Swedish Folk duo First Aid Kit might be all the rage at the moment (and rightly so), but let’s give due attention to another set of sweet sounding folk sisters from the biggest little town in Georgia. Claire and Page Campbell, whose gentle Vic-Chesnutt-style folk have won Hope for Agoldensummer years of critical acclaim in and outside of the artist haven known as Athens, released Life Inside The Body (AmazonMP3 & Spotify) earlier this month.
Recorded over a two-year span with bandmate & engineer, Suny Lyons, the new album of sixteen gorgeous tracks moves back and forth from ominous contemporary songs to traditional folk a capella songs.
Here are first two singles from the album. Uniquely different, but both are great. The band just wrapped a tour, which included an appearance at Charlottesville’s Tom Tom Founders Festival, watch their Facebook page for future shows.
