FRESH: ‘Come As The Sun’ – Sasha Siem

Sasha Siem showcases “Come As The Sun”

Award-winning artist Sasha Siem has started off her 2020 they way she hopes to go on, with the stunning release of her double A sided single, featuring two new tracks titled “Come As The Sun” and “Eve Eyed”. Taken from her upcoming album “Holy” set for release during the Summer, the two tracks continue along a path of positivity for Sasha. Using her musical platform to promote healing and empowerment, the two tracks featured on this brand new double a side ring true to this very mantra.

The first, “Come As The Sun”, is euphoric in all its senses. From its gentle sounds to the songs soothing lyrics, Siem has carefully crafted a single of total bliss. The track reaches ultimate levels of paradise, when Siems velvet vocals and the singles sumptuous melodies come to the fore, providing the perfect pinnacle to a song that has powers to soothe any listeners senses. The second, “Eve Eyed”, is a track that invites women around the world to explore and examine the rigid gender boundaries that restrict and suppress them. The track encourages us to break outside of these damaging ideologies and forge a new world where femininity is heralded, respected, and revered. Starting simply with a dynamic cello introduction, the song quickly intensifies with the inclusion of Siem’s powerfully commanding vocals. There is a beguiling magnetism to her tone that you can’t help but get drawn into and her poetic lyricism perfectly encapsulates the empowering sentiments of the track.

Comprised of eleven songs, the album “Holy” tackles the collective experiences of humanity in a highly personal way. With a wide range of subject matter, the album is, at its core, about reflection and change. Siem explains that “We have to change the world by changing ourselves”, and the album is a homage to this statement. Starting with feelings of fear and anger, Siem subverts these experiences and changes them into periods of growth and self-reflection whilst inviting her listeners to do the same.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
