Sisteray Prove Once Again They’re One of the Best Underground Bands Today
When a song begins with as epic drumming as this does, and face melting guitar riffs, I often think how on earth is this going to take off from this moment!? It’s surely not going to, but I was very very wrong.
I was overwhelmed with a punk rocker vocal and in your face lyrics. Can you imagine when this song gathers its deserved momentum, anything other than a crowd erupting at the very first bang of the drums? Cause I can’t.
The song has the feel of Empire, by Kasabian, and at moments it reminded me of Come On Feel The Noise by The Quiet Riot. What’s not to get ecstatic about? It’s a song for the people, the people who have had enough of certain individuals in an ever growing vain society. And the people want nothing better than having a record like this to express it!
So here it is guys. It’s a song I’d be in waiting for amongst that festival crowd, a song where I’d be encouraged to climb on the shoulders of a stranger, and absorb every single second of this new and pure rock anthem.
With that being said, the song ‘Rumour Mill’ had me fascinated by the intelligence of the lyrics, it’s punk rock poetry, yet you’re not quite realising you’re being hypnotised by a steady tempo on the drums, and occasional teasing guitar riffs. And then the song explodes, which had me throwing my head back and forward like a well seasoned heavy metal rocker.
Lyrically someone, somewhere, has done a lot of talking without thinking. And we all know of those people! The wordsmith behind this record has painted this picture in a rather genius way, and It’s honestly difficult to go back from the fun you’re having now.
Especially when the track ‘Algorithm Prison’ has more edge, it made me think are we all just playing by the rules? Accepting whats in front of us as normal? Like we are players in a real life version of the PC Game The Sims. Being controlled by a hierarchy, that we believe care?
It reminded me a lot of ‘Bring It On Down’ by oasis. It’s melodically banging and with those lyrics the track really had me buzzing! I thought maybe I was in for some breathing space when I heard ‘Sisteray Said’, but the utterly awesome happened again!
I’m well drunk on this EP at this point, but the opening bass just tipped me over the edge. It was my flaming sambuca. I was a ‘Sisteray’ worshipper now. This song was just 2 and a half minutes of musical mayhem, and no matter how much you want to escape it you can’t.
This EP showed me how brilliantly skilled these musicians are and I cannot stress that enough, they’re different class. The writing with edge but bringing you honesty, adding fuel to the fire while taking you on that rollercoaster with them. This band are the real deal and I cannot wait to hear more.
