Need to know: Before the group even had enough band members or songs to play a full set, the guys from rising locals Yawn asked Sister Crystals—previously called Magic City, until the TV show took all their Google results—to open Yawn’s record release show last year at Schubas. “I guess we’ve been tagged as dream-pop and indie rock,” says singer/guitarist Lauren Whitacre, 21, of the group’s “Little Bits” EP. That’s a fitting description of Sister Crystals’ mix of fragile vocals and hazy guitars.
Influences: Best Coast, Grizzly Bear, Beach Boys
Live show: A “detail-oriented” mix of ballads and songs that are “really rocky,” says Whitacre.
