Seeress Return With "Holograms"

Seeress is so underrated. While they're definitely a part of the ongoing movement of American post-rock, they also have a slightly darker and heavier sound than their compatriots in that scene.

Last time I wrote about the ambient, heavy, and excellent Seeress, a band that straddles the lines between post-rock, doom, and post-metal, I mentioned our partnership and friendship with the excellent A Thousand Arms. This time around, I get to call your attention to Where Post Rock Dwells, run by a good friend of ours and trafficking in only the finest of delayed, evocative, and moody music. It's a YouTube channel that's been going on strong for years now and, if you're unfamiliar, getting acquainted with it via Seeress new single, "Hologram", and its accompanying video is as good a place to start as any.

Seeress is so underrated. While they're definitely a part of the ongoing movement of American post-rock, they also have a slightly darker and heavier sound than their compatriots in that scene. Add in the hauntingly beautiful and effective vocals that centerpiece this track and you have a beauty of a release, showcasing everything that makes this band so great. I especially adore the main guitar line that runs through the track, chopped up and distorted like something from Caspian, filled with its own personality and tone.

The video also works well to highlight these elements and shine a dark light on the emotional structure of the lyrics and themes of the track. Make sure to click through to the band's Bandcamp to keep up to date with them; there's a bright future ahead for this already excellent band.
