Sidewinder - Sirens (Single Review)

Release date: April 2021. Label: Self Released. Format: DD

Sirens – Tracklisting



Sirens is the 1st single from Wellington, New Zealand – Desert/Grunge/Stoner Rockers – Sidewinder – and it shows this band may have something to say when their debut album is released later this year.

The band state “Sidewinder is a new combination of experienced musicians playing a mash-up of desert rock with bluesy southern rock and a grungy aftertaste.”

Sirens has a deep SOUNDGARDEN and ALICE IN CHAINS influence with a dirty Grunge sound being the main thing that you can hear within the constraints of the song. The 3 minute plus song does see the band bring in elements of Stoner Rock and Desert Rock which makes for a more interesting approach to their overall sound.

The vocals are purely “Grunge” based but offer a very cool touch to the familiar style Desert and Stoner Rock grooves the band play on SIRENS.

Sirens is a very good song indeed and is LOUD and POWERFUL for the message of the song that Sidewinder are trying to aim for. Though, I do need to hear a lot more from the band but this is a promising from Sidewinder. 

I recommend you should check their Website out where you can get a free download of the song yourselves.
