Sirens Sister

Sirens Sister, Echoes From the Ocean Floor, 2007

Sirens Sister’s pulsing melodic metaphors conducted by vocalist Zach Davidson, coupled with an instrumental courtship via visionaries Leif Anderson, Ben Libay, and Jeff Rouse have developed a revolutionary and romantic hiatus in their introductory album: Echoes From the Ocean Floor.

Sirens Sister has a little more sway in her step and takes more time to do her hair in the morning than former frontier—Vendetta Red—of members Zach, Leif, and Jeff—who have left behind most of the busted lips and soothing stories of rape for sometimes sappy love songs beefed with impressive and well-produced music that resembles a new era of rock in the Northwest with Seattle’s Sirens Sister at the head. Each track is simulated differently although conjointly characterized by a similar, softly articulated harmony edged with aggressive drumming, alongside noticeably metal chords and more whammy.

The album is jumpstarted by a busty guitar riff—premeditating stunning live performances that will heat a venue with sweaty spectators. Although Zach’s lyrics are occasionally corny—he bites back with the same vibrant and carefully constructed chimes that turn malicious scenarios of car crashes and cocaine addictions into elegant affairs.

Sirens Sister has very little to prove—since they have already reached success—plus the advantage of previous experience recording and performing will sell CD’s and tickets by word-of-mouth and a few snappy suits alone. An interesting comparison, however, involves past Vendetta Red guitarist, Burke Thomas, father of current project, Pris; and his 2004 release—The Kiss Off. The tracks “Hold On” and “Echoes” produced by Sirens Sister possess similar characteristics involving lyrical structure and use of repetition, as well as electronic modifications of sound—corresponding to those utilized in a typical Pris track. The similarities themselves are not surprising, but the possible development of a grunge-pop regime lifting Seattle music back from the early 2000’s lifeless and mellow emo parade is worth following.

With that said, it is in your best interest to invest in Sirens Sister and see where their tour takes them next.
