SLED ISLAND 2013: THIS HISSES

Thursday 13th, June 2013 / 23:24

This-Hisses-Black-Background-Horizontal-1.2MBSURF NOIR FROM THE PRAIRIES REACHES NEW, CINEMATIC HEIGHTS

Blaring in from Winnipeg like a jet fighter, This Hisses have been on fire. Noted for their raw, aggressive power and the dynamic, dramatic vocal style, they report being influenced as much by classic cinema as they are by surf and rockabilly. The band clearly acts as their own reference group with every promo photo, album cover, or stage show costuming reflecting a blend of over-the-top rock-and-roll glamour and a sepia-toned homage to the golden era of film.

The striking Julia Ryckman fronts the group; a rock and roll chanteuse of epic proportions who seems like a walking contrast of classic feminine class and red-hot rock and roll fire as she wails on her bass guitar. Her vocal style seems to bounce between quasi-classical operatics and soul-rattling moans denoting a sensual vulnerability. Backing her up on guitar is Pat Short; a man who could make a crowd shed a shredding-induced tear and drummer JP Perron who has been described as an “acrobatic bludgeoner of drums.” Their sophomore album, Anhedonia, was released via Winnipeg’s own Transistor 66 Records early last February and, since then, the band has been touring vigorously, spreading their gospel with some notable success. Earlier this month, it was announced that after 13 weeks on the national charts, the record had reached #14, its highest position yet. With no sign of slowing down, be sure to catch these crazy cats as they show the world what rock and roll is capable of being, one stunned witness at a time.

Catch This Hisses on June 20 at The Palamino (upstairs).
