Seeds Of Orbit
The Lowest Fidelity
The critically-acclaimed Seeds of Orbit listened to the people’s pleas for a mighty homegrown psychedelic band – and boy, have they answered them. Following the release of their self-titled EP and a blistering live performance with the Psychic Maps, they've given everyone's ears and minds long enough to recover from their release party, and are back for Round 2 of their sonic takeover plans.
Something of a
supergroup, this three-piece has a deep love for heavy mod,
stoner rock and acid folk. Made up of Mark
Petersound (aka Mark Petersen –
Straitjacket Fits, Cabbage Bomber, Shaft),
Bridgette Bowie (The Doris Days,
Cabbage Bomber and legendary all-girl punk band
Fake Purr), and Marty Doo
(NZ: The Beads;
Australia: Glide, Challenger 7, Scruffs,
Grapefruit),their mind-alteringly psychedelic debut
EP ‘Seeds of Orbit’ was recently released on Powertool
The Seeds perform a set that visually lives up to their musical power; and it’s something to behold.
