Check out The Pierces
03 Aug 2011
The Pierces, Catherine and Allison Pierce, have released their latest single, “It Won’t Be Forgotten.”
Taken from their critically acclaimed album, “You & I,” The Pierces are the latest of the current crop of neo-folk acts that is slowly taking the UK music scene by storm.
Along with the likes of Beirut, Florence and The Machine, Arcade Fire and Mumford & Sons, to name but a few, The Pierces offer an alternative, a much needed earthy, sincere facet to our charts, mostly dominated by produced pop acts from reality show contestants wailing their way through the obvious cover version and phalanxes of auto-tune disasters.
The Pierces have just come offstage, supporting Coldplay at the iTunes Festival at London’s Roundhouse, where the hippie sisters have taken another step towards breaking into the mainstream with their soft, uplifting vocals and bittersweet lyrics.
Check out The Pierces video to their latest single, “It Won’t Be Forgotten” and make sure to secure your tickets for the duo’s forthcoming UK tour in October.
