Many siblings don’t get along too well, though, most are just there for you when you need them.. In rare cases, brother and sister are best buds.. But no more than once in your lifetime will you meet a bro and sis team that hang out and make a record that will take months for you to take out of your cd player!
Here I introduce to you The Holy Roman Army consisting of Chris and Laura Coffey, and I must say, they’ve tapped into something. It’s not trip-hop, there’s too much genuine emotion for that.. and I hate to call it electronica, there’s so much more depth.. but by no means is it electro-rock.. What is it? You tell me…
Chris and Laura both do their fair share of singing on the album, and both of them are spot on. I can honestly say that never have I experienced listening to an album in which I enjoy the ‘shared vocal thing’ this much. The vocals are…majestic? haunting? inspiring? The lyrics are…great!
Their debut album, entitled ‘How The Light Gets In’, is on release on their own Collapsed Adult label and is available in all good records stores in Ireland and all major online retailers worldwide. I highly suggest heading to iTunes and finding this record, in its entirety. I’ll be listening to this one for years….
