Sasha Siem

So Polite
To say that Sasha Siem's debut Most of the Boys sounds like nothing else is a far less extravagant claim than it might initially seem. It's clear from its opening song alone that this is not only an unusual record, but one that exists in its own world: the album's title track is built around arresting, daring string arrangements, intricate time changes, nimble shifts in mood, and a haunting, exceptional voice. Thought there's no obviously recognizable pattern to what follows, these are qualities that remain conspicuous throughout the collection's nine further songs.
