Lily and Madeleine on the Moon

Lily and Madeleine are two sisters aged just 16 and 18 that sound suspiciously wise for their young age but then they are on Sufjan Stevens Asthmatic Kitty label which is reassuring. The world and his wife have been very successfully sold an equally young singer called Lorde as an "authentic Lana Del Rey" and whilst she is impressive and can obviously sing I have failed to pick up the actual songs beyond the stylistics. There is nothing new to the sound of Lily and Madeleine but you will find some great songs sung beautifully and therefore they have quite a bit in common with Miss Grant. Check out the album plus an EP from earlier in the year on the Moon below.

They also remind me of blighty's very own the Staves and of course First Aid Kit of whom they have said are a big influence. So two young Swedish sisters have inspired two young American sisters to produce some classic Americana...
