“It’s always cause for celebration when there’s new music from The Seshen.”—Afropunk

The Seshen is a San Francisco–based six-piece band led by singer/lyricist Lalin St. Juste and bassist/producer Akiyoshi Ehara. Their forward-thinking sound combines synthesizers, drum machines, and live percussion to create an innovative fusion of R&B, synth-pop, and electronic music.  Their unique alchemy of seemingly disparate sounds has led fans and critics alike to describe the band as defying categorization.

The Seshen’s latest release, Flames & Figures, was two years in the making and marks an evolution in their distinctive sound. Narrated by St. Juste’s lyrical stream of consciousness, Flames & Figures explores themes of femininity, power, illusion, and loss, as she draws on both her personal experiences and the world of her imagination.
