Our Artist of the Week #23, Sisika, are a four piece from South London, featuring Georgia Duncan on guitar and voice, her sister Katie on keys and voice, David Coughlin on bass and Lucy Katz on drums. Combining close, earthy harmonies with warm guitar, melodic bass lines, minimal synth sounds and subtle drums they create intricate, freely arranged songs with a rootsy soul folk sound.
Last summer they played festivals including Glastonbury, Kendal Calling, How The Light Gets In (Hay-on-Wye), The Pumphouse Aldeburgh and Merge on Southbank – and gigs around London for the last year include at The Slaughtered Lamb (New Roots Promotions), Kansas Smitty’s, Jamboree and Queens Head Islington.
“Amazingly delicate, hair-stand-up-on-your-neck harmonies. Ominous and beautiful. A distinct voice” The Fader
