Punk is hotting things up again and one band is about to blow up

SEPTEMBER 2ND, 2018 Steve Topple

It’s official: punk is hotting up the music scene, once again. From the IDLES‘ latest release to Cabbage, it’s time to dust off the old notion of mohawks and safety pins and embrace one of the most politically driven genres of music. And one band is about to blow up.

Meet Sisteray: punk’s hottest band?
Sisteray is a London-based four-piece punk band, featuring Niall Rowan on vocals, Michael Hanrahan on bass, Calum Landau on drums and Daniel Connolly on guitar. Formed in 2015, the group quickly shot to prominence on the live music scene. Having played the Isle of Wight, Reading and Leeds festivals, their first EP, 15 Minutes, was hailed by many as an instant classic.

Now, the band is back with a new, four-track EP, Sisteray Said which is out on 7 September. So The Canary caught up with guitarist Connolly to discuss punk, politics and the real-life ‘walking dead’…

It emerged in the UK at a time of political and social upheaval: the austerity and economic chaos of the 1970s through to Margaret Thatcher’s social scorched earth policies of the early 1980s. So, it’s unsurprising that punk and the anti-establishment, anti-system attitude that defines it is on the rise again, now. And Sisteray is emerging at the forefront of that ascension.
