Welsh bedroom-pop group SEAZOO formed in April 2013 and consisted of two humans and a charity shop teddy bear. SEAZOO self-recorded and released EP ‘Ken’ during the summer of 2013 gaining BBC and Amazing Radio plays. Masters like Huw Stephens on Radio 1 and Steve Lamacq on BBC 6Music championed their single ‘Dog Hotel’.
Think Gorky’s, SFA, Yo La Tengo and Pavement. All underpinned with the home recording ethic of Grandaddy. After playing with Circa Waves, Gulp and Crocodiles, SEAZOO appeared at a number of festivals this year, including Green Man, Festival No.6, Howlin’ Fling on Eigg, Focus Wales and Dim Swn in Cardiff.
2014 will end on a massive high with a Maida Vale session for the BBC. 2015 will see the blaster of a single ‘Panda Pains’ released in January, followed by an EP in March and the debut album later in the year. SEAZOO now consists of five proper humans. The teddy often stays at home, jaded by his short experience in the industry. He was shit anyway.
