Sieben Mini Biography
Live, it has been said Sieben is a one-man ‘rawchestra’, looping and layering a heady mix of his violin and voice. Always hypnotic. Previously more floaty, it’s all got a bit turbo-charged since the introduction of Matt’s 5-string Kevlar violin, Kev. He’s a bit more punk and attitude than Matt.
“Ultra-dark blends of punk, folk and electropop”
Sounds Of Life Zine
“Matt Howden writes songs for voice and violin, feeding both into a loop station to build up layers of sound. At even the most fundamental level, his work links acoustics and electronics”
Adrian Ainsworth- Specs Blog, UK
“A Sieben show is like a one-man whirlwind with a violin”
Sonic Seducer Magazine, Germany
