Selffish :: He She Them Us (Serein)

The elusive beauty of He She Them Us lies in the fine details of enchanting dialogues between organic and synthetic elements. There’s a magnetizing charm in the space between the notes and in the way the sounds strike, dance, echo and fade away. The compositions pulse with the grace of an elegant, powerful cinematography.

“Each time I went to visit a secluded corner of nature outside my hometown, I usually felt a strong desire to produce music,” says Riga-based composer and producer Andrejs Eigus aka Selffish in regards to his beautiful new album. And indeed, the eight compositions conjure up images of natural, serene yet alluringly mysterious places. Unless you actually visited those corners of nature outside Eigus’ hometown, these places exist only within our minds, in the depths of our imagination and dreamy childhood memories.
