Findlay - Your Sister

Rocking an S&M themed video to match its sexually charged lyrics, Your Sister is the debut single from female-fronted rockers Findlay. Vocalist Natalie Findlay spits lines like ‘Second chance, fuck romance’ in a howl reminiscent of The Kills’ Alison Mosshart over a raw garage blues. The opening riff is basically Jean Genie by David Bowie and there’s a cheeky nod to T-Rex’s ‘Hot Love’ later on but the basic vibe is just a squalling solo and a vinyl fixation away from Elephant-era White Stripes. A swaggering first statement that buzzes and crackles with energy, the song sounds like it was designed to be belted out live. With just two tracks available to listen to online it’s hard to tell whether Findlay have the madcap creativity to make something really original but for now this is thrilling stuff.
