432Hz, more commonly known as the Love Frequency, is a way of connecting with the universe through the power of song. It’s an interesting addition and perfect complement to Sasha’s music, which already manages to sound meditative yet utterly compelling. Recording her album in this frequency not only sets her even further apart from her peers in terms of her creativity, but encourages us to experience her music differently, physically relaxing as our system releases chemicals in a biological reaction, and taking a welcome step back from our fast-paced modern lives when we put it on.
The songs themselves are Sasha at her best. Exquisitely crafted whilst Sasha was looking after her newborn baby son, both ‘Come As The Sun’ and ‘Eve Eyed’ carry the sort of clarity found only by someone who has experienced the miracle of birth and life, and has the skills necessary to put it into words. The dual-song format works incredibly well in this case, as the songs explore the feminine and masculine energies and the ways in which they can come together to demonstrate the divine union of polar opposites. ‘Eve Eyed’ is the song which came out of Sasha writing about the feminine energy, encouraging as it does women the world over to unlock the potential for light that they have inside themselves. It urges us to reclaim femininity in all its various iterations and makes it clear that we will create a kinder and more worthwhile world by doing so.
‘Come As The Sun’ is a more laid-back song which fills the space with Sasha’s entrancing vocals and intricate production. It’s the auditory equivalent of a solo walk in a forest, with sunbeams streaming through the trees – warm, welcome, organic and quietly joyful. It encourages the listener to remain true to their core self, with Sasha describing it as “an invitation to settle into the centre of your being and shine gloriously”. The song’s varied musical elements are held together by Sasha’s warm and comforting vocals, which rise serenely over the top of truly transportive instrumentation.
Siem says that her upcoming album, Holy, is “about the collective experience – the things that make us human, the aspects of our society that unite us…” This is a bold intention set by the woman who already holds the title of the British Composer Award, one of the youngest ever recipients. This album aims to recentre and ground herself again after all her previous success. And with the Love Frequency to accompany her beautiful lyrical content and harmonious tunes, this double A-side release is sure to leave you in a similar beatific bliss.
The double A-side ‘Come As The Sun’ and ‘Eve Eyed’ was released on the 10th January 2020, with the rest of the album Holy coming on the 5th June 2020.
