Breaking hard-rock down to its simplest, most fundamental form, Sœur are a brutal, soulful assault on the senses. Bound together and battle-hardened by an experience & appreciation of the fringes of British rock music, Anya Pulver, Tina Maynard & James Collins have already found their incendiary live shows selling out in dive bars and clubs across their native South West.
First On in provincial UK rock clubs. Sharing the bill with popper-fuelled neanderthals. Fighting for payment from feckless male promoters. Handling the heckles of pissed-up lager boys from shadowed corners. Sharing thoses experiences makes you a sister; a sœur.
"It doesn’t matter who you are, we are all sisters. Music is a reminder of our innate connection to each other. When you write music with someone, you’re spilling your guts out in front of them - a display of sheer vulnerability. Being in a band is just like being in a relationship; you are exposed to the darkest parts of each other and you learn to grow together.”: Anya Pulver
With vocal lines that tangle & intertwine, riffs so substantial they’ve got their own post code, and a beat - provided by former Maybeshewill drummer James Collins - that ties everything down with industrial power, this is a sound of colossal proportions.
With the help of producer/mixer Ali Chant (PJ Harvey, Youth Lagoon) & engineer Jamie Ward, ‘No Fire’ - recorded & mixed over the course of a couple of afternoons - is a chaotic, hooky, call-to-arms that brilliantly captures the band’s coruscating live show on record.
The ‘No Fire’ video was filmed at the band’s rehearsal space in Bristol’s arts quarter Stokes Croft.
