Having only been a band for the better part of a year and a half, …
Is punchy, indie-rock your vibe? Do you spin Ali Barter, The Preatures or Tegan and Sara on the regular?

If you answered yes to either of those questions, you’ll want to wrap your ears around Always Kidding, the debut EP from Adelaide’s SEABASS.
The band formed just a few years ago, but you wouldn’t guess it from listening to the EP. With a lineup featuring three jazz-trained musicians and one super-powered sound engineer, SEABASS has shown off their insane skill, proving themselves to be ones to watch.
Serving up a hearty dose of nostalgic, indie-rock, Always Kidding would be right at home in a late 90’s coming-of-age flick.
Always Kidding was recorded and produced by the band themselves and was thematically inspired by topics like relationships and climate issues. It’s the soundscape that really makes the EP shine though. Serving up a hearty dose of nostalgic, indie-rock, Always Kidding would be right at home in a late 90’s coming-of-age flick. Our standout tracks are Right Fit, Fucked It Up and Wolves II, but the EP covers all bases and truly does have a bit of something for everyone. Indie hooks, psychedelic riffs and emotive lyricism are all on offer here, and it all makes for one tasty soundscape.
SEABASS has thrown the old adage of there’s plenty of fish in the sea out the window. Always Kidding proves them to be a wholly unique unit, with plenty to offer. With a debut this good, it seems certain that total domination will follow—give us more, please!
