A mix of The White Stripes and Royal Blood, Sister Psychosis share new track Beside Myself
The Duothe Sister Psychosis are a Canadian and British export consisting of Amanda May and Chops. The new track is, however, an ode to those London nightclubs and messy nights out that haven’t taken place in recent months.
Beside Myself seems to have many influences upon first listen from, The White Stripes to The Stroke however what’s also clear is that the duo has their own distinct methods and sounds when it comes to creating a record. The sharpness of the guitar, gritty vocals and sounds of the techno club scene work together to create a confident track that’s full of life and screams Rock and Roll.
It seems lead singer Amanda May also took influence from a Manchester powerhouse where Amanda found herself sneaking into none other than Noel Gallagher’s gig and coming face to face with the Oasis idol, Beside Myself was then penned from this very encounter. Talking on the song and that Noel Gallagher exchange Amanda says:
“The lyrics were inspired by my encounter with Noel Gallagher meeting him in Toronto. I got to meet him, hang in his dressing room and watch the gig from side stage so I was pretty happy. He was such a cool dude. So friendly and humble. When he introduced himself to me I found it so bizarre. Like of course I know who you are mate! A few months later, I had just finished my contract as a PR girl at an artist management company in Toronto and had nothing to do, so I flew to the U.K. on my own and just sorta drifted around. No accommodation booked. Didn’t know anyone. Just on the hunt for adventure and I got it… I just did a bit of a ‘Madchester’ / Brit pop tour that I found online and that flat was one of the stops people recommended.Amanda May
Beside Myself is the perfect balance of influences and creative development whilst Sister Psychosis are undoubtedly on to bigger things.
Beside Myself is out now on Creation 23.
