Walthamstow indie rockers Sisteray, release their new recording project 15 Minutes, via Vallance Records on April 14. The release takes its inspiration from the famous Andy Warhol quote, "In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes". Produced and mixed by Rory Attwell (Test Icicles, The Vaccines, Palma Violets) at Lightship 95, East London, at exactly ‘15 minutes’ of music over five songs, it showcases Sisteray’s knack for effortless guitar riffs that burst with tuneful attitude.
Dan Connolly (guitar) adds, “Now more than ever, people seem to be given 15 minutes and 15 minutes only. It's not an album and it’s not a single. It's simply a statement about the times we are living in”. Coming together through their shared love for bands such as The Smiths, The Clash, The Kinks and The Buzzcocks, Sisteray also reflect more contemporary influences including Slaves and Sleaford Mods.
Since their formation in 2014, Sisteray have been bringing their punk ethos to sold out venues up and down the country, performing pop-up guerrilla gigs, organising their own club night ‘Welcome to the Monkey House’ where they book the bands, promote the gig and often DJ, and have played roof raising sets at Camden Rocks and the Isle of Wight and Leeds festivals.
Upbeat melodies and observations of 21st century Britain show a band not afraid to voice their disaffection towards the establishment and political elite, so much so, that Connolly was asked to appear on BBC News and ITV along with The Independent, to voice his views on the recent Syria debate. Sisteray were also recently invited to perform at the 40th Anniversary of Rock Against Racism.
