Emily, Khaya, and Leah met at a New Year’s party on the lower east side in New York City. Their self-released debut album, aptly named, I Met My Band At A New Year’s Party, draws upon themes of youth, heartbreak, and the quiet power behind vulnerability. It features infectious hooks, virtuosic synth lines, and unique drum melodies. the producer, Khaya, takes inspiration from acts like Chairlift, Charli XCX, Grimes, and St. Vincent; and feels a deep connection to the soundscape she’s created for each of the songs.
This band is sheer, unadulterated energy. the connection between them is undeniable, and palpable in the air when they perform. Since meeting on New Year’s of 2019, they have played 50+ sweaty, intense shows all around Brooklyn, Manhattan, and the East Coast. The purpose of their shows is to create a moment, to hone the magic that happens between audience and performer when music is going on. It is cathartic, exhilarating, and intimate. Plus, Leah falls in love with someone in the audience at every show, which adds an element of surprise.
Kid Sistr is the all-women bubblegum rock trio that the worlds needs right now. Members Sabel (guitar) Sara (bass) and Becca (drums) turn Trader Joe’s gluten free pizza and shitty ex-boyfriends into guitar-pop ear candy that steals the hearts of their friends and foes alike. Their focus on femmes supporting femmes, finding the humor in heartbreak, and honestly representing all facets of femininity makes Kid Sistr undeniable to the riot kids of Tik Tok and Taylor’s Versions. When you think Kid Sistr, think Twilight but with Alice as the main character. Think Y2K childhood babysitter who straightened your hair and let you borrow her mascara. Think elbow to elbow with your five best friends in the bathroom mirror getting ready for the house party. Think burst of teary laughter that comes in the midst of a deep cry. Think ultimate mix of friendship, finesse, folk and Fergie. Think of your next favorite band.
