Review - Boo Seeka

pepper - August 17

 
 
IT’S NEVER TOO SOON to fall in love with a new album. Despite being fashionably late, Boo Seeka’s long-awaited debut album Never Too Soon is finally here, and it’s love at first sound. 
 
The Sydney hip-hop-psych-soul project splashed into the muso scene in 2015 when Ben (aka Boo) and Sammy (aka Seeka) uploaded their first experimental track Kingdom Leader to Triple J Unearthed after only knowing each other for a week. 
 
The magic that was Boo Seeka immediately travelled through soundwaves capturing hearts across the nation and while fans have endured a long wait, their debut album is finally here and it’s everything you’d expect from the indie-electronic duo.  
 
Recorded across three continents from car parks, tour buses and Sydney studios, the beautifully crafted body of work takes you on a two-and-a-half year journey back to where it all began for Boo and Seeka. 
 
From a musical experiment in 2015 to a ripe and delicious 11-track wonder of pulsating synths combined with electronic bass and percussive layers, Never Too Soon keeps the energy sizzling like a pre-Justin Bieber house party. 
 
It’s soulful, spontaneous, yet simple and relatable. 
 
Is it too soon to label it album of the year? Never Too Soon. 
 
Available on iTunes for $14.99. iTunes rated 5 stars.
