Home by Seja

Darkenin Heart

Home, the second single from Australian artist Seja's upcoming album Here Is One I Know You Know, scheduled to arrive later in 2023, is the first release for It Records for the year, and a psychedelic, dreamlike love song to the conveniences of home.

Seja continues to investigate various and overlapping forms of electronic expression. Home embraces the listener as it alternates between dreamy calmness and enjoyable euphony.

Seja comments on the song: “I'm always trying to channel Giorgio Moroder and Neu! , but I think I end up sounding more like Enya. This song is maybe somewhere in between the three.

Even though I wrote this in the thick of the pandemic, I really didn't set out to write a lockdown song. I see it rather more as a love letter to my comforts and enjoying this time in my life; when I take more pleasure in being inside than being out partying or socialising. I feel like it would have been written the same way without the pandemic.

I was also really loving putting everything I own through the Roland Space Echo and then playing that as almost a new instrument, creating new dynamics and textures. I wrote the song on synths along to a drum machine initially, and then it really came together when George Browning (Velociraptor) played live drums over it. The relationship between sequenced sweeping electronic instruments and real drums is one of my favourite things, so it was very exciting when he started playing along to the swinging running SH-7 bassline. Georgia Mooney's (All Our Exes Live In Texes) backing vocals sprinkled magic into the mix.”
