Intelligent, inspirited and informed Indie.


We are all a product of our environment, and it shows with some of us more than others. For this sister act, their environment has been a worldly experience of travelling around the globe, listing their location as 'London via Papua New Guinea' on social media.


This comes as a result of their parent's job postings, but more latterly as a continuation of their global identity. And their wanderlust has done nothing other than enhance and enrich their sweet euphony, distinctly distinguishing them from many other bands of late.Offering a warmth and narrative of distant, peaceful places for those of us on our last legs from the London grind.


Not only do these harmonious tunes reflect their observations along the way, but are also entwined with intelligent, thought-provoking opinions of current social and political matters. Escapism, yes, but not without the weight of our social responsibility in the city we call home.

WHAT OR WHO MADE YOU WANT TO START CREATING MUSIC?
I can remember wanting to play guitar from an early age. Our older sister Krystle played acoustic for a while but moved on to piano so I would mess about on that one and then when I was 11 my parents got me an electric guitar and I started lessons. Holly started writing songs young and asked if I could help out on the guitar parts so just went from there. So I guess it was their influence that pushed me into creating music.


WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE VENUE THAT YOU HAVE PLAYED?
We supported Mika last year and one leg of the tour was around Italy. All of the venues we played there were stunning. My favourite was one in Molfetta as it overlooked the ocean and just as we were playing could see the sun set, it was amazing!


WHO MUSICALLY IS YOUR BIGGEST INFLUENCE - EITHER BEFORE OR NOW?
Rilo Kiley/ Jenny Lewis


WHAT IS YOUR MAIN SOURCE OF INSPIRATION TO WRITE YOUR MUSIC?
Experiences and the places we've been I reckon and what we've been reading about or talking to people about.
