Sister Grizzly was birthed out of Oakland, CA and is a duo giving their audiences sweet, passionate grunge rock. This release, Women of Colour, acts as an EP and a prelude to a wider collection of songs that the band plans to release this summer.
The track “Molecules” is just brimming with passion and is really all about “YOU!” The song is a pure ballad of love and a love that reaches so deep down into the protagonist’s molecules. On this track the vocals really take the lead, the long drawn out “you,” from the lyrics “never had a home, where I felt so much at home like I did when I was sleeping next to you.” The percussion keeps this song running along and as it goes on I start to miss whoever this mystery girl is that the vocalist is harping about, the passion is that real.
The next track “Azaleas” begins with a steep baseline that catches you right from the beginning, the lyrics “why can’t you be what I want, what I want, “ are repeated over and over again with a welling passion that only grows as the song moves along. It makes you think of all the crappy relationships you’ve ever had and makes you wish you had this song to sing at the top of your lungs.
The last song on the EP titled “Hush” is a syrupy, slowed-down rock ballad that gently sweeps you away to a romantic land of mist and roses. The vocals on this track are much different than the style on the previous songs and the guitars and percussion have also morphed to be more mellow and softer. This is a great song to close the EP Women of Colour; “close your eyes, it’s alright.”
Sister Grizzly gives their listeners the perfect set of passionate rock songs to forget about the pains of love and life. The EP is well recorded and each song has a different and refreshing vibe to it keeping the listeners’ attention throughout.
