"A composer, producer and sound designer, Etyen wears many hats. There’s a through line to the Beirut-based musician’s work, though: A heavy dose of emotion.
Etyen counts Sigur Rós as one of his foremost influences, and you can hear their sweeping grandeur in nearly everything he does. “Indie, electronica something” is how he modestly explains his sound. And it’s not a bad way of putting it. A frequent collaborator, Etyen weaves together the electronic and acoustic expertly, with violins, vocals and his own guitar playing often coalescing into a swirling and evocative mix that is guaranteed to bring a tear to your eye – in a good way." - Red Bull Music Academy, 2016
