News Sisters

Fizzy fuzz-pop at its finest. London’s Sisters are getting us hot under the collar.

There’s something about Sisters. The way a sound so forceful and immediate doesn’t overwhelm. The way the vocals overlap like they were born to sit against one another. It’s been done before, this fuzzy noise-pop, but it’s never sounded so fresh and thrilling.

The London three-piece - Andrew, Aoife, Nile - formed in Spring 2012. Scattered dates across the capital and the band’s recording sessions are all documented in the videos for debut tracks ‘Sun Walk’ and ‘Shiny Things’ (alongside a cover of Cat Power’s ‘Nude As The News’). It’s the opposite of the scarce info, anonymity approach so many bands in this city retire themselves to when they begin their career. Instead we’re given vivid insights into their style, their sound and their evident friendships. Again, nothing wildly out of the ordinary. But Sisters’ brilliance is a little more subtle. It’s a togetherness that few bands seem to share, I think, that brings this lot out of the wilderness and towards a bright future.
