Sian Alice Group

Experimental UK outfit...

Sian Alice Group
Sian Alice Group - a collective of UK musicians Sian Ahern, Rupert Clervaux and Ben Crook, amongst other collaborators - have, in the past couple of years been insanely productive, from the epic '59.59' and 'The Dusk Line' (a subdued piano and vocals only EP) to the wholeheartedly experimental Remix 12’’, the band made the scene, built up a stellar following and positioned itself as a contender to be reckoned with. Now, in 2009 Sian Alice Group is back with their second album of lush, minimalist, panoramic torch songs, 'Troubled, Shaken Etc'. The band hones in on a genre-busting combination of organic improvisation, process-driven experimentation and the focused strength earned from a year of extensive travelling and touring the world together. You get your minimalist trances, electronic exploration, techno thump, jazz motifs and Eastern music tropes in a joyous and complete listening experience. It’s a snapshot from an eventful 2008 that is rawer, more emotional and louder than anything they’ve released thus far. MySpace
