Singer Sijya Gupta known as Sijya is creating an intense impact on Global music. With her filtered and distorted voice and inclusive experiment with music she is making her way to the top.  Making an exciting debut with EP, Young Hate her six-song journey of melancholia and introspection was released on the UK’s Accidental Records. It was  run by one of the most prominent electronic musicians Matthew Herbert. Let’s look into the journey of this talented musician.

The Journey of Sijya Gupta

Starting the musical journey at the age of 27, music isn’t her first priority at all. Despite beginning her career as a graphic designer and artist Sijya soon build an great attachment with music.Sijya has started learning to play an instrument which ended up in disappointing results. Therefore she just became a listener. However, things changed attended a few electronic music workshops.

In an interview with Vogue India, she recalled the initial date of her career. “I ended up making a shit ton of loops,” she said. “I had reached like 140 loops. And then I thought maybe I should formalise this now, maybe make an album of 10 songs.” 

The singer’s debut ‘Have To Make My Bed’ got a decent response from the audience and critics. However her last EP, Young Hate, grabbed an immense attention of the music lovers since it featured reworked versions of the songs by a bunch of Indian and international artists, such as Dolorblind, Crewdson, Rounak Maiti and others.

“I wasn’t trying to mimic artists that I look up to. I’ve come to a place where originality is important to me. Of course, everything is always going to sound like the music I’m listening to. But it has helped me a lot that I started writing at a later age. Because I’m already a grownup and not a silly teenager anymore, there’s a certain amount of maturity to the way I approach aesthetics. I know myself a lot more now,” she said of her singing style.

However, she admitted hesitated to be a lyricist first but gradually started to like it. “I guess there’s some heartbreak things, some existential stuff. There’s smallness to it. All my words are very simple. Simple words, complicated ideas that aren’t straightforward, not common.” She noted. Moreover, she shared while writing the lyrics for her song ‘52’, she finished an entire notebook. “I stopped using notebooks after that. I use my phone now,” she recalled with a laugh.

The blend of  melancholia and abstract sadness that underpins most of her music is the key to making her stand out in the music industry.
