Seasaw is Eve Wilczewski and Meg Golz, who are the sea and saw respectively. The Madison, Wisconsin, duo Seasaw released their charismatic and vulnerable sophomore LP, Too Much Of A Good Thing, in July of 2016. The eleven songs combine commanding instrumentation, intricate harmonies, and refreshing wit.
Fate and a small-town restaurant in Freeport, Illinois, brought them together for the first time in 2010. Seasaw collaborated through four years of long-distance until the summer of 2015, when Eve joined Meg in their current residence of Madison.
Too Much Of A Good Thing, follows their 2014 debut, The Look In Your Eyes Tells Me This is a Bad Idea. Using the metaphor of a sunburn, their latest work is an exploration of metamorphosis. Listeners experience the peaks and valleys of human interaction—the elation (suntan), the pain (sunburn), and finally, an acceptance (new skin).
Seasaw has shared stages with Lucius, Thao & the Get Down Stay Down, SOAK, Lissie and are out on the road this month, including performances at the Ashland Folk Festival and Mid West Music Fest. Full list of dates below or click HERE.
Today, they reveal a video for “Party”, their first original track since that 2016 album, right here at Ghettoblaster. “Party” will be featured on the Record Store Day compilation Wisconsin Vinyl Collective Volume 1, which showcases artists from Wisconsin including Bodeans, Emperors of Wyoming (Butch Vig), and more. A portion of the proceeds from album sales and release show ticket sales will be donated Keep Wisconsin Warm/Cool Fund.
This is what they had to say about the video:
“The video for ‘Party’ is a play on the necessary presence of reality and fantasy coexisting in our lives culminating in an magical stop-motion inspired finale.”
