Saint Sister - Madrid EP (Trout Records)

Star rating: 
4

The video promo for Blood Moon, directed and produced by Myrid Carten and Aphra Lee Hill and featuring Meabh Parr and Emma White, serves as a good introduction to the ethereal music of Morgan MacIntyre and Gemma Doherty, otherwise known as Saint Sister. The evocative video, which shows two young girls engaging in a sort of Heavenly Creatures-like blood bonding escapade on some remote landscape, perfectly fits the almost otherworldly song it accompanies. Once settled into the so called 'atmosfolk' soundscape, the EP closes with the haunting Versions of Hate, which could quite easily be the Irish equivalent of The Unthanks at their most evocative.
