“…beautiful folk music…”
“…beautiful harmonies and gorgeous vocals.”
The ‘Rowntree Cadbury Milk remix’ received its UK debut on XFM, and was created especially for the single’s release by Blur drummer Dave Rowntree. This is Dave’s first remix outside of his work with Blur, and his reason for choosing The Cadbury Sisters was simple: ‘…with my name being Rowntree and theirs being Cadbury, I thought wouldn’t it be nice if we could merge the chocolate empires somehow?’. You can listen to it via The Cadbury Sisters’ SoundCloud.
Like all the interesting things in life, The Cadbury Sisters 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 Foxes, Daughter and First Aid Kitbefore 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 girls have already picked up support from the likes of Q Magazine and NME and the EP received a dual launch at The Islington, London and The Louisiana, Bristol. They’ve also picked up radio play from the likes of BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, BBC 6Music’s Tom Robinson, and XFM’s John Kennedy.
