Essentially, the Sisters EP is a re-released single for "Babies," featuring three new songs. The first, "Your Sister's Clothes, " revisits the pair of sisters from "Babies" and, as the sleeve says, "the younger sibling finally gets her revenge for earlier years." "Seconds" and "His 'N' Hers" both explore the fears and pitfalls of domestic life and the latter in pariticular is very effective, with its vaguely Latin beat. The EP charted at number 19, the band's highest placing to date, and set the stage for the breakthrough success of "Common People." None of the B-sides appeared on an album.
