The day has finally arrived: the long-awaited new album I Am By Day from Glaswegian band Sister John is here, and it’s everything you’ve been looking for in an indie project. Offering a folk-infused soundscape, the group experiments with electronic, indie-rock and lush lo-fi textures to create a refreshingly original style. Complete with silky crooning and empowering lyrics, this shimmering new record will resonate with fans of every genre.
Sister John consists of multi-instrumentalists and songwriters Jonathan Lilley, Sophie Pragnell, Heather Phillips and Amanda McKeown. They made their debut in 2017 with the album Returned From Sea, which received support from BBC Radio Scotland and BBC Radio 6. The band launched their eponymous second record in 2019 with a sold out gig at Glasgow’s Poetry Club, before making their first London appearance with a sell-out show at the Sebright Arms. Released today via Last Night From Glasgow, I Am By Day might just mark their best album to date, and the future looks bright for this promising group.
