“A revolution without dancing is not a revolution worth having" is a quote famously attributed to Author Emma Goldman. These words could be the motto of Emily Westman and Andrew Vait; better known as pop duo SISTERS.
Wait Don't Wait (October, 2017) is the band’s second full-length album – and their first release via Tender Loving Empire. Their debut LP, Drink Champagne (February, 2017) was met with a confluence of, “How were you able to release such a happy record right now?” and, “Thank you so much for releasing such a happy record right now!”; sentiments that are only amplified, strengthened and refined on Wait Don't Wait.
With the release of Wait Don't Wait, SISTERS are not only presenting another pop record full of bangers that demands repeat listens – they are also methodically working toward creating a world that is safe for everyone. The thing called hatred; the thing called violence; the things that threaten life and love cannot survive in the face of true joy. SISTERS deliver unrestrained joy, and it is desperately needed right now. The world has been waiting, but it needs wait no more.
