Sister Speak – The Stand
Sister Speak is essentially singer/songwriter, Sherri Anne (vocals/guitar) and an ever-changing group of solid musicians, which at the moment includes Sarven Manguiat (electric guitar) and Avli Avliav (keyboards, Moog bass, and programming). The sound is a delicious blend of indie-pop, folk, and electronica that is immediately pleasing to the ear. The title track of the six-song EP by the same name, The Stand (seen/heard here) is about taking a stand on issues, particularly social issues, but never ends up too preachy or self-important. Sherri Anne’s vocals lend perfect inflection to the stories here and the music is bright and modern in every respect.
Bursting on the music scene in 2014 with the stand-out rock and blues of their debut long-player, Rise Up For Love, Sister Speak continues to expand their horizons with The Stand. The themes of both offerings are up-lifting and hope-driven and that can’t be a bad thing in this age of anger and division.
