Cambridge Analytica… Data farming… The Information Age… We’re all caught in an ‘Algorithm Prison’. The new track from London’s most exciting new band Sisteray is another belting, intelligent, and timely statement from the four-piece – out through another important London upstart, Vallance Records, this April.
If last year’s 15 Minutes EP from the group gave us a glimpse of what these guys are capable of, then their new material shows that promise being fulfilled, and then some. ‘Algorithm Prison’ is a precursor to their best work yet, set to follow in EP form later this May. “We ain’t your target market” howls singer Niall Rowan as they rail against the digital world we’re in, what we’ve become, what we’re doing with it. Oh, and it even features Pete Townshend’s own guitar, because of course it does, that’s how these guys roll.
Sisteray release ‘Algorithm Prison’ through Vallance Records this April, with a new EP set to swiftly follow in late spring. The band also have a series of live dates coming up, including Camden Rocks, The Great Escape Festival, and a headline show at London’s 100 Club later in the year.
