"achieve in their tracks a new sound drenched in guitar-based electronica...they are able to explore the syntax of electronica with awe and excitement", Issue 24 Winter 2006 .
Keser fuse an experimental, unique guitar style with synthesised beats resulting in a progressive form of guitar-based electronica.
Keser are signed to UK indie label Alex Tronic Records, and have released two albums to date, Esoteric Escape and Robo_Ghost. The albums were both recorded at Alex Tronic Records studio with label manager and producer Paul Croan, who also releases music as artist Alex Tronic.
When performing live, Keser lean towards an instrumental, heavy, distorted and energetic approach but will also perform quieter ambient textures within their music. This musical dynamic draws comparisons to genres like shoegaze, art rock, metal and post rock. Their live set up involves electric guitar, bass, keyboards, drum machines, effects, samplers and a laptop.
Keser toured their debut album in Scandinavia with shows in Norway and Denmark during December 2006.
Notable support shows since then include Christ., Ulrich Schnauss, The Phantom Band, Sleepy Sun and Amazing Baby.
