Sealings are a three-piece based in the dilapidated seaside resort of Brighton. Their debut LP I’m A Bastard follows numerous releases on UK independent lynchpins such as Italian Beach Babes, Tie Dye Tapes and Clan Destine Records. I’m A Bastard marks their first release proper on Brighton-based label Faux Discx, who have once again joined forces with the aforementioned Italian Beach Babes (as they did on Cold Pumas’ much celebrated 2012 release Persistent Malaise) to release the long-player.
Sealings are a band whose live show has been described as both “based more on confrontation than anything else” and “willfully abrasive”. To attempt to capture this mindset of total sonic annihilation Sealings recorded at home and in windowless ex-toilets, before handing over to like-minded peers MJ (Hookworms, Suburban Home Studio) and Mikey Young (Total Control/Eddy Current Suppression Ring) who mixed, and mastered the record respectively to both temper and bolster the group’s caustic tendencies.
