Be seduced by the irresistable songs of the Sirens
The Girls From Newcastle, the toast of Japanese Clubs, Heatseakers on US Radio, showing that 3 is the magic number! Girls and Boys, cue Sirens – the finest girl group you’re about to discover. New Album: 3 Due March 28, 2011 on Kitchenware Records
After conquering Asia, storming New York and LA, ruling the dance floors back here in the UK for the past seven years and on the verge of releasing their third album, you might be forgiven for thinking that this sexy three piece girl group from Newcastle are already a household name here in the UK. Well in fact these three Geordie lasses are probably the finest act you’ve yet to be properly acquainted with.
Seven years ago, the feisty three known as Sirens took the unusual step for an all girl-act of signing to the bespoke Newcastle indie label Kitchenware. For those that know it, Kitchenware is the stuff of Geordie legend. Still home to local, then global heroes Prefab Sprout and more recently Editors it was as pivotal to the region’s music as Factory Records was to Manchester and Sub Pop was to Seattle. In other words, in the record company rulebook, this certainly would never have been expected.
Two albums later, a career of success and memories, Karina, Katherine and Lea, aka Sirens are to release their third album simply entitled 3. If you’re not familiar that’s because their music has primarily been enjoyed in the cool clubs around the country, where disco kids and a loyal gay following regularly take Sirens to the top of the Club Charts. A labour of love, this album is no “Pop By Numbers”. They may be a girl group but they are certainly incomparable.
Working closely with Danish production/song writing team DeeKay, (P.Diddy, JLS, Sugababes), up and coming New Yorker Eric Sanicola, long time collaborators D.C. Joseph as well as international hit merchant OD Hunt (Leona Lewis) and Skint Records’ Midfield General, the album has a hard, gritty and honest feel. Femininity at it’s finest, these Geordie girls hold no prisoners when it comes to their musical direction. As artists they remain true to their remit, unique amongst girl groups – throw out that rulebook, reach for those stilettos and crank it up!
Hell that’s why rock photographer Kevin Westenberg did the photo campaign, and the girls have personally employed renowned graffiti artist ‘Hush’ to design the album artwork.
To paraphrase Nicki Minaj: “Superheroes by night, singers, by day”!
Most record companies would be dialling for help now.
