First thing's first - there are no bad tracks here, it's not an album to pick through downloading one track at a time. Get it all, you'll swim in the beauty of it for years to come. What's to tell you? Siskin's basically a two-piece female combo that match voices in that once-in-a-lifetime way that resonates down your spine and can carry you through whichever emotion their lyrics demand. On songs like "Find A Better Life" they're almost playful, and you end up singing and smiling along. On powerhouse epics of skin-stripping rawness like Traffic In My Mind, they'll make you ache to be understood. Storytelling tracks like John Is In The Basement are delicately, humanely rendered to take you into other lives. Harder-kicking musical tracks like Oblivion and Strangers Who Ask will stay with you for the moments when the lyrics punch their studs of "Wow...awesome thought" through the power of the chords.

Bottom line, this is both beautiful and complex, powerful and fun, musically intelligent and lyrically impressive. You're gonna hear an awful lot about Siskin in the next year. Catch 'em now - you won't regret it.

This is an album worth playing from a band worth supporting. Siskin (Kirsty Newton and Galen Ayers) are two smart, creative, hard-working musicians with plenty of talent and star potential. They write neat, interesting and creative songs, and somehow manage to stay commercial and listenable while injecting just enough of their own individual flair and creativity to stand out from the crowd. There's certainly plenty of talent on offer to anyone who appreciates well-crafted popular songs: strong vocals, melodic harmonies, interesting lyrical twists and plenty of variety. If you want upbeat and feisty, they can do that, but if you prefer laid back and thoughtful, that's on offer as well. It's fair to say they are still growing, still learning their craft and still developing their sound. There's nothing here (yet) that will trouble the top of the charts or become the nation's favourite hum along track, but give them time. This is a very assured and successful set of songs from two women who have the potential to become chart fixtures, if they want to go in that direction, or national treasures of the indie scene if they don't. Either way, a talent worth supporting and a band to watch. More please!

This album has a mixture of broody rock, gentle folk, and some other genres too. It has been a while since new female talent has hit the UK music scene, and I think Siskin may well be the sound of this decade.
It's a blend of guitar and keyboards, and two great voices that come along with the package. And it has a little bit for everyone. If you get time to read the lyrics too, they convey some kind of meaning as well " even though you touched me there" can only be penned by a sensual woman..

But it is less sensual music and more cerebral. I am looking forward to the follow up album!
