Twin Sister’s reviews and profiles are littered with blind Portishead comparisons, but this Long Island quintet stand quite tall on their own 10 feet. On their 2011 release, In Heaven, singer Andrea Estella’s versatile voice carries a grouping of intimate tracks that seem as influenced by Angelo Badalamenti’s eerie Twin Peaks songs as by any Stereolab album. Equipped vocally to match any mood and pitch, Estella seamlessly alternates vocal personas and at various times sounds like Amy Winehouse, The Cardigans’ Nina Persson, and either CocoRosie sister.
Estella and company are next up in Bardot’s Living Room Sessions series, with a gig on Thursday night. Tickets to the 21+ show cost $20 (the $15 early birds sold out), and we’ve got a free pair to give away to one lucky brother or sister. To enter to win, simply leave a comment on this post. We will announce the winner, chosen at random, on the Beached Miami Facebook page on Wednesday afternoon. Until then, check out the very Roadhouse-worthy “Kimmi in a Rice Field”, track five off of In Heaven.
