Seachange are a sextet hailing from Nottingham. This means they have the triple distinction of being the first Nottingham band signed to Matador, the first 6 piece and the first English signing to the label since 1998. None of which is particularly interesting. The notable bits however, are as follows : through their past couple years of playing up and down the UK, Seachange have established themselves as a deadly live proposition. I know you hear that all the time. So-and-so on the Baylor basketball team is "a deadly live proposition". The guy from Burzum is "a killer". And they are, literally. Seachange, however, are only murderous in the musical sense. Some of us are old and lucky enough to remember seeing bands like Sonic Youth and Trail Of Dead in front of single digit audiences and we'll swear on a stack of T&E receipts that Seachange aren't merely adept at a crazy melange of the anthemic & hypnotic ; there are some brilliant songs happening inside the tornado. And the end results are nothing short of inspirational.
