The Cadbury Sisters - Sarah
Bristol trio The Cadbury Sisters are an act we've been aware about for some time without really delving deeply into their music. I've heard bits of pieces of their music which I've liked, and I'd hoped to catch them on their most recent tour whilst I was in Edinburgh recently, although unfortunately a gym-related incident put an end to that plan (kids - always stretch before doing any strenuous exercise, especially if you and working out have a very tumultuous relationship).
So with a new E.P out, it's never been a better time to check them out, and wouldn't you know it, they've released a real thing of beauty in "Sarah", the E.P's title track. It might be a bit easy to compare its sound to both Haim and The Staves, two other bands made up of sisters, but in the case of "Sarah", it's an apt comparison, with the song taking cues from the former's alt-pop aesthetic and the latter's close harmonies to create something simultaneously captivating, accessible and otherworldly. They're heading to Glastonbury this weekend, and if they can deliver more songs like "Sarah", The Cadbury Sisters could win over quite a lot of people.
"Sarah" is out now.
