Sisteray ~ Algorithm Prison

Sisteray are an exciting,  four piece band from London who burst onto the scene in 2016. The bands made up of: Niall, Dan, Mick and Callum. They’ve just released their first sing of 2018 ‘Algorithm Prison‘ which is available on YouTube and Soundcloud via another London upstart, Vallance Records.

I’ve listened to all of their previous music and I have to say this is by far their best song so far and the crowds are going to go wild when they perform it live. It’s obvious this song is full of protest and rebellion to the system we are currently living in. This song reminds me of when Punk music first came onto the scene as they were also fighting the system. It also has that indie feel to it as well. The beginning of the song starts off with a strong guitar solo accompanied by booming hits of the drum.

This song is extremely relatable to our generation of teens and young adults right now.; we live in the digital world where everything revolves around social media and online purchases to the point where you don’t actually have to leave your house as you can communicate and buy things from the comfort of your own home, how messed up is that? Continuing on from this point, the end of the song has Niall howling “We ain’t your target market, I ain’t your target market” which is funny because that’s what the digital world is based on, target marketing; but it’s true, we aren’t all your target market haha. He also belts out some other significant statements: “Seems like we’re a generation of rejects” (which is exactly how most people my age feel right now, we don’t fit in and a lot of us aren’t accepted), “Education is a luxury that only the rich can afford” (another truth about this day and age as education is expensive and a lot of people have been put off furthering themselves because they can’t afford it and will end up in debt) among many others.

I love this song and have had it on repeat since hearing it. They are the new day punks in my opinion that have something to say and aren’t afraid to say it. Look out for their EP which will be coming out in May.
