Captivating vocals lead gorgeous and twisted electro dream pop à la the Notwist, Postal Service and of Montreal.

More about the project…
Since 2004 Sethums aka Older Than Hours has been working at a steady clip with his Mac on a blueprint for his solo project. At several points in the creative process he began to file songs into different emotional characters. All of them fell under the scope of electro pop and rock but some tracks had more quirks and kinks of irony, subtle nuances of smirking in the delivery of the vocal melody. He went so far as to put together a focus group, pulling together friends whose musical tastes varied the gamut of top 40 to extreme noise. That was strangely helpful, sort of.
The result is a mix of real and software instruments backing organic vocal melodies and the push/pull of story line vs. non sequiter word play. Sethums aka Older Than Hours is about pushing the limits of how a song or image fits in a framework and distilling it to the aspects that make it raw, heartfelt and strong.
