salyu’s work under her pseudonym salyu x salyu, particularly her album s(o)un(d)beams are innovative and just plain beautiful. Doing some amazing vocal gymnastics and essentially creating a chorus of salyu, this album amazed. One of my particular favourites of this album is her Lali Puna cover of “Hostile to Me”. While I found the original to be very robotic and constrained, salyu’s version brings out the darkness of the lyrics as if singing in an uncertain limbo. It’s very deep and meditative even as the different vocal tracks weave into each other elegantly to create a haunting climax.
