SISTERS limerick

Not that you should believe everything you see on YouTube, but it would appear that Sisters are a band that like to mix their ice-cream cones with alcohol and have a fire pole in their new digs. Three sisters (though only one is a lady) hailing from the southwest, Andrew, Aoife and Nile are now based in London. Lucky London. Combining an obvious love for pop with a lo-fi, slightly shambolic approach, most of their tracks could have fallen straight onto the famous C86 tape that made indie stars of the likes of The Wedding Present. With their boy-girl vocals, they most immediately recall The Pastels, roughed up a bit and stripped of overt tweeness. Elsewhere, the guitars on ‘Sun Walk’ sound a little like My Bloody Valentine played through a tiny, clapped speaker. ‘Clearhead’ is their first single, released on Gravy last summer, and provided us with the aforementioned YouTube moment. It showcases a trio unafraid to lark about, interested in little other than their noise-pop wonders. They also went down a storm at Brighton’s Great Escape. More Irish dates, please!
