2011 was an exceptional year for Seekae. +Dome was released across the US, UK, Australian & Japan, sold out tours of Australia and extensive international touring, garnering the attention of many new fans and followers the world over.
In the first of many 2012 developments the band are excited to announce the release of their +Dome Deluxe Edition.
+Dome showcased a band laboring over every sound and song with meticulous detail, from sub bass heavy rollers to intricate guitar riddled interludes, Seekae displayed their developed palate through a long player that was rhythm orientated and at the same time self-reflecting.
In March 2012, the record will be re-released by Rice Is Nice & Popfrenzy Records in Aus/UK/US with 3 bonus tracks, single ‘Sir’ which premiered on the LA TIMES to rave reviews and the tracks ‘Altise Lament’ and ‘Face Facts’ which were both featured on the Japan only version of +Dome released through P-Vine Records.
The US will see a special digital only mini EP consisting of ‘Sir’, ‘Face Facts’ and ‘Altise Lament’.
In addition to the release we have a clip filmed and directed by Dean Lever documenting Seekae’s 2011 tour of Japan. Dean’s photos also fill the pages of the ‘+Dome Deluxe Edition’ Booklet. You can check out the film here.
We are excited to bring you this special limited deluxe edition and look forward to another engaging year for Seekae.
Out March 23 on Rice Is Nice / Popfrenzy Records.

MOJO Magazine ★★★★ Electronic Album of the Month
“sharp-edged, glacial, organic electronica”
“+DOME transcends everything before and everything after it.”
LA TIMES EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE OF NEW SINGLE “SIR”
“Their brand of electronic is Arcadian, full of gentle glitches and ethereal atmosphere”
RESIDENT ADVISOR ★★★★/5
“Equal parts rock, hip-hop and experimental, it’s one of the most interesting records of the year thus far.”
“+DOME is a serpentine journey that will leave you feeling refreshed, not spent.“
‘It’s a risky move to throw all your emotions at the wall like Seekae do when “Mingus” blooms into
something gorgeous and open, but they pull it off.’
THE BRAG ★★★★
‘The true beauty in their sound is found in its resplendent intimacy and careful detail.
‘Opener “Go” is a pshychotic merry-go-round of detuned guitars and cymbals.’
LA MUSIC BLOG
‘Every song on +DOME is an adventure… The trio from Down Under took me up over the Sepulveda Pass every day this past week in a magical daze.’
THE FLY ★★★★
“Whether it’s the fact that Seekae are a band not a man or whether they’re just a bit better, we’re not sure, but ‘+DOME’ glitches and crackles warmly with a far more human heart than most.”

Top Ten Avante Garde Releases of 2011
‘Seekae do for ambient Electronica what Mylo’s Destroy Rock & Roll did for Dance…’
‘+DOME depicts a far more ambitious vision of the future than any other Australian act has ever attempted…’
‘+DOME grows stronger with every listen, and its creators should be applauded for attempting such an ambitious record – and lauded for succeeding in pulling it off.’
‘From upbeat tracks with house pianos and organs, to choppy, industrial electronic sounds, Seekae’s adventurous production is boundary-pushing and unconventional.’
‘+DOME is a lot of things at once; from drone to click-step, synth chug to thug hip hop and soundtrack epic…but the real magic is in the way they tackle every electronic part with the same verve as they do the organic instrumentation.
‘All in all, an absolutely lush record. 8.5/10.’
