Bio

“Sirens was born in a dark, cold warehouse, amps dimed. I brought the bones of the song to the band and spent the whole session feeling like I was underwater. Even now, singing the lyrics I feel like I’m gasping for air. I’m a libra, we don’t usually write songs like this”.

Rach Brennan & The Pines have been born into the world kicking and screaming. Their new single ‘Sirens’ is a departure from their fizzy, sunny-side up debut album ‘Here’s to Better Times & Seeing Better Places’, released in March of 2019. The decidedly darker release is Brennan’s response to working with young women and witnessing empowerment and dominance being met with dismissal and fear. “As young girls we are raised to be apologetic and modest: be assertive, but only if it doesn’t upset anyone else, be confident but not conceited, be ambitious but don’t try too hard. ‘Sirens’ is my little protest to this narrative”.

Need something to put a smile on your face?

Press play on this one!

It makes me so happy, every time I play it I feel like I am on the verge of public outbursts of laughter and dancing (like no one's watching - cliche but, true!). It's so rad!!!
