Eccentric collective, SEE? – featuring current/former members of Netherlands, Spacehog, Bangladeafy, Pseudo/Sentai, Cibo Matto, Seabrook Power Plant, Needle Driver, Die Trommel Fatale, Joan As Police Woman, Bassoon, Sugarlife, and many other acts – has debuted a new single from their impending Lighteninging On Your Thames, as the album nears release through Nefarious Industries in just over two weeks.
Within the “boundaries” of Lighteninging On Your Thames, listeners will be raked over the burnt remnants of reality as synthtwang, djentpop, progwank, and manglemetal fight to dominate the soundtrack. Decibel Magazine takes on the dispatch of the sixth and closing song from Lighteninging On Your Thames, the appropriately titled “SEE 6,” noting of its undeniably unique intensity, “Rest assured, when you click play, the sounds you hear aren’t your computer melting down — they’re the sounds of Nefarious Industries supergroup SEE?’s upcoming album, Lighteninging On Your Thames… In some sections, SEE? are funky and grooving. In others, they maintain the groove but go heavier. And some moments on ‘SEE 6’ sound like hearing colors while talking to a robot.”
The SEE? collective’s Timo Ellis (Netherlands, ex-Spacehog, etc.) issues of this new passage, “The final movement on the album finds the band and a slightly more subdued (read: exhausted) mood, having just had an extended, violent musical orgasm for the previous two hours straight; yet they still manage to pop once more, albeit in a more sullen and lumbering way. Also could be said to evoke elephants, ADHD, nausea, and an ambient refugee crisis; in other words, something for the whole family.”

Nefarious Industries will unleash SEE?‘s Lighteninging On Your Thames digitally on December 23rd. Stand by for additional updates to be issued preceding its release.
SEE? is a spontaneous supergroup featuring bassist Jon Ehlers (Bangladeafy, Pseudo/Sentai), guitarist Brandon Seabrook (Seabrook Power Plant, Needle Driver, Die Trommel Fatale), and drummer/vocalist/producer Timo Ellis (Netherlands, Cibo Matto, ex-Spacehog, Joan as Police Woman), with additional keyboards by Stuart Popejoy (Bassoon, Sugarlife). An exuberant and explosive testimony to their collective intensity, ferocious skill and wild imagination, Ellis recorded the basics for Lighteninging On Your Thames in an evening and then mercilessly tweaked it over the next few weeks at the Williamsburg Garage, after which it was mixed and mastered by Ron A. Shaffer at Atlantic West Studios, and finalized with art by Ellis. Simply put, this is an unremitting thrill salad of joy, angst, brains…and a massive fucking heart.
