SISSY "Gave Birth to a Mum" 7"
Limited to 299 Copies with insert and download code. Dublin's Sissy release their debut EP 'Gave Birth to a Mum' and it's a stunning opening salvo. The raw and stripped back garage style recording and production just adds to the excitement. The music twists and bounces whilst the lyrics are modern femminist manifestos. The sound mixes Sleater Kinney and Julie Ruin and could have easily been on Kill Rock Stars if recorded twenty years ago. One of the four tracks is a Blitz song 'Attack'. The lyrics include "Freedom to fight / Your freedom to choose". It probably wasn't a pro choice song to begin with but they've appropriated it into their repertoire._
