Members of Ganglians and Night Manager join forces to form Blood Sister

Get ready for a double dose of fuzzed-out trash pop from a brand new San Francisco pairing. Rising from the ashes of the short-lived Brooklyn band Night Manager, San Francisco native Ezana Edwards picks up his guitar to join Ryan Grubbs and Kyle Hoover of local pysch-pop outfit Ganglians in forming a brand new project called Blood Sister.
