Sis share dream-inspired new single, East Coast tour starts Saturday in NYC

San Francisco experimental project Sis has set up shop squarely in the realms of full-hearted poeticism, formulating powerful images focused around feelings over themes, poesy over experience, and experimentation over genre. Lead singer/multi-instrumentalist/lyricist Jenny Gillespie Mason dove into the new project with nothing but some rough ideas, an OP1 synthesizer, and a personal journal from which to draw ideas at her disposal. The result is an enigmatic and highly satisfying collusion of word and idea.

Written and recorded at Tiny Telephone in San Francisco, Sis’s debut LP Euphorbia (Native Cat 2018) wrangles a mishmash of influences into a cohesive and broadly untried endeavor. Also featuring drummer Joe Adamik (Califone, Iron & Wine), percussionist Andrew Maguire (Mirah, Meernaa), bassist Jamie Riotto (John Vanderslice, red steppes), guitarist Carly Bond (Meernaa, DRMS), and producer/multi-instrumentalist engineer Rob Shelton (John Vanderslice, Mohsen Namjoo), Euphorbia plays with slippery synth lines, spirited vocal stylings, and lush instrumentals in a metrical, elegant, and thoughtfully unpredictable effort. Sis is currently wrapping up their as-yet untitled sophomore album, to be released on Native Cat spring 2019.
