British-Norwegian singer-songwriter Sasha Siem returns with ‘Eve Eyed’, a track that invites women around the world to explore and examine the rigid gender boundaries that restrict and suppress them. The track encourages us to break outside of these damaging ideologies and forge a new world where femininity is heralded, respected, and revered.

Starting simply with a dynamic cello introduction, the song quickly intensifies with the inclusion of Siem’s powerfully commanding vocals. There is a beguiling magnetism to her tone that you can’t help but get drawn into and her poetic lyricism perfectly encapsulates the empowering sentiments of the track.

Siem felt inspired to write ‘Eve Eyed’ after an exploration into the perception of women throughout history. She discovered that whilst women from Ancient Societies were worshipped and honored, women from the Judeo Christian tradition were blamed for the fall of mankind; a belief that seeps, however unconsciously, into the minds of women and girls.

‘Eve Eyed’ invites women to shed this ‘hidden’ blame and 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.
Music, for Siem, is best used as a tool to enliven, heal, and remind, a living being that must be nurtured and explored. It has played a central role in Siem’s life since the age of eleven when she read ‘The Caged Bird’, by Maya Angelou, and was so moved that she endeavored to set it to music. “Writing that first song set something free within me”, she explained. “Song expressed something that I couldn’t convey in any other way”.

An accomplished pianist and cellist, it wasn’t long before she had written music for the London Symphony Orchestra, The Royal Opera House, and the London Philharmonic Orchestra, and in 2010 she became one of the youngest people to win a British Composer Award. Siem is now looking to expand on her critical success with her forthcoming single and album releases.

‘Eve Eyed’ is the second release from Siem’s album ‘Holy’ which is set to premiere in June. “Holy is an arms-wide-open embrace-all album”, Siem explained when asked about the forthcoming release. “I wish that my songs will inspire people to hope and feel supported in their desire to make a difference”. It’s an album that aims to transcend any religious, social, or personal limitations and simply spread a message of love and understanding.

Comprised of eleven songs, ‘Holy’ tackles the collective experiences of humanity in a highly personal way. With a wide range of subject matter, the album is, at its core, about reflection and change. Siem explains that ‘We have to change the world by changing ourselves’, and the album is a homage to this statement. Starting with feelings of fear and anger, Siem subverts these experiences and changes them into periods of growth and self-reflection whilst inviting her listeners to do the same.

So what can we expect next from this artful musician and lyricist? Well, with ‘Eve Eyed’ set for release on March 20th with the remainder of the album following in June, you won’t want to miss what this introspectively poetic singer songwriter gets up to next.
