Claire catches up with Seekae before they perform at Homebake, where they talk about their album, recording in the UK, their live shows and much more....

Seekae is a Sydney gem. A diamond, a ruby... Look, take your pick of expensive stone, and come up with your own appraising metaphor. Their ability to develop introspective narratives from warped electronica throws them into an alternate universe, as their contemporaries gaze from afar.
