“The sense of dream is strong here, and Sui Zhen has hit the mark in every way possible. ”
— The Thousands

Melbourne resident Sui Zhen’s ‘Female Basic’ showcases her own version of Japanese post-punk through a dreamy balaeric-bossanova filter.

Having graduated from the Redbull Music Academy in London alongside the likes of Daisuke Tanabe & Andras Fox, Female Basic sees Sui Zhen move away from her previous beautiful bedroom-pop on to something more minimal and mysterious. Influenced as much by long sunny days spent in Osaka as nights in Shinjuku record stores hunting for Mariah & Dip in the Pool vinyl, Sui Zhen gives us the soundtrack for a slow-motion, late night disco found somewhere between Australia & Japan.

Female Basic is available from May 1st through Teto Records on limited edition cassette and digital. 5 tracks & 25 minutes of minimal pop perfection. All cassettes come with download code with high quality MP3s of all included songs.

Track Name: Pipe Dreams
Arrived, to the other
Side, it's unfamiliar
Look back, things I thought I had a hold of
Have all slipped away
With the day
CHORUS
I really want to hold on
But I can't get a hold of
I really want to ride that wave
Before I wash away
One day I'm gonna fly high
And just fall down again
Then I'm gonna know why
It's all happening

Light, I have enough of
That's not the question
It's where to hide
To let the darkness in
So I can bring back
Night, I long for the night

CHORUS

Time, I swear it's moving faster
Or am I, slowing my mind
Sight, I think it's getting further
So it's time
I get back

CHORUS
Track Name: Dekopon Dance
Every time I go
Every time I stay
Every time I go
I know I will see you again

It doesn't feel
Like it's been a long time
Since we met
But I know I will meet you there

On the way there
On the way there
There's not a time
When I don't feel like I'm connected

Every time I go
Every time that I come back
Every time I go
I know there's a way to come back home

It doesn't feel (It doesn't feel)
Like it's been a long time (It's been a time)
Since we met
But I know I will lead you there

All the way there
All the way there
There's not a time
When I don't feel like I connected

Every time I go
Every time that I come back
Every time I know
I know there's a way to come back home
Track Name: Beige Dip
I come to you
Look in your eye
Do you see
Do they see
Do they see what is real
Within me

I come to you
Look in your eye
in your eye
Do they see
What is real (What is real)
Within me

I can't see anything at all
Only what reflects in you you've given in, before they've given in


I come to you
I look in your eyes
Do they see
What is real
Within me

I can't see anything at all
I don't see anything
I don't see anything at all
(You know I can't see my reflection, do you see me, You know I can't see my reflection, I can't see reflection, do you see me)
