The group's debut EP will drop on Compost Records later this week.
Siren is the new project of Metro Area's Darshan Jesrani and Dennis Kane, founder of Disques Sinthomme and Ghost Town. Though they started recording during the winter of 2013, the project stems back to parties they threw before and after the closing of NYC club APT. According to the press release, Jesrani and Kane have played together in a variety of settings, including, "a Canal Street Loft, a Bushwick printing factory, a former ballroom dance studio in Chinatown, an old theater, an idyllic poolside on Long Island and a burlesque parlor." Siren used a full band for the EP, and the downtown feel of the record is underlined by the presence of Liquid Liquid's Sal P on percussion. Ray Mang contributes a version for the flip.
