Montreal’s Caila Thompson-Hannant is Mozart’s Sister. Mozart’s Sister’s lead single’s title? “Mozart’s Sister”! It’s a cheery-sounding burst of ’80s pop (her bio name-checks Cyndi and Kylie) meshed with ’50s girl-group callback flair, and some very contemporary electronic production filigree (her bio also name-checks scenemates tUnE-yArDs and Grimes) — a catchy, feel-good thing, for the point in the party when the girls get drunk enough to make a dancing circle and sing to each other. But back to that project/title name, though: As a listener, when you encounter a project/title track, you have to consider the possibility that you are listening to that artist’s spiritual mission statement, and “Mozart’s Sister” appears to be just that — lyrics about always being #2 (“feeling like Mozart’s sister,” which was a pretty bum ticket in the genetic lottery), and a video casting Caila as the ho-hum, quirky also-ran to her backing singers’ appearance as more “conventionally attractive” ciphers. That’s likely to change, though, because this track and its Angus Borsos-directed clip do their job well — Caila seems smart, self-aware, and willing to play with vanity and identity, and “Mozart’s Sister” is an earworm, and the video features lots of outfits. Dive in, here.
