The Seshen’s “4AM” Is For The Insomniac Overthinkers Out There

San Francisco-based group The Seshen dives into the mind-claustrophobic state of overthinking while struggling with insomnia in new single “4AM.” Layered with choppy auto-tunes and placid vocals, “4AM” is a rare mixture of funky deliria and inditronica where it has a ominous mellowness to it. Lyrically, the track shuffles through our own thoughts and demons that come seeping out of our brains during the most vulnerable hours of the night. Enjoy:

On their new single, singer/lyricist Lalin St. Juste shared: “I was experiencing anxiety at night…where I would review all my actions and all the things I said throughout the day in search of something that I did wrong. At times it would keep me up, and I felt that I was at war with my mind.”

The Seshen will be releasing a “Dive / 4AM” 7-inch via Tru Thoughts on October 11 and will be hitting the road with Rituals Of Mine starting next week. Go see them:
