New Audio: Los Angeles-based act Sibling Return with a Radio-Friendly Yet Bittersweet New Single

If you’ve been frequenting this site over the past few months, you may have come across a couple of posts on the somewhat mysterious Los Angeles, CA-based electro pop duo Sibling. Now you may recall that the duo received quite a bit of buzz with the release of their debut single “Easy,” and they followed it up with “Westside,” a single that had the duo paired a sparse production consisting of shimmering cascades of synths, an anthemic hook and pop belter vocals in a radio friendly song that swooned with a bittersweet longing. “Revolve,” which quickly followed may arguably be the most dramatic and cinematic song they’ve released as they paired a production featuring twinkling piano keys, undulating synths and swirling electronics with sultry pop star vocals.

The duo’s latest single “Rearview” will further cement the duo’s reputation for crafting earnest songs with anthemic, larger-than-life hooks and while sonically bearing an uncanny resemblance to the likes of Katy Perry, Sia and others as the song’s radio-friendly production features swirling electronics, stomping boom-bap drums and neon bright synths; however, despite the radio-friendly sound, the song possesses a bittersweet ache at its core, as the song’s narrator focuses on an desperate and unrequited love with a close friend — the sort in which the narrator is torn between the hurt of a love that can never be, the closeness that they have and the cherished memories they’ve made.
