I was quite ridiculously excited when I logged into Instagram the other night and I saw a post from actress Shoshana Bush announcing that her band (with NY DJ Frankie Inglese) SISTERMOON were on FaceBook and Twitter. I excitedly went onto each app and liked and followed the respective pages. I initially started following Bush on Twitter and Instagram because of her amazing sense of style and when I heard she was in a band, I couldn’t wait to hear what she had to offer. Yes, I may have been judging her music because of how I felt about her style (who HASN’T done that!?) and at this point I hadn’t heard anything (but OH MY GOD! Her voice!) Anyway, my judgment paid off.
Eventually, a few videos popped up on Instagram but nothing to really satiate my appetite. And then Bush linked to the band’s Soundcloud page and it was definitely a good pre-judgement. This is DEFINITELY my kind of music!
I read a description of them somewhere as being ‘a female Black Keys‘ and I can totally hear that. For some reason I also think Fleetwood Mac but that could just be me (and the Stevie Nicks like voice).
My favourite tracks off of Soundcloud are “The Medicine” and “Ballad”, but I absolutely adore the others as well.
They are officially my get your ass out of bed; you’ll be late soundtrack for the mornings.
(NOTE: SISTERMOON link will direct you to their SoundCloud page.)
(Also, the title is a lyric from “Ballad”)
