shishi – bass, drums, guitar and a choir of three
shishi are a Vilnius based Lithuanian power girl trio. Their music is a blend of lo-fi / surf / soul / trash/ played with childish joy and feminine energy.
The band’s members Dominyka Kriščiūnaitė and Giedrė Nalivaikaitė were mainstays on the alternative Lithuanian scene having previously played in Ministry of Echology, Homechestra and Elle G before joining their musical forces to create something fresh in the alternative scene. The name shishi comes from the Chinese mythological guardian lion with magical power to repel evil spirits: the band is the guardian of your ears, protecting you from misery with their mythic stage presence. In September 2018 shishi released their debut album NA x 80 featuring singles “Love” and “Cavasara”. In 2020 shishi signed to The state51 Conspiracy to release their follow up MAFITISHEI an album which sees the band “in search of new winds with new sounds and colours”.
