Album Review: Seyra - Send Me On | Jauh

By  January 5, 2013

UntitledLocal indie quartet Seyra have returned with a fresh new sound, Send Me On | Jauh, characterised by clean acoustic sounds, utilising lesser-known instruments like the glockenspiel and the cajon. The clean, crisp production of the three-track EP should be commended, as it brings out the vocal abilities of vocalist Sarah Ismail, who has been compared to artistes like Regina Spektor and Feist.

Send Me On has a great vibe, reminiscent of a Jason Mraz track off We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things, and its ingenuity lies in its use of the horn, a pleasant surprise in this acoustic-driven track. To the Playground is more fast tempo, with its dreamy vocals building up to a dramatic middle with banging drums, but unfortunately overwhelms the softer vocals. The tracks are infused with a romanticism that is very soothing to the listener, and for discerning music listeners, you might want to keep a lookout for this local band, because I have a feeling that their upcoming full-length might just be filled with catchy hooks and great harmonies.
