Review Summary: I See Seaweed is a fiercely intense showcase of the band's darkly enchanting style. Singer Gareth Liddiard is well-known for penning some of the most original rhyming couplets in Australian music; I See Seaweed is no exception. Neither stylistic decision sits well with The Drones’ reputation for misanthropic, noisy rock ‘n’ roll, but the result is beautiful.
yearning for simpler times. The Drones have reaffirmed themselves as one of Australia’s greatest musical assets through a deeply provocative and engaging album. I See Seaweed, The Drones’ sixth studio album, sees front man Gareth Liddiard delve into darker and broader themes.Manic outbursts familiar throughout the past 5 albums are made all the “So goodbye my friend, I’m hitting send/Forgive me talkingstraight/I’m only trying to make the world/A much less painful place” sings Liddiard, closing the album on a note that brilliantly ties in all of its themes.
‘Nine Eyes’ sees Liddiard using Google Street View to visit his childhood home – accompanied by a sinister groove – and wondering “what kind of asshole drives this lime green Commodore” parked out front; ‘A Moat You Can Stand In’ matches a hilarious skewering of modern religious practices to a taut, thrash-rock tempo that nods at their early material.

This album’s greatest surprise is saved for the penultimate track, ‘Laika’: an orchestral upswing suddenly blooms from nowhere, and it’s later paired with a harmonising female choir. A division of the Monash Student Association, Lot's Wife is completely student written and organised. Accompanied by tip-toe instrumentation, the haunting arpeggios are all the more sinister as Liddiard stabs at senseless “swarms” of breeders; “We’re lockstepping in our billions/Lockstepping in our swarms/Lockstepping in the certainty that more need to be born.”.

The eight-minute title track alludes to rising seas and overpopulation: “We’re locksteppin’ in our billions,” he sings, “Locksteppin’ in our swarms / Locksteppin’ in the certainty that more need to be born”.
