    Taken from 'Hello' EP released February 25th on Merok Records. Pre order now from Rough Trade:

    Mozart's Sister – the solo project of Montreal's Caila Thompson-Hannant she started back in early 2011 – delights in making glittering, celebratory pop with an underlying strain of brittle, claustrophobic energy. By marrying the accessible with the decidedly off-kilter, she displays a similar vigour and charisma to female contemporaries Grimes and tUnE-yArDs, both of whom too learned their trade among the same fertile hometown scene as her.

    Following her introduction with 2011’s self-recorded and released Dear Fear EP comes the Hello EP, her first official release with celebrated label Merok, famed for previously unearthing the likes of Crystal Castles, Klaxons and SALEM, having stepped in to take her to the wider world.

    This new set presents a sense-confounding vision of angular 21st century pop. Eponymous EP opener, ‘Mozart’s Sister’, updates the luxurious 80’s sound of Cindy Lauper and Kylie Minogue with trance haunted digital expanses. ‘Don’t Leave It To Me’ pits bubbly synths and belting vocals against a spectral undercurrent, all the while etching itself into the mind with cunningly infectious melody. Elsewhere, ‘Contentedness’ sees chugging bass and sparkling guitars fade into a wistful metropolitan hymn, while EP closer ‘Single Status’ is simultaneously manically exuberant and poignantly piercing, deftly articulating an ambiguous hyper-emotional landscape.

    Currently in London finishing her next release with Tom Morris, Mozart’s Sister will play her first shows outside North America in February to coincide with the EP’s release.

    Feb 11th - Headline show @ Shacklewell Arms
    Feb 14th - Supporting Dan Deacon @ Village Underground
