Is/Is “This Happening”


Synth fuzzed layered – girl group – noise pop. 

Stunning Debut!

Is/Is – So Long

“This Happening” is the debut EP from Minneapolis three-piece Is/Is. Four tracks evoke comparisons to Black Tambourine and Mazzy Star as water-tight pop melodies float delicately atop a tumultous sea of fuzzed-out guitar swells and heart-shuddering rhythmic surges. Weave with rainbow ties to your heart, pull it out, and devour in an ecstasy of violence and humanizing passion. Recorded in part by Neil Weir at Old Blackberry Way—also produced, recorded, and mixed by Red Pens’ frontman Howard Hamilton III.

Sarah Rose (guitar, voice)
Sarah Nienaber (bass, voice)
Mara Appel (drums)

Out (now) September 11th on Guilt Ridden Pop.

  1. I just happened upon this band via 3Wk radio.
    Thanks for the info. I like their sound.

  2. Sarah Rose and Sarah Neinaber swapped instruments and vocal duties from their previous bands (First Communion Afterparty and Gospel Gossip, respectively). True boring Minneapolis music nerd fact.
