Best New Artist 2013: An Interview with SISU’s Sandra Vu

December 5th, 2013
Comments Off

SISU, a Los Angeles band fronted by singer and multi instrumentalist, Sandra Vu (Dum Dum Girls, Dirty Beaches, The Raveonettes) continues to solidify their sound by incorporating hard and soft elements in their music. Vu’s ability to write and produce crafted the band’s dark, dreamy synth sound. The band recently released their debut LP entitled Blood Tears. The album was so outstanding, in fact, that they have been named mxdwn’s Best New Artist of 2013. Last year, the ladies of TEEN took the title. SISU recently performed alongside Machinedrum and Soft Metals at the Red Bull Sound Select monthly showcase at the Troubadour. Before their performance, mxdwn had the chance to speak with Sandra Vu about the debut album, Jeremy Jay and Dum Dum Girls.

A Move to Front and Center

SISU is the pet project of Sandra Vu, and one that has been on the back burner due to rigorous touring as the drummer for the Dum Dum Girls. But the debut album couldn’t be more different than the relaxed surf pop-and-roll she’s used to playing. Blood Tears is midnight black, a spin cycle, a post-punk buffet.
