No Sister got started in 2014 in Brisbane by Mino and Tiarney, who later moved to Melbourne and teamed up with Murray and Siahn.
We released our debut self-titled LP in August 2016, which was also self-produced and self-released. We're likely to have a second album out late 2017.
Reviews of our debut self-titled album:
"Throughout the record, you often get the impression that the guitars are trying to converse with the lead vocal, particularly on serious highlight Portrait In A Rearview Mirror. The guitars sort of slide up and down and up again, trying to fit themselves into the conversation as gently as possible until they just give up and start going in another direction entirely. Each song on the album works like this – they’re populated by disparate rhythmic and melodic elements that all work in their own individual way, but all seem to indirectly come together to create an intricate, complicated machine."
- Joe Saxby, 4ZZZ
"I have been a massive fan of no-wave acolytes No Sister since they burst on to the Brisbane scene back in 2013. Their sudden rise and seeming implosion was the stuff of minor legend, the stuff we didn't think we would see again. But they were not dead - Mino and Tiarney merely moved to Melbourne, roped in some more heathens, and now have released in my mind the best Australian album of the year. Their self-titled debut is nothing short of mind-bendingly brilliant. The thing about the band that has been difficult to describe to others is that there is no half-hearted aping or hacksmithery here - they are earnest about their influences, astute in their constructions and desultory in their deconstructions."
- Brendan Telford, Sonic Masala
"Late last year I somehow missed the Melbourne via Brisbane band No Sister‘s live-wire self-titled LP release. The eight track album is twisted, post-punk in the shape of Total Control, Preoccupations or Protomartyr. Had we not missed the release, the closing track ‘Passing The Divide‘ would’ve made our Top 100 end of year list."
- Marcus Rimondini, Ripe Music
"Driving back from picking up some fish & chips, ususally sneak a few chips on the drive back but was so into this album on the car stereo I forgot to pinch some chips... glowing review"
