Unlike Minaxi’s previous body of work, sialia does not have an inherent concept; what ties the songs together despite the fluidity of genres is the unifying emotion—the one which drives the themes of love, detachment, self-ascension and nostalgia; the one which is delivered bilingually through the voices of Shrenik Ganatra and Liam Christian, intensified by Steve Carlin’s drumming and supported by guest musicians Milan Ganatra and Luke Santy; the one which beckons the band’s evolution into the forthcoming body of work.
