Sisu, the synth rock side project of Sandra Vu of the Dum Dum Girls, will be dropping their first album, Blood Tears, on September 17. The week before, you can catch Sisu at Johnny Brenda’s on September 9. This week, they released the single “Return the Favor,” which starts off as a dark, electro-synth tune and blossoms into a lush, catchy melody.
Sisu will be touring with Montreal-based Dirty Beaches. The lo-fi experimental and minimalist musician released a ton of new music these past few months: the Drifters/Love is the Devil double LP, and the more piano-based, classic sounding instrumental Hotel EP.
