Sing Again Syren are a rock and roll power trio from Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK. Formed by guitarist and vocalist Eliza Lee towards the end of 2018, the band have embarked on a mission to breathe new life into the sounds and styles of the classic rock era and redefine the rockstar. Bassist, Laila Riley and drummer, Hattie Steel complete the line up by lending their unique blend of heavy rock, blues and funk inspired playing to the groups signature sound. With a growing reputation for their formidable live performances that transport audiences to the heart of the golden age of rock, Sing Again Syren combine a huge range of influences from Led Zeppelin to Fleetwood Mac and from Howlin' Wolf to Royal Blood.
The band released their bold and heavy debut single 'Kiss The Preacher' in January of 2019. Recorded in an old church, the track gained attention for its darkness, offering a challenge to preconceptions surrounding the 'girl band' sound. This was followed by their second single 'Cast Away' which secured further features from BBC Introducing and Louder Sounds.
Sing Again Syren now move in to their second year as a group having already opened shows for the likes of guitar virtuoso Paul Gilbert, the critically acclaimed She Drew The Gun and blues rock powerhouse, Jared James Nichols. Their notoriety as a live act has also seen the band attain spots as the two largest music festivals in the North East: Hit The North and This Is Tomorrow.
With their debut EP 'Time Is A Trip' released on the 29th of February 2020, Sing Again Syren are ready to leave their mark on hard rock history.

LIVE REVIEW: SHE DREW THE GUN, PEANESS, SING AGAIN SYREN @ RIVERSIDE, NEWCASTLE (09.11.19)
IN NARC. MAGAZINE
The gig began with stellar support from two female fronted bands, Peaness and powerful up and comers Sing Again Syren. Acting as a throwback to the incredible riff-heavy sounds of the classic rock era, Sing Again Syren were oozing style with slick, bluesy vocals and brutal crunching drums. Peaness followed this with their blend of upbeat, up-tempo, feel good tracks; their fun loving sounds and energy setting the mood for the night.
SINGLE REVIEW: SING AGAIN SYREN 'CAST AWAY'
IN FORTITUDE MAGAZINE
Having released debut single ‘Kiss The Preacher’ earlier this year, North East three-piece Sing Again Syren continue to show their credentials as rock and roll upstarts through the guitar driven new single ‘Cast Away’.
Bursting out of the blocks with hazy, in your face guitar riffs, you’d be forgiven for thinking you’d been transported back to the ‘Me Decade’ of the 1970’s. Taking cues from the likes of Heart, The Runaways and Led Zeppelin, Sing Again Syren produce raucous soundscapes, menacingly pouring from every note. Led by vocalist and guitarist Eliza Lee, ‘Cast Away’ takes no prisoners for just over four breathless minutes...
SING AGAIN SYREN: "CAST AWAY"
Oh, wow this song. The latest song from Sing Again Syren is just pure rock. "Cast Away" is being compared to other artists like Heart, The Runaways, and Babes in Toyland, and I can't say I disagree with that at all. I'd also throw in a more straightforward rock version of Sarah Shook with all the country stripped out. There's been a lot of talk about who will be the future savior of guitar driven rock. Sing Again Syren are the closest thing I've heard to rock's savior. If you have an appreciation for classic hard rock with all pretension stripped away, you really need to check out "Cast Away."
