UK-based quartet Sisyphes takes us on a journey of death and rebirth in new single “Samsara,” a celestial shoegaze piece that lets your mind wander into the unknown for hours. “Saṃsāra is a Sanskrit word that means ‘wandering’ or ‘world,’ with the connotation of cyclic, circuitous change. In short, it is the cycle of death and rebirth,” explained the band. Dive in:
Comprised of former La Houle guitarist and songwriter Geoffrey Papin, Clémentine Blue (Tiger Lion), John Davies (Michael A Grammar, Traams) and Jimi Tormey (Gang), Sisyphes is named after a Greek myth character doomed to roll a colossal boulder up a hill for eternity. If you’re pursuing anything in the creative arts, then such moniker makes absolute sense.
