about

Sydney's SEIMS return with '3', the group's most ambitious and accomplished release to date.

'3' is based around the concept of the CMYK colour model ('Cyan,' 'Magenta,' and 'Yellow'), with each track on the record existing as its own micro-album, and when mixed together, creates 'Imperfect Black' - a collaboration with fellow Sydney musician Wartime Sweethearts. This track utilises the themes and riffs from the previous three tracks; an incredibly complex approach, but it is beautifully tied together by a romantic nuance that leads it to flow from track to track.

It's an impressive achievement, and makes the album essential listening for fans of The Physics House Band, The Mars Volta, Battles and Three Trapped Tigers.

'3' was mixed an recorded by Sydney's Tim Carr (We Lost the Sea, Matt Corby, Dr. G Yunupingu) and mastered by the legendary Jeff Lipton (Battles, Tyondai Braxton, City & Colour).
