BE PREPARED TO BE IMPRESSED BY THE FIERY ELECTRONIC SOUL OF DARWIN DUO SIETTA, AND THEIR DEBUT ALBUM THE SEVENTH PASSENGER.
With a voice inﬂuenced by the rugged blues of Etta James and Memphis Minni, Caiti Baker’s powerful presence and themes of empowerment, love and hurt leave an unforgettable mark on the listener. In another time she may have gone down an R&B/pop path – such is her rich soaring delivery. Thankfully, Sietta didn’t dumb down; embracing a grittier direction, coated in a disarmingly alluring voice. As Kahlil Gibran said: ‘Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart’.
Crucial to what makes Sietta special is producer James Mangohig’s street-smart bass and drums, a reimagined electronic sound heavily inﬂuenced by hip hop. You have to be a real music lover to bring together indie sensibilities and dubstep aesthetics, rhythm & blues and industrial sounds into a soul joint. Only then to strip it all back to an acoustic jam revealing a universal appeal that ﬂoors even the most guarded listener.
The Seventh Passenger was co-produced and mixed by APRA and AIR Award winning producer Count Bounce (Sparkadia, Urthboy, Ash Grunwald).

“Remember when the Presets ﬁrst came on the scene? It was an evolution of dance music and the reality of how people saw electronica in Australia changed forever. Darwin group Sietta is that same feeling.”
“Progressive electronic beats with a sense of sophistication… and heart-melting soul vocals over the top…”
"..a shuddering bit of fiery electronic soul"
"...a bold, self-assured and honest debut from this talented Darwin duo"
