Get transported to the peace-loving days of the 60s and 70s for the pre-release party of SIRES’ forthcoming album, Soul for Sale, available October 21 from Station 1 Records. Childhood friends Dylan Sires (guitar/keys/vocals), Ross Klemz (percussion/vocals) and Graham Howland (bass/vocals) have played music together for years and it shows in the tight, balanced mix of soul and seductive rock n’ roll.
Formerly known as Dylan Sires and Neighbors, the band has spent time touring in Japan, played last summer’s 80/35 Music Festival, and even opened for Mumford & Sons on the “Gentlemen of the Road” Iowa stopover in 2015.
After the release of their last album, No One, in 2014, the band decided to shorten its name and focus on their sound. Spoiler alert: it worked.
The lyrics are heartbreaking and the three-part harmonies stay with you long after you’re done listening. SIRES has a lasting impact that can’t be mimicked. If their soul is for sale, I’m first in line to buy it.
Get a sneak peak of the new album with the recently released single, “She’s Into Me,” a music video (by our own Bruce Bales of DEFT) that would make Michael Jackson proud.
Also on the night’s agenda are a fistful of regional powerhouses including Halfloves (formerly known as The Olympics), Waterloo’s TWINS and Omaha-based Eklectica. Clear your schedules because these are bands you don’t want to miss.
