Long-Lost SISTERS

This Seattle pop-indie band just wants you to drink Champagne and dance.

November 4, 2016

Emily Westman and Andrew Vait are “sisters” in every sense of the word. They are both old friends, musicians and even share the same age (32).

They formed the band SISTERS in 2014 after both moved back to Seattle and reconnected as friends. According to Westman and Vait, the name SISTERS represents their desire to bring people together.

They recently released a music video for their new single, “BUCK,” which features them approaching people in the Capitol Hill neighborhood and asking them to don headphones, listen to the song and have fun. The video is a vibrant sampling of people of different ages, cultures and genders all doing the same thing — joyfully dancing to the contagious beat of SISITERS’ pop-indie style of music.

Producer Megan Murnane sat down with Westman and Vait and discussed the changing face of Seattle, drinking Champagne and why it is more important than ever to dance. SISTERS is touring the West Coast in November. For tour dates and more information about the band visit www.sisterstheband.com
