ABOUT SUN SISTER
Sun Sister is a quartet from Fitchburg, Massachusetts.
The band’s music can be described as lo-fi dreampop with warm melodies, gorgeous reverbed vocals and rough jangly guitars.
They have so far released one cassette-EP, “Rich American White Kidz”, which is available to buy via Sheffield-label Tye Dye Tapes in a limited edition of 100 (mp3s are also included). http://tyedietapes.bandcamp.com/
ABOUT THE COVERED BAND: HIGH DART
We have encouraged the single-bands to make a cover version of a song they think deserve more attention. Sun Sister have chosen to cover “Roomservice”, originally performed by High Dart.
high dart is a one woman band based in Berlin.
“The band mixes everything with everything. But be careful”, one of the band members says,”everything doesn’t mean everything.” -”Well”, the background singer of the band adds “actually the songs are pretty much like snapshots. Mostly one-shots, no perfection. Each of them with about one hour shutter speed. Blurry and sometimes overexposed, but not reproducible.”
The band started recording their background singer’s angry teenage songs in 2006 on a crappy ten year old computer and spreaded them on myspace. (“I lost my ability to write teenage songs when I turned 20. It was absurd.”-)
The music caught the one or other shape: the lowest-lo-fi, midi-grunge, 2 angry electro songs, psychodelic, valium pop, window music and of course, what else the mysterious “alternative”. But in the beginning there is only the thought. About oddities and the abyss. And getting lost somewhere.
