We're called Seams and we're four friends from the suburbs of Perth. We make experimental pop songs using guitars, synthesizers, drums, machines, theremins, violins and whatever else we can find in the back shed. Sometimes the results are pretty, sometimes ugly, sometimes both.

Seams have supported such national touring acts as Eagle And The Worm and Ouch My Face (VIC), as well as international bands including Best Coast (USA) and have shared festival bills with Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, Holy Fuck, The Go Team and more.

Their debut, home-recorded CD ‘Early,' attracted much airplay from Perth radio station RTRFM, later being discovered by Triple J whereupon presenter Steph Hughes described the title track as “a tropical food fight.” (Sept 7, 2010).

Since then Seams have released a string of singles such as 'Lyrebird' ("Now this is cool!" - Dom Alessio, JJJ) and most recently their first extender player, "Bad Prisms," enthusiastically received by fans, radio, reviewers and blogs alike.

Never content to settle into a category or sound, Seams continue to grow their sound in many pleasantly surprising directions. What comes next, nobody knows. Least of all the members of the band.

Lyrics

Bad Prisms

Written By: Lyndon Blue

White light
There's a million and one colours inside
In the ocean
There's a million and one places to hide
But I'm not like that, no
I'm a sun with a skeleton for a home

Wide eyes
There's a million and one mirrors inside
In between us
There's a million and one nautical miles
And as many below
And I'm a sun with a skeleton for a home

In the murky water
All the sons and daughters
These bad prisms is all that we've got
All that we've got
All that we've got

Sleep tight
You know colours are lies in the night
In the morning
You'll get up and be feeling alright
But it's not like that, no
You're a sun with a skeleton for a home

In the murky water
All the sons and daughters
These bad prisms is all that we've got
All that we've got
All that we've got

Deep Bones

Written By: Lyndon Blue

I carved my home into stone
I left my face among the bones
I'm an unblinking sentinel

A sunken tomb, catacomb
I lost my breath in a room
Found I was material

I was a child young and free
I grazed the skin on my knee
Skipping stones from île st-louis
I married young, had a son
I carried on, Port Mahon

(Deep bones, deep bones)

Bones at the bottom of the well, deep bones
In a cell of stone, bones at the bottom of the well
Deep bones in a cell of stone -
Bones at the bottom of the well, deep bones
In a cell of stone, these bones are all I own
These bones alone, at the bottom of the well
Deep bones in a cell of stone
These bones, these bones, deep bones

Blueberries

Written By: Lyndon Blue

Awoke in a room
All gold and blue
Where colours drip
From your fingertips

And crystals crawl
Down coral walls
And shadows creep
Up while you sleep

To fall behind
The coffee grind
Cracking lips
Elixir sips

And wrinkled skin
All caving in
Blueberry mind
Time to rewind

I'm not done, I'm not done
I wanna get, wanna get, wanna get young
Put the berries on my tongue
I wanna get, wanna get, wanna get young

I'm not done, I'm not done
I wanna get, wanna get, wanna get young
Put the berries on my tongue
I wanna get, wanna get, wanna get young
I'm not ooh-oo-ooh-ohh
