    New Music Round-Up: SISTERS

    “We are all actually sisters but no one believes us,” says Sisters guitarist/vocalist Niall Burns when questioned what’s one thing we might not know about Sisters but should. The three-piece released their debut single “Hush Hush” in early December last year after touring with “one of our favourite bands” Big Deal.

    The Irish band (they all come from Limerick) is comprised of bassist/vocalist Aoife, guitarist/vocalist Niall and drummer Andrew and although all come from the same city and have “been best friends for years”, it wasn’t until they all moved to London that the idea of Sisters first emerged.

    Not that they’ve forgotten about home – when asked to share any new artists, Niall cites three Irish bands. “There’s loads of really, really great Irish bands at the moment, like We Cut Corners, Funeral Suits and Slow Riot. There’s so many bands around at the moment though so it’s hard to keep up to be honest, we’re pretty enclosed in our own little Sisters world.”

    Another single is set to come out early this year along with a possible headline tour (that they’re “not entirely sure when” will happen). Keep your eyes peeled here:

    Superfood: New Music Pick Of The Week

     photo 1superfood_zps7e13d8a1.png

    VIPs deserve to get the news first so rather than follow trends we’re going to get ahead of them. When we hear something we like we’re going to tell you so that you can be cool before your friends. Brummie four-piece Superfood look set to have a great year with their EP “MAM” due to be released March 3rd. If you’re liking the ubiquitous nineties revival, wear baggy sweaters and optional beanie then you may well like Superfood.

    It might also help if you like guitar bands. Visit their label’s site and you’ll see their music described as “artfully-crafted college rock”.

    Superfood came about from chance meetings and the demo of “Superfood” was born from their very first recording session. The four-piece’s name came from this first track. They describe wanting their music to have “the Beastie Boys’ hip-hop beats” and you can kind of see the New Yorkers’ influence on Superfood if not just in the artwork on their website. Observe this Beastie Boys artwork and then visit Superfood’s own website.

    Really, whoever designed their website I’d very much like to buy a drink – just look at it. It’s pixellated genius:

    Signed to Infectious Records, Superfood supported fellow Birmingham-dwellers Peace last year and attracted attention from the likes of BBC Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe. Their “first offering to the world” (as they put it) came last year in April, the aforementioned “Superfood”. The “MAM” EP will feature four tracks including “TV” and “Bubbles” which you can see below.

    Superfood will be supporting Wolf Alice throughout May in a number of venues up and down the UK – check them out! See their Facebook page for more info
