With a lo-fi start kicking in to a catchy beat and a slightly ska/pop/punk bounce 'Happy Endings' by London band Sisteray seems to be promising all things to all people.  It's the 'B' side from their latest release alongside 'A' Side 'Take It Away'.  It's an infectious floor filler guaranteed to be a favourite with their burgeoning army of fans.  If as heralded, they're on a Mod 'trip' then it's in a more 'Summer Holiday' stylee - lighter than their Scottish counterparts Modern Faces but no less listenable.  

Sisteray were formed in 2012 and consisting of lead singer and guitarist Niall Rowan, lead guitarist Daniel Connolly, drummer and brother Ryan Connolly and Bassist Michael Hanrahan. Despite being together for a relatively short space of time, the band have already managed to sell out such notable London venues as The 100 Club, The Rhythm Factory and the infamous Monto Water Rats.

Influenced by all the usual suspects - The Clash, The Cribs, Kasabian, The Who, The Rolling Stones, The Sex Pistols, The Stone Roses, The Beatles, Primal Scream, The Kinks, The Buzzcocks and contemporaries The Arctic Monkeys - Sisteray borrow licks from them all and build them into their own high energy, catchy and original tracks.

Don't miss the single launch party at The Latest in Brighton on the 28th July!  They're ably supported on the night by 5-piece 'post punk band Digo, fellow Brighton 4-piece 'psychsters' The Dates and Reading's Folk 'n' Rollers Bear & the Woods.
