Australian rockers SEIMS have released their new single Showdown With A Victim. The track is the third to be shared from their forthcoming album FOUR.
Multi-instrumentalist Simeon Bartholomew says of the track: “I feel like this song summises the album perfectly. It’s all about the journey of two voices arguing over who is right. The argument intensifies with a 5/8 riff that moves up half a step with every rotation – it never lets you release. Literally, never. Even through the “choruses” of Theme B, the punctuation of the downbeat on the 11th bar is there to end the sentence – but it never feels naturally resolved. Eventually, both parties end up saying the same thing in their own words; and they both realise they’re wrong. The closing 11/4 passage takes you through their unified, unending moment of questioning. There’s no more fighting; and there’s no resolve. Just eternal limbo.”
