Because singer Malgorzata Wacht moved to the United States from Poland before the term "alternative" became synonymous with "grunge," she never had to be saddled with that musically hermetic attitude that precludes certain people from appreciating the haunting and seductive beauty of Dead Can Dance, as well as the imaginative genius found within the swirling, roiling, shining guitar rock of Twice Wilted. As a result, the music of the Siren Project (due at the Oriental Theater on Thursday, July 17) fearlessly incorporates electronic music with atmospheric rock and the traditional folk of her homeland. There is a smoky, dusky, Euro-decadence that gilds the edges of the band's sound and lends it a mysterious, dreamy character, with Wacht's arrestingly operatic vocals soaring throughout to create songs that are as captivating as they are otherworldly.
