Sister John return with their new album ‘I Am By Day’




Glaswegian band Sister John have returned with their highly anticipated new album ‘I Am By Day’, released via Last Night From Glasgow. The record sees Sister John’s trademark lush sonic atmospheres and folk influences, although this time the band have incorporated subtle electronic textures into their style. ‘I Am By Day’ marks an evolution of Sister John’s sound, whilst still retaining the soft crooning, visceral lyricism and rich instrumentation that is central to their organic brand of alternative music.


Composed of multi-instrumentalists and songwriters Jonathan Lilley, Sophie Pragnell, Heather Phillips and Amanda McKeown, Sister John made their debut in 2017 with the album ‘Returned From Sea’, which received support from BBC Radio Scotland and BBC Radio 6. Releasing their second album in 2019, Sister John sold out Glasgow’s Poetry Club and London’s Sebright Arms. Their third project ‘I Am By Day’ marks the start of a new era for this promising indie band.
