Mastering Sissy “Gave Birth To A Mum” EP.

“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.”

Mastering Sissy “EP”.

Taken from Nialler9:

“‘You know this battle can only be won if we are on our knees.’ Unidentified priest.

So begins the short debut EP from new Dublin rock band Sissy (featuring members of Fag Enablerz and Putrefaction), before launching into ‘Sail & Rail’, a song about going to England to get an abortion with Enya which steals the melody from her song ‘Orinoco Flow’. “Stick your dick in me so I can go on holidays / 2 Obstetricians and a G.P / won’t tell me I’m not going on holidays,” the band sing to a lo-fi bockety catchy rock arrangement cheerily.

The 11-minute EP is heavy on the sarcasm but with a realistic feminist motivation. ‘No Mickey On The Mouse’ is similarly humorous in its delivery and anti-patriarchal in its outlook – a singalong song for kicking against the pricks delivered with a potent garage-rock shuffle. Ditto ‘Nothing’ – “nothing tastes as shit as getting treated like nothing feels.”

It’s a short release but Sissy have lots of character, plenty to say and funny and fun ways to say them.”
