Seismic State are; Sai (guitar), Liam (bass), Matthijs (drums), and Rogina (vocals & guitar).

In June 2021 they supported Auckland rockers, and Aotearoa Music Award winners, Dead Favours on their Riffing and Yelling tour. This was followed by inclusion in the lineup of Bayrock 2022 alongside legends Head Like a Hole, Stellar*, Zed, and Push Push, however the impact of covid restrictions caused the festival to be cancelled.

Seismic State’s debut EP, State of Things, was released in 2019. All four tracks off the EP received airplay in NZ and internationally with Genius, the first single, leading the charge by reaching #47 on The Generator FM’s weekly airplay chart for the week ending 31 May 2020. Genius also held down the #58 spot on The Generator FM’s 2020 Kiwi 101 chart.

Their style mixes rock with elements of blues, funk, progressive and alternative - they combine riff-oriented guitar with melodic basslines and driving drum rhythms forming a foundation for creative vocal melodies and thought-provoking lyrics. The result is an accessible and sonically pleasing bland of music not often found in the rock scene.
