Sisters just released their brand new video like hours ago! Watch below! It premiered last night at the Seattle Lesbian and Gay Film Festival, and it completely opened up a new kind of conversation. The song “Queer Life” (which they wrote two days before Marriage equality was legalized across America), is a supportive and fun portrayal on the family dynamic that pertains to coming out to those who still think it’s just a stage. The video ends with the wildest dance party explosion, and who doesn’t like dancing? It is a wonderful support of a real issue in America and it is a reoccurring theme in their music and lives as far as I can tell. We love this Video, so check it out!
I’m not going to lie, I usually don’t expect much sound from any two piece band. Sisters, an indie pop duo from Seattle far surpassed my expectations in that respect. They’re an explosion of sound in league with bands like MGMT and Portugal. The Man. Both Emily Westman and Andrew Vait seem to be champions at multitasking, as you watch Emily conquering with tight drumming technique and singing harmonies, while Andrew plays keyboards and offers up the electric effects of his genius. This all sewn together through their perfect harmonies intertwining like the arms of long lost sisters. They have a sense of quirkiness about them as well that reminds me of the band of Montreal, vocally.
The band who moved separately to Seattle after playing various projects around the area finally got together in 2014 forming Sisters officially. They met at University of Miami’s Frost School of Music initially and the rest is history according to their band bio on their website. Since then, they have played at Sasquatch! and Bumbershoot music festivals along with many others. Give them a listen and check out their enormous sound and vocal harmonies bleed together seamlessly here!
