Sirintip made the Thai-Swedish left-of-center pop album you didn’t know you needed in your life, hear her talk about it on PRI The World
Stretching across three continents and cultures (Thailand, Sweden and America), Sirintip’s remarkable debut album Tribus — produced by three-time Grammy winner Michael League of Snarky Puppy — is a gathering of different moments from the last four years of the singer/composer’s life. Out now on GroudUP Music, it’s an exciting, eclectic work that touches on pop, R&B, electronic and jazz, while creating a sound uniquely its own. Tribus is decidedly modern left-of-center pop - you could easily put these songs on a playlist between Thundercat, Kimbra and Little Dragon.
Sirintip spoke to PRI The World about the album and how she wanted to create something other “third culture kids” could relate to. “Third culture kids” are children who were raised in a culture outside of their own parents' (President Barack Obama is one example). As she tells The World, "I think it's important to cherish that difference that we have as individuals who have not grown up in just one place. And not be scared of the differences that makes us the way we are,"
