This month, Psychocandy Events presents Seefeel at Marie Antoinette, a mistifying experience sure to send everyone under gently sublimating waves of opiate goo and timeless dreams.
Seefeel are a British electronic/post-rock band, formed in the early 1990s by Mark Clifford (guitar, sequencing), Daren Seymour (bass), Justin Fletcher (drums), and Sarah Peacock (vocals and guitar). Stylistically situated at the intersection of dream pop/shoegaze and ambient techno/IDM, their first album ‘Quique’ was released in 1993 on the British independent label Too Pure.
The band signed with electronic label Warp Records in 1994, becoming the first act on the label to use guitars. They released a further album, ‘(CH-VOX)’, in 1996 on Rephlex. Following ‘(CH-VOX)’, Seefeel went on an extended hiatus from releasing new material. They performed their last live concert with the original line-up in October 1997, supported by Boards of Canada.
Following the reissue of ‘Quique’ in 2007, Clifford and Peacock relaunched Seefeel and were joined by Shigeru Ishihara (DJ Scotch Egg) on bass, and former Boredoms drummer Iida Kazuhisa (E-Da). In 2010, they released the ‘Faults’ EP (their first new recording in 14 years), followed shortly after by an eponymous LP in 2011.
