Sasha Siem

Sasha Siem blends experimental trip-hop with solemn undertones to create a whole other world of infinite darkness and intrigue. It's a thing of beauty that cannot be ignored.

Undoubtedly when listening to Sasha Siem, thoughts go rushing back to Portishead and Massive Attack. However, there's a sinister edge to Sasha that brings her into the modern era; hear her latest single 'Crows' below, and see just why we fell in love with her.  

Raw Meat: Tell us about your local music scene; what's your favourite local venue, are there any record labels or stores we should that we should look up, what's the scene like where you're from?
Sasha Siem: London is in bloom. To cherry-pick... Cafe Oto in Dalston is a favourite. Then there's Southbank, Barbican, Roundhouse. I'd love to play the Albert Hall. For vinyl, my closest is Rough Trade East, but I also like popping into Harold Moores in Soho. I've recently started a label, Blue Plum Records. We've got some crazy releases in the works so keep an eye out...

Name one track or band that you love from the past.
Couperin - 'Les Barricades Mysterieuses'.

Name one track or band that you're loving right now.
Empress Of - 'Need Myself'.

Name one track or band that you think we should be listening out for in the future.
Cosmo Sheldrake.

What are you up to now?
Freezing on the set of my new music video in Iceland. I've just sung my new single 'CROW' with a Raven on my arm.

What can we expect from you next?
A swan song. Rebirth.

Sasha Siem is playing her first show of 2016 next Monday (11/04/16) at Kings Place in Kings Cross, London; tickets are available here.

NO ONE CARES WHAT YOU THINK, BUT LEAVE A COMMENT ANYWAY

After seeing Guttfull live, we became completely besotted. So we thought it was about time we asked them the only questions that really matter.

When the same band are recommended to you three times in a week it's pretty clear that you're not the only one that has fallen under Thyla's spell.

They're Irish, they're ladies, their EP is out now. And we like them. A lot.
