Brighton based, Electronic band, Sea Bed recently released their track ‘Geneva’. It’s enchanting instrumentation and empathetic vocals almost send you into a trance.
We caught up with them to ask them a few details about this new release.
What was the inspiration behind your track?
Geneva is about deceit, deception and betrayal. It’s about the dangers of becoming co-dependent in love, and the vulnerability in the beginning to rely on someone, other than yourself, for happiness.
What did your songwriting process involve?
As with a lot of our songs it was inspired by the vibe of the chord progression which we played through our Arp Odyssey. From there we constructed the beat, wrote the lyrics and recorded any remaining melodies around a rough song progression we mapped out before going really heavy into the production of the track.
What things do you do differently to other bands?
Spend hours worrying about a clap sound
Can you describe your sound in three words?
Pastoral Techno Pop
Have you channelled any artist in particular on this track?
A touch of Moderat, sprinkling of Holly Herndon, pinch of New Order and a dash of Seal
What’s the best thing about studying at BIMM?
Networking networking networking
What’s the best bit of music advice you’ve been given?
Get good at Logic and drink black tea
Whats next for Sea Bed?
Our second EP “The Art Of Living” drops very soon on Four Thieves Records. We also have some great support slots and potential festival appearances coming up, with a huge one on November 10th supporting HAELOS at Heaven in London.
On top of that writing and writing and writing until the noises stop making sense.
