Track Of The Day #236:Lily and Madeleine – Back To The River

Now be fair warned that this is truly exceptional. Recently signed up by asthmatic – kitty and already the cause of much inter web swooning, sisters Lily and Madeleine are two teenagers aged 16 and 18 but don’t let that mere detail fool you otherwise into believing that what you have here is mere trite trinket pop for these siblings display a maturity that makes a mockery of their tender years. A debut EP entitled ‘Weight of the Globe’ is set for release June time for now an intimately set live recording of the duo performing ‘Back To The River’ has been set upon the cyberspace community to serve as a herald to serve notice of intent. A haunting slice of beguiled bewitchment dutifully demurred as though the shyly withdrawn offspring of a vulnerable meeting of Delgados and Smoke Fairies types, all at once touching, tormented and tearfully traced in a humbling spiritual aura that comes trimmed tenderly and teased to an achingly yearning timeless folk tongue. Will crush on turntable appearance.
