CHUGG ENTERTAINMENT & GAYNOR CRAWFORD PRESENT
“Their haunting performance is impeccable… Masters at creating atmosphere, they command the room with near-perfect silence achieved during Corpses.” – The Irish Times
“…dripping with raw pain, heightened by tremendous vocal depth and vulnerability.” – Hot Press
“The thick, eerie electro-folk of Ireland’s Saint Sister, not so much haunted as delicately possessed”– The Guardian
“It’s easy to get lost in the minimal, chasmic, but beautifully arranged soundscapes” – Stereogum
Formed in 2014, Saint Sister is friends Morgan MacIntyre and Gemma Doherty. Their music draws from early Celtic harp traditions, 60s folk and electronic pop to create ‘atmosfolk’—a mix of soulful vocal harmonies, dreamy synth and electro-acoustic harp.
2015’s debut EP Madrid garnered critical acclaim, gaining traction across Irish national radio and BBC Radio 1. Follow-up single ‘Tin Man’ came in 2016 as part of Communion’s Singles Club; it was nominated for Song of the Year by the Choice Music Prize and saw the duo named Best Irish Band by readers of The Irish Times. Latest single ‘Causing Trouble’ is the first track from the forthcoming record.
Saint Sister have performed at premiere music events across the globe, from Glastonbury and Latitude to The Great Escape and SXSW. They have supported the likes of The National, Arcade Fire’s Will Butler, and fellow Irish native Lisa Hannigan, and have held audiences captive at Dublin’s National Concert Hall and The Barbican, amongst other notable venues around the world.
