Female fronted four-piece electronic rockers BANSHEE [previously Life on Standby] from Greenock in Scotland are to issue a new EP titled “Say My Name.”
“Our sound […] s more electronically based, leaning towards the synth sounds of PVRIS or Bring Me The Horizon with the riffs of Biffy Clyro…” They told us
“Accompanied by raw female vocals— we would like to think this EP is something that you can move around to.”

The voice of Erin Donnachie reminds us of Kylie mixed with Cyndi Lauper …
Ever-so slightly nasally yet syrupy sweet with a big amphetamine hit… this is not necessarily a bad thing.
The bass is vibrant and harmonious without being threatening. And the choppiness of the guitar is fine against the layers of synthesized smoothness.
This is a sparkling mix of carbon dioxide and fully developed confusion…
