"The Pussy Rock Monologues"

When I first saw psychedelic punk-rock band Seasick play at Sin-é, I was hypnotized. Dressed in a sailor outfit, 26-year-old Persian-Latvian lead singer Jasmine Golestaneh sang a song called "Octopus" in a lulling, spooky voice, swinging trance-like as she declared, "Every day I am getting better/So they say I am getting better." Meanwhile, 20-year-old drummer prodigy Sam Levin and 26-year-old keyboard player Geoff Lee harmonized in the mangled sea. For once I thought I wouldn't mind being seasick and nauseated, marooned with no Dramamine in the midst of such magnetic maritime dizziness. It was such an explosive and intense experience that the few times I managed to break the spell, I noticed everyone else in the audience—a mix of surprised Lower East Side bar habituals and a hip-looking international crowd from Britain and France—was equally haunted. - The Village Voice

Bio

Seasick is the brain-child of Persian/Latvian Jasmine Golestaneh. Tired of singing songs to herself in dirty bedrooms, one day Jasmine took a train to the seaside and asked the ocean for guidance. As she stared into the placid dark waters, a voice loomed over her head. That was the voice of Geoffrey Lee, “yeah!”, he said with a certain kind of zeal, and a golden keyboard rose from the sea foam. Jasmine was delighted, and the pair frolicked with sounds in messy bedrooms from dusk ‘till dawn, and dusk again. Then one day they heard a nasty rattle from the bathroom sink. It was unremitting! The banging was clanging until they could no longer hear themselves drink. Finally Jasmine stuck her head down the drain pipe, only to find Sam Levin flogging a drum so hard that the whole building broke out in a flood. It was then a trinity formed, and in those treacherous, sewage infested waters, Seasick was born.
