With songs titles like “I’m Filled with Steak, and Cannot Dance,” it’s hard not to be charmed by Sidney Gish. A couple of years ago, the Boston-based college student’s life changed in the kind of mystical way that’s usually reserved for the movies when one of her self-released tracks landed on Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist. After that, she released her album No Dogs Allowed and toured the East Coast opening for Mitski. Gish’s music bears some undeniable similarities to that of Frankie Cosmos—she even quotes that band’s frontwoman Greta Kline on “I Eat Salads Now”—but her jazzy guitar riffs, self-deprecating lyrics about her “Imposter Syndrome,” and intricately assembled layers of percussion sound completely unique and devastatingly pretty (especially on standout track “Persephone”).
