Piskie Sits-Stick and Twist


Wakefield based band Piskie Sits return with their third album, Stick and Twist, courtesy of the local independent label, Philophobia Music.

The band have featured on here in the past and they still no disappoint with their spectacular brand of lo-fi indie music. Opening track If You Listen To Me kicks off with a beat that entices you into the track before hitting you with some emotive vocals on the chorus that gets this record off to the perfect start. The melodic Guitar Anti-Hero is one of the bands more poppy moments, a tune that has a swooning feel to it, while the rousing Doctors & Nurses quickly followed by the beautifully introspective Ffactions shows the versatility of the talented Piskie Sits.

There is a distinct lack of filler on this record which makes it a thoroughly enjoyable listen which is highlighted on tracks like Knowing You, Knowing You which is rife with catchy hooks that couldn’t fail to get anyone moving. The sublimely understated Who Do You Love leaves you with a sense of yearning, which is then contrasted by the rip roaring Us Three that features a riff that goes straight through you. Stick and Twist really is a brilliant album that passes far too quickly, however Piskie Sits do manage to bring proceedings to a wonderful conclusion with a lovely subtle touch on Been Lucky.
