fair share of tasty guitar licks.

They dug up the garden, but I don’t think they found anything! I’d like to think the long repetitive outro to the song represents this process of repetition without conclusion”
