seefeel || “faults”

london-based noisetronic outfit seefeel has been relatively silent since their hiatus in 1996. positioned somewhere between shoegaze and ambient electronics, the quartet has returned in 2011 with their first new material in nearly 14 years. a sung lullaby serves as the intro to “faults,” the standout track from their new self-titled lp. soon, steady percussion and a droning bass take hold, forcing the listener to sway as if entranced in a drug-induced haze. the lead almost lends itself to a dubstep formula of distorted wub-wubs, but never devolves to the lowly form of fratpop the genre has become. this is a track to blast through massive speakers – the primal pull of seefeel’s wilderness cannot be measured over headphones.

seefeel is out now on warp.
