Big Sis is the new project of Nathan Paris-Hernandez, a songwriter who's assembled a loose collective of musicians that include members of other well known local acts like L.A. Witch and Pastilla. On their latest single, "Way Back", the band exhibits a more robust and nuanced version of melody, noise and rock that resonates with a nonchalant, yet rough-around-the edges beauty. But there's also some intricately knotty guitars in display, honing in a slackened mood with its loungy grooves and psychedelia undertones.
"Way Back" is featured on Big Sis' upcoming self-titled effort, which will be out digitally and on cassette via ¡DAME! on October 21. You can catch them at Redwood Bar & Grill tomorrow, October 6, alongside Globelamp and Pipe Dreams. The band is also playing a record release show at ¡DAME! Studio on the day of its release. - Juan Rodríguez
