Their debut album is called ’59.59’ and is exactly one second shy of an hour, which is the kind of time-related precision that we love at No Days Off. It’s a beautiful, varied, textural album that you can easily get lost in for almost an hour, with some gorgeous vocals from Sian Ahern and one amazing track loosely based on a Jeff Mills tune. They’ve also got a very limited twelve inch out featuring remixes from Alexis Taylor (Hot Chip) and Gang Gang Dance.
Sian Alice Group play the ICA on the 8th of December alongside A Place To Bury Strangers and Ten Kens and they’ll be massive in 2009, so don’t say we didn’t warn you.
