Tommy Sistak Releases New EP 'Short Songs'

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE –

The composer and performer of rock 'n' roll known as Tommy Sistak has released his latest EP music album, titled, “Short Songs.” The album is comprised of 10 original tracks for an approximate total listening time of half an hour, making for a comprehensive treatment of Sistak material and a round introduction to this legitimate and jumping 1960's pop revival.

Sistak cites as main artistic influences such various legends as the Beatles, the Everly Brothers, Buddy Holly, Cheap Trick, Queen, Slade, “and anyone who has recorded good music.” Of these, the two most obvious inspirations to the Tommy Sistak sound are the Beatles and Slade. Sistak's signature sound is purposefully designed after the rock 'n' roll pop style of the 1960s, which centered around three-part vocal harmonies, electric guitars and upbeat drum rhythms. This resulting tone is absolutely reminiscent of the Beatles' iconic early sound as heard on songs such as “Love Me Do” and “Hard Day's Night.”

Sistak's songwriting is one of his strongest allures, however, and in this he has more in common with the oft-overlooked UK band, Slade, who managed 17 consecutive Top-20 hits with six of them at No. One, making them the most popular British rock band of the '70s according to sales of single tracks. Their standard verse-chorus form of pop composition follows precisely with the trend of '60s rock music, and in this Tommy Sistak has like interests.

“I’m attempting to re-create some fun and interesting simple melodic songs that were present in the 1960s,” Sistak writes. “The two-and-a-half-minute pop song seems to be missing these days. Hoping to present some songs that will stick in one’s head.”

Intuitively, Sistak's “Short Songs” is populated almost uniformly with tracks between two and a half and three minutes. The product is an EP that never gets tiresome, as its themes are widely varied across 10 singles with an overall length that is refreshingly brief while remaining sonically rich and textured.

Tommy Sistak grew up playing in garage bands in suburban Chicago. He was a longtime member of the well-known and respected band, Bagshot Row, with whom he has shared the stage with Davy Jones of the Monkees, Peter Noone and Herman’s Hermits, and Eric Burdon and the Animals.

“Short Songs” by Tommy Sistak is available online worldwide beginning 3 January 2014.
