Boomkat Product Review:
Tomorrow Today brings electronic pop with a real pedigree: Seeland is the duo made up by Tim Felton (formerly of Broadcast) and Plone's Billy Bainbridge, both of whom have spent their fair share of time with a synthesizer or two. The early Seeland material seems like a distant memory now, but finally the debut full-length arrives, having been announced by the quite wonderful 'Library'/'Call The Incredible' double A-side single (both tracks included here). The songs boast perfectly judged arrangements balancing modern Super Furries-style psych-pop with more extravagant retro sound designs. 'Hang On Lucifer' presents us with an early highlight, matching fuzztone lead guitars with a White Noise-like approach to blending electronics with infectious song crafting. A few tracks in, 'Captured' borrows in equal measure from '70s TV themes and the C86 sounds currently being revived across the indie spectrum. Underlining the album's depth, there's an element of Stereolab's incisive prog to 'Station Sky' while at the fluffier end of their repertoire 'Turnaround' goes for the jugular with some impeccable New Romantic bubblegum. On top of all this you still have the aforementioned single to refamiliarise yourself with, and of the two tracks 'Library' in particular feels like something rather special, combining ornamental oscillator interjections with chiming harpsichords redolent of Broadcast's skewed version of the '60s.
