Heathers are twin sisters from Dublin. They are 18 and will sit their Leaving Certificate exams in June 2008. Despite obstacles of school and the fact that up until their birthday a few months ago they had to sneak into their own gigs, Heathers have exploded in popularity in the local scene. When seen live this is hardly surprising.
Armed with just one guitar and two incredible voices, the result would brighten the darkest room. The lyrics -at times abstract and poetic, at others more metaphorical storytelling, are unified by their consistent quality, delivered with an impressive display of vocal range.
Heathers’ debut album ‘Here, Not There’ comes just one year after their first gig. A year where they have been in high demand at house parties and local gigs alike and are set to embark on a 30 day US tour with Ghost Mice (US) in July that will see them playing with artists such as Kimya Dawson (of The Moldy Peaches).
With such strong songwriting and both local and international popularity at such an early stage, Heathers are causing a lot of excitiement.
‘Here, Not There.’ is released on 23/05/2008 as a joint release between Hide Away (IE) and Plan-it-X (US)
