"Rising white nationalism & the current U.S. administration, respectively"

A Freudian trilogy from electro-opera singer-songwriter Trishes

Ego is the first of three releases that describe the struggle between parts of oneself, each named after Freud’s constructs of self,” says electro-opera singer-songwriter Trish Hosein, aka one-woman band Trishes. “Ego will be followed by full-length album, The Id, a more minimal and rhythmically based collection that represents the primal self.” The first of the three releases dropped March 1.

“The record takes my live show, comprised of vocal looping, vocal effects and keys, and pairs it with synth bass, live bass, 808s, trap hats, and other hip-hop percussive elements.” Two singles have been released so far. “‘Hydra’ and its music video is a choreographed piece that displays my heritage. The music video for the second single, ‘Money,’ is inspired by the transformational art of French artist Olivier de Sagazan.”

The second video premiered in December on the Parade Magazine website for the long-lived Sunday newspaper supplement (under a headline declaring her an “urban pop artist”). The video for “Language,” documents the lives of a recently resettled refugee family.

Physical copies of Ego will include art prints and poetry as well. “The mixed media collection explores elements of human existence birthed out of our shared internal conflict between the primal and the spiritual selves. On both a personal and global scale, it grapples with core themes of possession, creativity, self-awareness, government, and language.”

Breaking down the songs on Ego, she says “‘Money’ touches on the prison industrial complex and the Flint water crisis, among other hot button issues, while ‘Hydra’ and ‘Caesar’ serve as direct responses to rising white nationalism and the current U.S. administration, respectively…‘Language’ and ‘Saraswati’ express the limits of words and awareness through what are ultimately love songs.” She recorded the tracks with Grammy Award-winning producer Jordan Waré and Grammy-nominated First Born.

Hosein was 7 when her family relocated from Trinidad to the U.S., arriving in San Diego a few years later and attending local Canyon Crest Academy before studying at Berklee College of Music. She has toured the U.S. as a solo act, playing showcases at Austin’s South By Southwest festival and acting as a vocal DJ for celebrity parties and fashion shows.

For her new Freudian trilogy, “My goal was to write through a sociological lens with genuine heart, draw parallels between history and current events, and pull from emotion and experience, to extract what is consistently, and inherently, human.”
