Trio of teen sisters slay Metallica’s ‘Enter Sandman’
There are so many more lady rockers on stage and in the airwaves these days — take popular acts like Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Hayley Williams of Paramore, and the women of Sleater-Kinney and Haim, or indie favorites Girlpool, Warpaint, and St. Vincent. But rock fans know that the scene is to this day still dominated by all-male acts, so when we see girls shredding and wailing, we have hope for the next generation of female rock bands. And well, preteen trio The Warning makes it clear that the future of women in rock is very, very bright.
Mexican sisters Daniela, Paulina, and Alejandra are 14, 12, and 9 respectively, but you wouldn’t be able to guess their ages based on their attitude and musical skill. No seriously: Check out their incredible cover of Metallica’s iconic “Enter Sandman” and try not to let your jaw sink to the floor.
When the sisters aren’t blowing ears and minds with their metal covers, they enjoy regular teen things: Reading, baking, and playing board games. But they clearly have music performance in their blood, with oldest sis Dany saying that her “control freak” tendencies keep her not just practicing piano and guitar every day, but also enjoying practicing.
The sisters are currently crowdfunding for a chance to attend Berklee College of Music’s summer program, and have started recording and releasing their own music. First single “Free Falling” is available on iTunes now, and their debut EP Escape the Mind will be out on April 14. If you need any more reasons to check them out, we’re leaving you with a few of our faves from their covers library; turn these up, and get your lady rocker fix, stat.
