We Are The Seahorses


“Three maniacs from Jersey (with Wham City seasonings) armed with laptops, multiple costume changes, strobe lights, fishnets, and mountains of other crap. Prepare to be overwhelmed and more than slightly disturbed.” - Sleep When Dead NYC "Darren Mabee is perhaps most famous for being Man Man’s biggest fan and attacking Jonah Ray at a concert; however, he also has a band of his own, We Are The Seahorses, and they are a completely terrifying experience while being intensely fascinating at the same time.

“Three maniacs from Jersey (with Wham City seasonings) armed with laptops, multiple costume changes, strobe lights, fishnets, and mountains of other crap. Prepare to be overwhelmed and more than slightly disturbed.” - Sleep When Dead NYC "Darren Mabee is perhaps most famous for being Man Man’s biggest fan and attacking Jonah Ray at a concert; however, he also has a band of his own, We Are The Seahorses, and they are a completely terrifying experience while being intensely fascinating at the same time. Hailing from the state of New Jersey, the four piece group consists of a guitarist, a bassist, beats from a laptop, two televisions with video, a pixie-ish vocalist, a cardboard cutout of Abraham Lincoln (at least this performance), and of course the hulking mass of Mabee himself, who also shares vocal duties. There’s a certain 'what the fuck' factor as Mabee runs around mostly naked (making even a band like Fucked Up seem on the conservative side) with fake blood and sparkles on his face. The show may not be for the faint of heart, but if you think you got the stomach to check out We Are The Seahorses live, you will be treated to one of the most amazing performances you’ve ever seen." - CMJ "Going into the night I knew that We Are the Seahorses would take the cake for sheer insanity and they did not disappoint one bit.

The group is as much a performing art quartet as it is a band, with music blaring, videos playing, shouting coming from everywhere, jokes being made, nudity being encouraged, and crap being tossed everywhere. They are a mess, they make a mess, but it's something you can't peel your eyes away from. Like a horrible car accident, We Are the Seahorses are something for everyone, though they may really infuriate certain people (like a couple of girls that came for the show). It's both ridiculous and highly entertaining at the same time and it's difficult to describe all that they do as it's still a bit hazy for me.

I spent the better part of the Seahorses set giggling away, wondering what they would do next, but at every turn there was another bit of unpredictability. As their synthetic music blared from the PA the group danced, pranced, twirled, stripped, and obliterated the entire venue. Confetti was strewn about, instruments were played by everyone in attendance, there was just so much happening that I'm having ridiculous trouble conveying all of it in a simple blog post. I think your best bet would be to see them live, their recorded music is nothing compared to the live show, and I think for most of us it's something that needs to be experienced.

The only problem with We Are the Seahorses is that it is absolutely impossible to follow the band and we had another one set to play after them." - Pop Tarts Suck Toasted Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
