Saint Sister, formed in November 2014, is the creation of Morgan MacIntyre and Gemma Doherty. Their music draws from early Celtic harp traditions, 60s folk and electronic pop to create ‘atmosfolk'—a mix of soulful vocal harmonies, dreamy synth and electro-acoustic harp.
Following an early performance on Irish national television, one of their first gigs saw them open the stage for Arcade Fire’s Will Butler. Their debut EP ‘Madrid’, recorded with Alex Ryan (bassist with Hozier), was released on November 13th 2015 on Trout Records. Having toured the EP around Ireland supporting O Emperor and Wyvern Lingo, Saint Sister finished the year with a sold out headline show in Dublin, a TV performance on RTE’s Other Voices, their first London showcase and numerous plays on BBC Radio 1.
2016 sees the band’s first international appearances, at Festival A Nous Paris Fireworks and SXSW, Texas. They return to the UK for The Great Escape Festival and a headline London show in May.
