Newcastle soul-tronic duo BOO Seeka are back! After a year of non-stop touring, and several months working away in the studio, the duo revealed their new single ‘Rush’ in January. The first taste of what will be their second album (the follow up to 2017’s ‘Never Too Soon’) due later this year.
Known for their smooth vocals and pulsating electro sounds, blended with spacey synth layered on top of rolling hip hop grooves and beats, new single ‘Rush’ doesn’t disappoint. The track flows like a cool river, yet buzzes with energy sizzling like a neon on the Miami strip.
Since their inception in 2015, BOO Seeka have accumulated over 40 million Spotify streams and dominated national airwaves with their previous singles ‘Oh My’, ‘Deception Bay’ and (through Sureshaker and Warner Music Australia). Working with producer and long-time collaborator, Ian Pritchett, ‘Never Too Soon’ placed #1 on the Australian iTunes Album Charts on the day of release, was Triple J Feature Album, and debuted at #8 on the first week ARIA Album Charts and led to a series of sold out tours and showcases around the world.
BOO Seeka have also been noted for their infectious live performance, being featured in festival lineups such as Groovin’ the Moo, Splendor In The Grass, Party in the Paddock, The Big Pineapple, The Great Escape (UK) and SXSW (US). Reflecting their own talent, the duo were matched up to support notable artists such as Sticky Fingers, SAFIA, DMA’s, Jarryd James, Cherub (US) and North East Party House and continued their international success, selling out headline shows in Amsterdam, London, San Francisco and New York on their 2017 tour.
With their fresh sound and high energy live shows, in the last six months, Ben and Mike sold out shows around Australia on their Summer Corona Tour and played festivals such as Violet Vibes and Beyond theValley. A swag of new songs in the works, BOO Seeka are currently in the studio finishing off their second album, and will have plenty more exciting things to reveal throughout 2019
