The Seshen is a 7-piece Bay Area-based band whose songs mix live and electronic elements. Their music utilizes electronic textures to suggest complex emotions and vivid imagery but also to blur the distinction between the abstract and the familiar. The Seshen takes influences from electronic music, hip-hop, pop, R&B, dub, and indie rock to create beat-driven compositions with a strong emotional core. Driving beats laced with Afro-Caribbean percussion, thick bass lines, rich keyboards and textured electronic sampling provide the foundation for lyricists Lalin St. Juste and Akasha Orr, whose dreamy vocals create an ethereal sonic landscape.
Guy Fox entered this world at an impressive 635lbs 8oz and has established a following of all-night-dance-enthusiasts and local musicians alike. Through club concerts, house parties, late-night open jam sessions and street performances, they honed their "anyshit-could-happen" style live show. It's an experience that finds them flirting with a number of genres-rock, funk, soul, indie and world music- whlie keeping their audience glued to the dancefloor.
After 4 months in and out of Tiny Telephone studios in the mission, the band celebrated the release of their debut EP in January 2012.
