Biography

Seeland was formed by Tim Felton (ex Broadcast) and Billy Bainbridge (ex Plone) in the winter of 2004/05 amid the fallout from Birmingham’s ‘Retro Futurist Electronic scene’ – a group of musicians and artists inspired by space age pop, the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, Joe Meek and eccentric 60’s library music.

Having previously released two singles for Stereolab’s Duophonic imprint they spent the last few years carefully crafting the contemporary psychedelic album that is ‘Tomorrow Today’.

In the same way that Ariel Pink is able to create something totally fresh whilst still referencing the past, Seeland manage to mix their love of the three minute pop song with sounds and tones you might encounter in the work of Travelogue-era Human League, Can, Scott Walker and Syd Barrett’s Pink Floyd, to create something modern yet warm and unique.

Like the legendary producer Joe Meek, they blend abstract electronics with toe tapping pop tunes and like other psychedelic classics such as White Noise’s ‘An Electric Storm’ or The United States of America, Seeland have created an album that justifies repeated and deep listening.

Often a phrase or melody floats by reminding the listener of some lost musical gem and yet all the while the listener is immersed in Seeland’s strange but familiar soundworld.

    Waaaaa! Last.fm will only play "Wander" for me on Seeland Radio, recurring about every other song. It's a good thing I already bought all the other tracks so I can enjoy them at will -- and enjoy them I do, most thoroughly.

    It's nice to hear the Plone elements are still intact. Really looking forward to this release!

    Hm..did it occur to anyone that they may have named the band after the song titled "Seeland" by NEU! This by no means affecting their sound. If you like Broadcast and/or Plone then Seeland is something you'll like a lot.

    This is in no way Neu! Seeland is the band, and a darn fine band if I may add. Wonderful new album for 2009 - one of my favorites of the year.

    maybe i'm just being a retard, or i've downloaded the wrong record, but whilst this is pleasant it sounds absolutely nothing like neu! to me

    Sounds a bit like the unexpected reunion of I Start Counting to me.

    Indeed old 000001000000111! The essence of Plone can be felt along with some hints of Broadcast. Mighty fine. "Turn Around", "Five In The Morning" and "Hang On Lucifer" are stand out tracks on this one!

    absolutely brilliant album. Can really hear the influences of their previous bands peppered throughout.

    "Goodbye" is so good! Love the summer feeling. Reminds me of Montag and Au Revoir Simone with a touch of Neu! and Broadcast.

    Being a fan of Broadcast and Plone I was eager to hear this band and their debut album does not disappoint.

    Where can I find "wander"? I've looked on itunes, no luck there. I also looked on amazon. Which album is it on, does anyone know? I keep playing the video over and over to listen to the song.
