Artist Spotlight: Sealings

Sometimes even when a band is in the most primitive stages of it's existence it can be obvious that they're going to be worth their salt. That's very much the case with British noisemakers Sealings. Currently a two-piece, the band are still looking to add a drummer to their ranks, and for now are filling the role with an iPod app. It sounds amateur in the extreme - and it kind of is - but even so they've managed to assemble some excellent music using such techniques. One tool which they evidently do have at their disposal is a distortion pedal, and that's what proves to be their main weapon. Their songs all have a solid melodic core, but that's engulfed by a swarm-like cloud of fuzz which makes them delicious and pulsating in equal measure. It's how you'd imagine a collaboration between Thurston Moore and Kevin Shields would pan out, with Steve Albini thrown into the mix for extra hostility.

Sound good? That's because it is! Check them out on their Soundcloud page
