Superior Siren is an eerie folk project from Duluth, Minnesota. The captivating music is inspired by Lake Superior and Siren mythology. Superior Siren is led by singer-songwriter and guitarist Laura Sellner. In 2016 Sellner joined forces with cellist Rachel Gobin, bassist Nyssa Krause, and drummer Emma Deaner to create a alluring blend of vocals, strings, and percussion. The collective released the first full-length album in 2018, followed by a tour of the Midwestern United States. On May 7th, 2021 Superior Siren released a solo EP of original material spotlighting Laura Sellner’s poignant songwriting.
Their latest release, "Kill Your Darlings" is a solo collection of original material spotlighting Laura Sellner’s raw and alluring songwriting. "This collection of songs is an ode to past relationships, and how those experiences influenced the relationship I have with myself. By knowing and loving others I have expanded my ability to know and love myself. Amidst the authentic connections and genuine joy, I discovered unlearned patterns and the darkest shadows. Within the depths I found immense opportunities for healing and growth. And now it is time to make peace with the past and move forward. The meaning I connect with the literary reference ‘Kill Your Darlings’ is letting go of what no longer serves you. My intention is to release this collection and create space for the new. Thank you for listening."
