Psychic sisters, also the daughter of a psychic mother (and potentially a psychic grandmother, and great grandmother) grow up between Christchurch, New Zealand and Hong Kong. Homeschooling amplifies their sense of myth and legend, and love of music.
After a series of earthquakes level Christchurch, they travel the world performing a pastoral-but-increasing-cybernetic brand of dream pop. Tours with Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, Gary War and Ensemble Economique lead to 10” and 12” vinyl singles, and after an extended recording stint in the North Island kiwi bush, the ethereal delights of “Eternal Delight”.
Soothing, thoughtful and brave, it’s one of my favourite albums of the year.
