Listen to us:
Who are we?

Sister Girlfriend is a glittery, shimmery pop band from Seattle, made up of friends David Balatero, Rob Hanlon, Ryan Batie, and Chris Icasiano.

Sine Wave
Sawtooth Wave

They imagine a future where every groove bumps and every melody sparkles. They are forward-looking but backward-leaning, marrying the rhythms and harmonic density of R&B with the push/pull dynamic between space and forward movement of house music. They tie myriad influences together with melodies that glance at both contemporary electronic pop and blue-eyed soul. Sister Girlfriend aims to put a boogie in your butt, your heart, and your brain.

Stuff nice people have written about us:


…their blue-eyed soul is being played perfectly straight, which bolsters the music and sends it sailing beyond the realms of ironic detachment. What we're left with is pure, unadorned, baby-making music. Take it at face value and sashay up to someone.
Whether you do the hustle, pop & lock, or dance a jig, this song oughta get you moving, it’s really as much fun as you can possibly have with pants on.
The music of Sister Girlfriend suggests a fantasy world where a brash Hall & Oates go on a prog-rock/futuristic-R&B bender.
This is the type of shit that makes you want to pile your friends in a car, fill the cooler with Lime-A-Ritas, and watch the sunset on the beach. Who cares if it's 45 degrees outside?
