Seaming – Mermaid

Seaming conjures the ethereal. Her voice is beautiful, an instrument spanning multiple octaves. Her playful, surrealistic electronica/piano styled compositions spawn twisted images of fairy tale worlds. Haunting, intoxicating – a classically trained musician wrestling with a Bjork-esque flair for eccentricity and experimentalism. It’s effortlessly clever. Compelling. And unfailingly dramatic.

Mermaid spins the murderous tale of a sea princess with an amorous affection for the King’s son and the land above. Brimming with rich, enchanting, clockwork-like instrumentation and gorgeous operatic vocals, it makes you feel like you’re awake in someone else’s dream.
