Dive / 4AM is the latest outing from San Francisco Bay Area-based sixpiece, 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.
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. 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.
