Seasurfer is from Hamburg, Germany addicted to creating their very own sound out of tons of reverb, delay, and fuzz. They don’t sound like your typical German band, and they release their darker dreampop on the US label, Saint Marie. Bandleader Dirk Knight was in the so called “Heavenly Voices” scene with his former band Dark Orange on the German cult-label HYPERIUM in the 90’s, working with guys like Robin Guthrie from the Cocteau Twins.
Compared to DARK ORANGE, Seasurfer is noisier (in a good way), and their debut-album “Dive In”, released in 2014 on Saint Marie, caused a stir in the shoegaze scene all around the world. Their 2nd album, 2017’s “Under the milky way… who cares”, also on Saint Marie, is yet another piece of groundbreaking shoegaze. The band supported the record with several club and festival shows in Germany that same year.
The EP “Vampires“, due in 2018 on Saint Marie, is a dark pop gem using guitars, synthesizers, tons of effect pedals, and vocals from new singer Apolonia. On bass, you find longtime friend of Dirk, Steven Burrows, former bass player of “And Also The Trees” from the UK.
At the moment, Dirk is working with Kirlian Camera singer, Elena Alice Fossi from Italy/USA to release a two track single, also out in 2018 on Saint Marie.
