Electric Picnic 2015 Reviewed

Thanks so much to Festival and Gig Guide Ireland for the lovely review. We're all about the dreamy tea and biscuits ✨

Saint Sister were next on my gentle-awakening list. Their "dreamy pop/atmosfolk", as they define it, it's simply captivating. Two voices that match like biscuits and tea and turn every room into an intimate dreamland. It feels like peeping on someone else's mind (and humans are curious creatures, so we love it).

SAINT SISTER

SAINT SISTER

Saint Sister, formed in November 2014, is the new project from 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 their debut performance on Irish television, they opened for Arcade Fire’s Will Butler in Whelan’s. April saw them support San Fermin (Downtown records), and tour Ireland with Dublin band Spies. In August, the band entered the studio for the first time to record their debut EP with Alex Ryan (bassist with Hozier), which is scheduled for a Winter release. Over the coming months they will play Electric Picnic Festival, Hard Working Class Heroes Festival, and commence two Irish tours with Wyvern Lingo and O Emperor. They finish 2015 with their first London showcase with promoter Parallel Lines. 'Theirs is a strong, resonant, magnetic sound, with a clear folk influence in the wash, but one where the spooky, full-bodied songs they’re digging out also come with a lot of melodic gumption' – Jim Carroll, The Irish Times 'Their music is folk, pastoral and dreamy with its pop eyes wide open' – Nialler 9
