There is an uncharted intimacy held within the blushing waves of Sisters. music. The Brooklyn band – conceived by Hannah Pruzinsky and Ceci Sturman and later fleshed out by the addition of James Chrisman – dwell in deep, dimly lit spaces, where their voices caress and collide like light refracting off hidden diamonds. And it is perhaps the interplay of their voices against their wide eyed, cinematic folk that lends them this sense of intimacy.
But on latest single, Hideaway, there are other factors at play. One guitar is joined by another, and then another until it is impossible to pick them apart, but by the song’s rushing climax you wouldn’t want to if you could. Hideaway plays out like a safe space, a secret space, and ultimately one you want to retreat to over and over.
