Introducing The Cadbury Sisters

April 9, 2014


“…beautiful harmonies and gorgeous vocals.”
– Tom RobinsonBBC 6Music
The Cadbury Sisters release their debut EP Close via Fear Of Fiction on 16th June 2014.  Like all the interesting things in life, they come with a secret – their great great grandfather was William Cadbury, the man behind the world famous chocolate company.  Jessica (vocals and percussion), Mary (vocals and electric guitar) and Lucy Cadbury (vocals and acoustic guitar) are his direct descendants and yes, they are all sisters.  Their goal is simple; to take the spirit of traditional English Folk music, infuse its DNA with contemporary influences such as Fleet FoxesDaughter and First Aid Kit before disseminating it into the world.  If Cecil Sharp House were run by Saga Noren this is how its corridors would sound.

The Cadbury Sisters live in a half forgotten dream, inhabiting places we remember, yet sometimes feel uneasy about returning to.  Their music is a meld of harmony, discord and mindfulness, their songs the sonic equivalent of watching Swallows And Amazons or The Railway Children inter-spliced with The Wicker Man or Lord Of The Flies.

The gorgeous video for ‘Milk’ has already been premiered by Gigwise, but you can also watch it via The Cadbury Sisters YouTube channel.

The trio played 20 festivals last year including 2000 TreesCambridge FolkMosely FolkHard Rock Calling and Blissfields and have supported George EzraDry The River,  StornowayThe StavesTreetop Flyers and Caitlin Rose. Former Blur drummer and XFM DJ Dave Rowntree will also be remixing the single Milk, from the EP. Rowntree and Cadbury – it’s a marriage made in heaven!

Opening track ‘Milk’ and closer, ‘Fire’, showcase the burning crescendos that set The Cadbury Sisters apart from their contemporaries.  ‘Lolita’ and ‘You Choose’ embody the forbidden fruits of lust, covetousness and jealousy, while the delicate ‘Quarry’ hints at early Kate Bush or Pentangle in its harmonies, yet its accessibility firmly evokes Rumours era Fleetwood Mac.

Close will be receiving a dual launch at The Islington, London June 11th and The Louisiana, Bristol 12th June. They’ve also confirmed festival appearances at The Bristol Folk Festival2000 Trees Festival andThe Alternative Escape in May and have picked up radio play from the likes of BBC Radio 1’s Huw StephensBBC 6Music’s Tom Robinson, and XFM’s John Kennedy.

Close is released 16th June 2014 via Fear Of Fiction.
