NORTHERN Rivers (via Melbourne) Electronic indie duo Seavera have been named in the list of the 50 most played on Triple J Unearthed for 2016.

Tori Zietsch and Daniel Pinkerton are the musicians behind this project.

The band made the list in the 37th spot, ahead of other up-and-coming young artists from across the country such as Hein Cooper (38) and Babaganouj (40).

Zietsch and Pinkerton met in Lismore as children, and re-connected in Melbourne in early 2016 in order to embark on a shared vision, together writing and producing music under the moniker of Seavera.

The song caught the attention of radio and bloggers across the world.

Consisting of their own brand of lo-fi beats, sparkly layers, honeyed vocals, and heavyweight emotions, the latest single, Parallel and Repeat, was inspired by an essay about the importance of speaking with intention.

The song became a reflection on a series of personal relationships.

The band made a special appearance at the 2016 NCEIA Dolphin Awards ceremony.

The band will be playing Falls Festival in Lorne, Victoria, this month.
