Sisteray Short Info

SISTERAY are rocking. Known for their incendiary live performances, with the release of their '15 Minutes' EP in the spring of 2017 they have received widespread praise for their songs and potential

"Exciting, full of attitude, educated and anarchic; and because it’s the best new EP by an emerging band in years, with 15 Minutes Sisteray may hold the future of British guitar music in the palm of their hand just like Oasis and the Arctics before them" God Is In The TV (April 2017)

"Sisteray are a band of huge potential, their massive sound makes them one of our favourite bands in the capital right now!" Eudaimonia (live review April 2017)

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 Strokes, The Libertines and Arctic Monkeys and influences such as The Smiths, Velvet Underground, The Clash and more recently Savages, Sleaford Mods and Slaves. 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.


"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

''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
