Saint Sister connaît une ascension fulgurante depuis sa formation il y a deux ans. Morgan MacIntyre et Gemma Doherty façonnent une musique « atmosfolk », mélange d’émouvantes harmonies vocales, de harpe électroacoustique hypnotique et de synthétiseur onirique.
Oscillant entre pop électronique délicate et folk contemplative, le duo nous offrira un moment suspendu, empreint de poésie, accompagné par son invitée Rachael Lavelle, auteure-compositrice-interprète à la voix aussi troublante que puissante, déjà comparée à Kate Bush ou London Grammar.
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.
Since their formation, the band have toured extensively throughout Europe. They made their US debut in March 2016 with multiple showcases at SXSW, and have had notable appearances at numerous festivals including BBC Introducing at Glastonbury, Latitude, Electric Picnic, Longitude, The Great Escape, Reeperbahn Festival and Eurosonic. 2017 saw the band support Lisa Hannigan on a 20 date European tour as well as a headline show at The National Concert Hall, Dublin. In September the band opened for The National in the Cork Opera house.
2018 has seen the band travel to Sweden for a Stockholm headline as well as perform at Where’s the Music festival. They performed at The National Concert Hall, Dublin and The Barbican as part of the Imagining Ireland series. The band embarked on a tour of the USA in March with a sold out show in Brooklyn, NYC as well as shows in Rockwood Music hall and a second appearance at SXSW. An intimate April show in St John the Baptist church sold out in 12 hours and this summer the band look forward to playing the main stage at Body and Soul ahead of their debut tour of Australia in November.
