Martha - Courting Strong on the Moon

Martha are a band from just north of The North featuring a brother and sister on vocals. They remind me of early Arctic Monkeys or The Wind-up Birds, but less cynical and political and with lots of charm. However, the songs are not necessarily charming , with some inspired by growing up in a "town that time forgot" or by the work and lives of poets and writers.

Below you can stream their debut album via Bandcamp which you can also find on Spotify or Deezer, but on Bandcamp you can check out the brilliant lyrics and a few tracks from singles and EPs not streamable in the usual places that are available at as "name your price" downloads. They are very much worth the bother.
