Now that SXSW 2007 is in the books, there are still a few bands from the festival I would like to feature. Instead of posting random, second hand and mostly painful accounts of the event (ok ok, I'm jealous I couldn't attend this year) as it happened, I will take some time and spread things out a bit. Plenty of you, like myself, who read about music might be suffering from Post Traumatic SXSW Blog Reading Disorder at this point. MML took it easy on you. Today's featured artist did perform in Austin, Texas this year and is one I would have loved to experience live there. On this track, the vocals are an obvious standout from the start and, when combined with the accompanying band, could probably best be described as 80s retro pop in all of the best ways. After a third and fourth listen to this song, it was clearly embedded in my brain and up next for a place on the blog. Hopefully, you have your fun (or at least dancing) shoes on and can understand how very cool this song is. Let's get to the links...shall we?
Sissy Wish is primarily the music project of Siri Wålberg from Bergen, Norway. The official Sissy Wish website is viewable but under construction for now so you will need to visit the Sissy Wish MySpace page for additional information and more of this great music. The track you are listening to is part of the brand new March 5 release Beauties Never Die which was recorded at famed Bergen based Duper Studios. The band's upcoming string of local/regional tour dates will commence April 19 at the Stavanger venue Checkpoint Charlie. Finally, there is also a Youtube Video of the song Float from the most recent recording sessions for the new release...
