In just four short blasts of garage-punk, Sissy's debut EP makes a strong feminist statement with humour and catchy songs - but true to the serious issues, there's real anger behind the ironic detachment.
Taking feelings of crippling sadness and finding beauty in them by robbing them of their permanence, instead making them into something formal and transient.
It’s a shoegaze cocktail that’s been spiked with acid. This is a quite brilliant EP that announces Elastic Sleep as the real deal.
Karen Cowley, Saoirse Duane and Caoimhe Barry have a long and prosperous musical voyage ahead of them. ‘The Widow Knows EP’ is a fine place from which to launch it.
From intelligent to cheeky raps, the powerful to velvet-soft vocals and the groovy brass and strident strings; it's a musical lucky bag. One you can't resist dipping into.
