Sisteray Short Info

Sisteray are rocking. December 2015 has seen them selling out their first headline London show and with the results of recent studio sessions with producer Rory Attwell (The Vaccines/Palma Violets) in the can, a new double 'A' side single 'A Wise Man Says' / 'Back To Yours' will be released early 2016.

SISTERAY, songwriters Niall Rowan (vocals) and Dan Connolly (guitar) along with Marco Polo (drums) and Mick Hanrahan (bass guitar) have set out their intention to re-write the indie guitar rule book.

Sisteray came together out of their shared love for bands such as The Smiths, Velvet Underground, The Clash and The Replacements. This is proven in the upbeat melodies and lyrical observations of 21st century Britain, combined with high-octane live performances that have been key to making their live shows unmissable. They have recently built up their live audience through a series of #guerillagigs, using everything within their means to persuade promoters to let them have a first on slots at shows big and small, witnessed by Subculture describing:
"The night began with Sisteray playing yet another spontaneous Camden show, their effortless guitar riffs and high energy proves that the boys are a force to be reckoned with".

This was followed by an insistence that they were allowed to curate their own headline show, where they chose the bands and DJs, it was a sell-out success and was followed but memorable shows across the UK, including at Isle of Wight and Leeds Festivals.

The bands belief and passion in their music, as well as their strong political views has been seldom seen since the days of The Clash; with Dan recently asked to appear on primetime BBC News, ITV and The Independent to voice his views on the recent Syria debate.

Word is beginning to spread in the likes of BBC Radio 1, Radio X, Fresh on the Net, Louder Than War, Artrocker, BBC 6 Music, Subculture, Gigslutz, Time Out and The Londonist and in another statement of intent, the band have renamed their blog 'Sisteray - The Road To Reading Festival 2016'.


"Gnarly... sounds like the golden age of 2000s UK indie" - Phil Taggart, BBC Radio 1

“...the band radiate the sense of Men On A Mission who engage both with their audience and the wider world beyond Camden” – Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music

"(2015) is gonna be a big year for Sisteray" - Simon Raymonde (Amazing Radio/Bella Union)

''BUTT-KICKIN' NEW PUNK'' - Chris Hawkins, BBC 6 Music

"Punk rockers causing a buzz in their native London, sold out shows aplenty, and with a Rory Attwell (The Vaccines/Palma Violets) produced EP in the can and due for release soon, expect that to swell" - Fred Perry Subculture
