Located in the “depth-y”, character rich city/suburbs of south London. seyr are artists renowned for their ambiguity and of course, their music. Having taken what can’t be much more defined as a hiatus. They’re now back from what they call themselves, with a new EP titled ‘One of Very Few’, the debut release on their newly launched label “Glass Ivy” in Collaboration with Back To Future sounds.
“Press play to seyr. A s/llness in momentary feeling. A connec/on that is tangible within our consciousness “
The band detail the EP: “We’ve been away for a bit. We didn’t realise how life can just creep up on you, and fade out your plans or dreams when least expected. Call it naïvety. But I think inside, we’re all still, and always will be, the little kid we were when we were first brought into this world. We’ve come to realise the power of ideals, and how other ideals can intercept and disrupt your own. The idea of what we ‘should be’ doing, skewing the vision of what we want to do. Following your own vision can be a hard road to go down, filled with criticism, and doubt. I think we see why people feel that way. But it’s a road that is pathless to us.”
They go on to add: “We still feel lost sometimes, and I think we always will. But instead of trying to find ourselves maybe we should be looking at what we are now. Seeing things come and go, watching things take their course. Making room for the next thought. For the next idea. For the next version of ourselves. The time away has given us space to think about where we want to go. We have been kept alive by the non blood related family around us. More so by the bond we have between us as seyr.”
Next for seyr:
Time away has given head space for more. Expect more content and follow ups from this years release such as new singles, a cover EP, and a concept EP, involving never used before instrumentation. Live gigs will be less frequent but more encompassing of the audience, the music and it’s relationship with other artists and art forms. These events will be presented by seyr’s newly launched label, “Glass Ivy”.
“I love it when you call out like that, I believe that I’m going to meet my love… call out… call out…People love”
‘Gorgeous, glistening synth lines crackling into fractured electronics. Buoyed by a soulful vocal, Seyr are reminiscent of Burial’s earlier work or even Mount Kimbie’s more vocal-led produc/ons.” – Clash Magazine
‘Seemingly emerging from the darkness of the noir, quality electronic /nted lo fi & beau/fully soulful, unrestrained vocals emerge amidst the purring composi/on’- Line Of Best Fit
“Whether you get lost in airy vocals or rhythmic drum work, Seyr prove they’re a force to be reckoned with” – Earmilk.
