âMy body is a music instrument. Being on stage allows me to express those contradictory feelings that haunt meâ. From âInvasionâ to âNothing is beautifulâ¦â, the first abrasive titles of this 21 year-old singer and model are gut crunchers and attracting a growing public. Gradually ESIE is becoming an icon of a flourishing neo no wave trend coming from the West coast of the USA to New York, Europe and Asia. Her lyrics tackle domination, passivity, manipulation, but also motherly love, solitude and withdraw syndrome. Her hyper sensitivity gives your goose bumps (I will not sing in the rain) and takes us into Kafka-like internal vertigo (Under my body). The quintessence of her songs spring from her skin-deep qualms. Those extreme yet subtle feelings are highlighted by her producer Yoshimi Hishida, ex-colleague of Takeshi Kitano and Kinji Fukusaku (one of the master of Yakuza gangter movies). ESIE and Yoshimi claim a common inspiration : Akira Miyoshi, Japanese cult musician, the pioneer of cross-roads between classical and electronic music, from Steve Reich and Olivier Messiaen.
Stage wise, ESIE was already a muse for famous Japanese magazine Non No at the age of 16. She walked down catwalks in Japan for 2 years and was chosen for L'Oreal advertising campaigns. After a break, ESIE is back in the world of modeling.
