Fresh from her performance at Deliaphonic last week, Aysa has officially launched her solo project.
Eşya is a new solo project from Ayşe Hassan (Savages/Kite Base), an unsettling, beat driven, and wonky exploration of alternate personas.
Transgressing comfort zones by experimenting with the complex and contradictory ideas that can exist within one person. An industrial pop existential exploration.
Her self-released debut EP Absurdity of Being, is the first in a series of releases exploring the myriad manifestations of selfhood through a whirlwind of FM and analog synths, drum machines and for the first time on record, her vocals. Incorporating sounds and visuals she has recorded whilst touring with Savages in various countries over the last 6 years.
This project sees collaborations with people in other disciplines who share the same artistic mindset, people driven by the desire to create; Chiara Ceccaioni (Photography), Chris Turner aka Favourite Colour: Black (Film Director), Dan Conway and Martina Luisetti (Make Up) et al. Absurdity of Being will be self-released by Hassan on 10″ vinyl and digital download on 10th May 2018. Eşya will be touring the UK and USA throughout the year.
