New Music: Otra Vez – Sidewatcher

Back in 2013, when I was blogging on the UK Music Directory, I interviewed Zoë and Dylan Kissel. At that time the siblings were both members of the band The Porcelain Doll Collection, an awesome punk/rock band. You can check out the EP “Grade One” on Spotify, and purchase it from iTunes.

Sidewatcher’s music is a sweetheart with a switchblade. It’s the teenage girl who was ditched at prom and now has blood in her eyes. Mixed with waves of garage surf, Sidewatcher’s songs have a barbie punk/prom rock vibe that take you on a trip through sick love and manipulative alien boyfriends.
