#62 Lily & Madeleine – Back To The River

How can someone so young sing words so sad? That Morrissey line comes to mind when listening to ‘Back To The River’, a deliciously maudlin offering from Lily & Madeleine. “If only my feet could fall as fast as a heart does/I would be so long gone/But I’m stuck, stuck under your thumb/I can’t get up,” the Jurkiewicz¬†sisters sing on this track from next month’s debut EP The Weight Of The Globe and there’s such weariness there you have to remind yourself they only total 34 years between them. Like pressure turns carbon into diamonds, the weight of the world has helped Lily & Madeleine produce something beautiful. An acoustic version is available here.
