|The Seshen Flames & Figures Limited Vinyl LP
Flames & Figures' is the second full-length album from The Seshen, whose forward-thinking sound combines synthesizers, drum machines, live percussion and entrancing harmonies for an unmistakable fusion of R&B, synth-pop and electronic music. The long player sees the band on the cusp of a new era; two years in the making, the album marks an evolution in The Seshen's unique sound.
Full of bright synth swells, infectious bass lines and thumping 808 beats, their music is a counterpoint to lead singer Lalin St. Juste's lyrical stream of consciousness; 'Flames & Figures' explores themes of femininity, power, illusion and loss as she draws on both her personal experiences and the world of her imagination.
The San Francisco Bay Area-based seven-piece are led by Lalin St. Juste and bassist/producer Akiyoshi Ehara. The duo is joined by five remarkable bandmates to create their multidimensional music: vocalist Kasha Rockland, drummer Chris Thalmann, keyboard/synth player Mahesh Rao, percussionist Mirza Kopelman, and sampler Kumar Butler
