The Seshen - Dive / 4AM (7")
'Dive / 4AM' is the latest outing from San Francisco Bay Area-based six-piece, The Seshen. The 7' outlines the steps the group has made since their critically acclaimed sophomore album in 2016, both as a band and as individuals. 'Since 'Flames & Figures', a lot has been taking place both internally and externally. We were on tour for the last album when Trump was elected. There was an intense heaviness, a familiar one, one that extends generations and it just sunk in even further', singer/lyricist Lalin St. Juste explains.
Side A opens with distorted four-to-the-floor chomper, 'Dive'. Aggressive yet danceable, gritty but somehow unstoppable, 'Dive' is inspired the profound need for change, catalysed through the somnambulant Larry Heard-esque bassline meshed to the warped tones of Lalin's vocals. 'The path towards my power, my strength, being okay with being unapologetic is just starting. I'm reclaiming what I have lost, reclaiming what has been passed down to me. The song is about the ground beginning to shake', Lalin preaches.
While in contrast on side B, '4AM' untethers the listener by exploring a sense of spaciousness, flourishing the sparseness, distracting with moving snippets of delicate production. Lyrically tackling the insomniacs waking nightmare, '4AM' is about the witching hour, battling against oneself. "I was experiencing anxiety at night...where I would review all my actions and all the things I said throughout the day in search of something that I did wrong. At times it would keep me up, and I felt that I was at war with my mind.'
