Cambridge Analytica… Data farming… The Information Age… We’re all caught in an ‘Algorithm Prison’… The new track from London’s most exciting new band SISTERAY is another belting, intelligent, and timely statement from the 4-piece – out through another important London upstart, Vallance Records. Watch here
With a string of thrilling live performances across the past year, including at Reading Festival, Camden Rocks, Tramlines Festival, shows for Dr Martens, their first European dates, and all culminating in a sold out show at London’s Dingwalls just last month, Sisteray have been quickly clicking through the gears and given us a new British band to truly get excited about.
If last year’s ’15 Minutes’ EP from the group gave us a glimpse of what these guys are capable of, then their new material shows that promise being fulfilled, and then some.
‘Algorithm Prison’, the latest track from the 4-piece, is a precursor to their best work yet, set to follow in EP form later this May. “We ain’t your target market” howls singer Niall Rowan as they rail against the digital world we’re in, what we’ve become, what we’re doing with it. Oh, and it even features Pete Townsend’s own guitar, because of course it does, that’s how these guys roll.
This is Sisteray and it’s time to tune in folks…
Sisteray release ‘Algorithm Prison’ through Vallance Records, with a new EP set to swiftly follow in late spring. The band also have a series of live dates coming up, including Camden Rocks and a headline show at London’s 100 Club later in the year.
