She Sir - Rival Party
Guitars, guitars, wonderful guitars. On Rival Party they chime, jangle, and layer over each other, riding a pulsating rhythm section, and the result is aural euphoria. Austin band She Sir has been known as a dreampop and shoegaze band, and those elements remain dominant on this album. But there also is that aforementioned robust rhythm section and many uptempo songs, so to our ears this band has stepped outside the lines to great effect. With ten songs in a bit over a half hour, Rival Party is like a pleasant daydream in the sun, and one you try it, you may find yourself reworking your schedule for more frequent naps.
She Sir are Russell Karloff, Matthew Grusha, Jeremy Cantrell, and David Nathan. Rival Party is out now via Shelflife Records.
