We've got a pair of tickets for Chicago indie quartet's set at The Scala next week

Consistently brilliant long-running Chicago indie band The Sea And Cake are playing The Scala next Wednesday, March 6, and we've got a couple of tickets up for grabs.

We're particularly big fans of last year's Runner album, about which we said: "[It's] ability to sew together the inclinations of identifiably disparate musical templates while (just about) retaining sonic coherence and resisting the temptation to ironise its influences makes Runner work. It’s an album which succeeds by virtue of elegance, and which knows a hell of a lot without ever seeming overly knowing." Have a watch of the videos for 'On And On' and 'Harps' from the album below.

To be in with a chance of winning, just e-mail your answer to the following question to, with SEA in the subject line, by midday Monday 4 March. It's open to UK residents only, and to read the Quietus Competition terms & conditions, click here.
