Seismic State - Single Review: Since We Last Spoke

19 Aug 2019 // A review by Axl Scott

Wellington is no stranger to the world of rock, and with a slick intro that captivates you from the beginning, Seismic State's new single Since We Last Spoke is nothing short of exceptional.

The catchy lyrics and outstanding instrumentals make this one tune that I could listen to over and over again. I constantly found something new in each playback which kept it lively and interesting. I believe Since We Last Spoke could easily become a fan favourite, especially when performed live.

Indicative of the likes of other local Wellington acts Merrin and Curlys Jewels, the vocals in this song are absolutely stunning and Seismic State wouldn't be out of place supporting some of the larger acts that NZ has on offer.

I'm definitely looking forward to hearing more from Seismic State, they have a bright future ahead of them.

If you’re in Wellington on the 20th September, you can check them out at Caroline. All the details can be found here.

About Seismic State

Formed in early 2018 by former members of Auckland band Dirty Riot; Sai Soe (guitar) and Liam Wright (bass) were joined by Matthijs van Dijk (drums) and Nicole Hardie (vocals & guitar) and they immediately got to work writing and gigging in and around Wellington.

Their style mixes rock with elements of funk, progressive and alternative as they combine riff-oriented guitar with melodic basslines and driving drum rhythms forming a foundation for creative vocal melodies and thought-provoking lyrics. The result is an accessible and sonically pleasing brand of rock music.

Seismic; Adjective, of enormous proportions or effect.

Wellington four-piece band Seismic State have just released their first EP State of Things, and if this is what they sound like, they have a big and bright future ahead of them. State of Things is an outstanding four-track EP, with each and every song giving a little bit more oomph than the previous track.

Villainy @ San Fran, Wellington - 20/07/2019
22 Jul 2019 // by Axl Scott
The night was Saturday, 20th July and a crowd was lined up ready to enter San Fran for a night of their lives, because none other than New Zealand rock legends, Villainy, were about to set the roof on fire! Opening with Raised In The Dark, the crowd was full of energy and it was quickly proven that having Raised In The Dark as the first song of the night was a very wise choice!
