Sometimes you can find the people whose mind won’t stop running, in the clubs shaking their ass to a mainstream song, just to lose themselves in the moment. Others, when life gets too hectic, use music to soothe, as they unwind – as if they’re the only people in the world. For the ones who are feeling for something in between, we have got the perfect artist to put you in an alterna-state.
Sienna sticks out like a sore thumb, and in the vast world of music, that’s what Indie Band Guru is looking for – “Different, exotic, unique.” Originally from ancient Kyoto, Japan, Sienna’s currently located in Norway, where she produces her one of a kind East meeting West sound. Sienna has teamed with Kristian Wentzel and Hallvard Gaardløs since 2005 releasing four EPs in that time – These earlier sounds have a folk, alternative sound but her latest EP, Japonesque released earlier this month has a much more exotic twang. Her tunes are creating a tranquil-riot throughout Japan and the UK. She proclaims to be an awake-walking daydreamer and it reflects within her music. Her music rings space-electronica on ‘Gion’, with a hint of jazz, a dash of funk (‘Play’), and smothered in an oriental vibe like on ‘Ascension’. This is music to experience more than just listen.
