Since releasing Flames & Figures back in 2016, The Seshen have stayed busy with countless live shows (which you should definitely check out if they’re in a city near you) and a drive to improve their overall lives.
Showing no signs of slowing down, the San Francisco-based collective have officially returned with their third full-length album, CYAN.
“Since Flames and Figures, a lot has been taking place both internally and externally,” lyricist and vocalist Lalin St. Juste recollects. “We were on tour for the last album during the 2016 U.S. election. There was an intense heaviness, a familiar one, one that extends generations and it just sunk in even further. I was at the edge of myself. This album is about pulling back the layers of who I am in order to push through sadness and grab onto what’s underneath. “
“I’m learning to be unapologetically black, unapologetically queer, unapologetically a woman,” she continued. “Unapologetically myself.”
Building on the progression of Flames and Figures, the new body of music is as personal as it is political, as soft as it is strong, and as joyful as it is angry–pulling from a deep well of electronic influences, R&B, and rock.
