What inspired you to first start making music? And how did you come to be in your current incarnation? Or if you prefer, a brief bio about you.
Seabiscuit is a band with fluid members and one engineer/producer. Emerged from the possibility to make our own record dirt cheap.
Provide us with some info about your latest release…
Turbo: starts off with a phone recording of when I wrote the main riff for the song, you can hear my roommate showering in the background. Its inspired by the music of my youth, a lot of indie bands like Stereolab, Broadcast and Sparklehorse. It ends with a kid complaining about there not being any snow, that life if tough.
Which ones would you consider your main influences both music-wise & non-music-wise?
Boredom, procrastination and cheap music gear.
In what way does your sound differ from the rest genre-related artists/bands and why should we listen to your music? In other words, how would you describe your sound?
I’m aware of guitar based instrumental music not being a very exciting or new genre…But maybe it’s that kids show you rewatched as an adult. It’s familiar but soon you realize it’s quite disturbing, something is definitely off. It has a subtle eerie feeling you didn’t notice as a child.
Please name your 3 desert islands albums, movies & books…

Do you prefer studio or performing live and why?
Studio so far. We record our music in our own space where we explore sounds without worrying about expensive studio hours.
Is there any funny-unique story you would like to share with us, always in relation to your music ‘career’?
We don’t really have a music career. We all have full time jobs not related to music.
Which track of your own would you point out as the most unique and why?
It’s a song not yet released, called “less drums”. Under the distorted drums lies the best song on the album, it’s just hard to hear it.
Would you like to share with our readers your future plans?
Make more music, play more live.
Free question!!! (Ask yourself a question) you wish to answer and haven’t been given the opportunity…
