The Seshen Releases New Album, ‘Flames & Figures’


East Bay band The Seshen has become a local favorite over the past few years with its vibrant, eclectic take on neo-soul and R&B-inflected pop. The seven-piece bands combines the rich vocals of singers Lalin St. Juste and Akasha Rockland with virtuosic percussion, bass, and keyboard playing and electronic production.

[jump] The ensemble just released its new album, Flames & Figures, their first full-length project with the UK label Tru Thoughts. The new LP retains the stylistic signatures of previous releases, but this time the hybridized, genre-bending compositions are much more focused. While their last project, Unravel, dazzled with the band’s ability to create intricate layers of intermingling sounds, Flames & Figures explores spare dance beats, single-instrument solos, and the malleability of St. Juste’s throaty voice. 

Take a listen below and catch The Seshen at UC Theatre in Berkeley on October 22 with Bells Atlas and ANML.
