Apocalyptic Noir Rock. Minimalist drone. Using guitars, vocals, loops, electronic devices together with song writing.
Listen Lisse is a songwriter from New Zealand.
Songs of darkly crooning intensity. Listen Lisse uses an unconventional and inventive/experimental approach to song writing.
Sometimes I'm a noise/experimental artist, see the Nnja Riot page for more about this branch of my music.
“The self-described minimalist/drone approach is prevalent throughout the album, the overall product a fully cohesive performance channelling a late ’80s New York indie rock vibe. Sonic Youth meets Hole is the running theme and McKendrick’s obvious love of folk is the influence that gives her songs a voice of their own.”
— NZ Musician
“It takes courage to go into a studio and play it like you do live and that’s what Listen Lisse has demonstrated with her album “Sunset Over Cairo”. Over the course of these ten songs, she flies the flag of an honest performer and that alone distinguishes her from the dedicated followers of autotuning.” - Blues Bunny
"Listen Lisse captivates the audience with her mesmerising song-craft" - Time Out
