SIRES is a three piece, pop band from Des Moines, Iowa. Their soulful vocal harmonies arranged with sweeping strings and violent distorted bass give you a glimpse of what Chet Baker might have sounded like if he grew up in the post-punk Midwest.
Having achieved regional success under different monikers, DylanSires (guitar/lead vocals), Ross Klemz(drum/percussion) & Graham Howland (bass guitar) as SIRES have delivered the defining work of their collaboration. The record is an anomaly in these modern times.Sires’ soulful croon is deeply rooted in the pre-Beatles American songbook while the music is direct and immediate.
On October 21st, 2016, SIRES released their debut album “Soul for Sale” on Station 1 Records. The collection, produced by Brandon Darner (Imagine Dragons, Holy White Hounds, The Envy Corps), is a refreshing reminder that pop can be both brash and heartbreakingly seductive.
