Sister Ray’s ‘All Dogs Go To Heaven’ Is Shockingly Beautiful

"I wanted it to sound like it was tumbling..."

Sister Ray has shared their new song ‘All Dogs Go To Heaven’.

The songwriter – real name Ella Coyes – won acclaim for their debut album ‘Communion’, which packed an incredible emotional punch. International shows included a date at Pitchfork London, before Sister Ray returned home to focus on something new.

The Edmonton-born songwriter will release new EP ‘Teeth’ on May 12th, another work of heightened intensity and hushed melodicism. New song ‘All Dogs Go To Heaven’ epitomises their work – whispered incantations, its web-like array of sound frames a vocal driven by truth, and a rugged sense of honesty.

In Ella Coyes own words, it’s about “the temptation to find the line and cross it.”

The song was pieced together from fragments, held together by Sister Ray’s aesthetic intent. “This song happened through small notes that kept coming back, pulling a bunch of little phrases that I was obsessed with but couldn’t find a place for. I wanted it to sound like it was tumbling.”

Tune in now.
