By: Tom Roth Visit www.sisterstheband.com, and you might think you've stumbled onto the official website for IFC's hit show. Portlandia. Listen to the band's falsetto vocals on their track "Back 2 U" and you might be fooled into thinking you've dialed in some tUnE-yArDs. However, you'd be wrong on both counts.
SISTERS, praised by Chris Walla of Death Cab for Cutie as "deliciously fucked up", is comprised of Emily Westman and Andrew Vait and their bottomless bag of synth tricks. Hipsters, self-proclaimed or otherwise, will dig SISTERS' style, sound, and freshness: Seattle's community-run Capitol Hill Block Party was all but their very own debutante ball and the PNW imports debuted their first EP, Diamonds of Gold at Seattle's Neumos on September 23rd. Stream Sisters "Buzzard" and "Back 2 U" below.
