Sound Of The Sirens
Mesmerising harmonies from Devon
Hailing from the picturesque city of Exeter in Devon these three beautiful girls with stunning voices weave a blend of acoustic guitars and evocative harmonies that could lure any self respecting mariner to his doom.
Here is a group which are totally in tune with my belief in getting their product out there on the internet. Any google search of their name brings up a greeat swathe of websites about the band, from social media through their own website to forums and blogs.
It is wholly appropriate that I should list the main ones here.
- Official website with videos, audio, gig listings, contact details etc
- Facebook with all the usual stuff and more
- Reverb Nation audio, video, mailing list street team etc
- Youtube (14 videos as of Jan 2012)
- Lemonrock Gig listing site
- Myspace just in case anybody still uses it.
Describing music is a thankless task. They pretty much sum it up perfectly in their own publicity when they say “3 girls, 2 guitars, 1 stomp box”
If you wonder what a stomp box is well it is a sort of square of something on the floor and you stomp on it to achieve a sound something like a bass drum.
The two guitars work well together but the best bit is naturally the three female vocals which are all mellifluously silky* and intricately harmonised.
*(a metaphor, since silk would be ruined if you covered it in honey).
This Youtube video is their song “Shoelaces” which is the first song of theirs that I heard. It is a live recording and the audience noise is a bit intrusive but you get the idea. You can also hear them on Federal radio if you request it any Thursday night.
Do check them out if you are a fan of acoustic music and if you are not, still check them out because they are way better than many of their kind.
