“Anglo/Americana” they call it, this punch of diluted flavours: a teeny bit folky, a teeny bit country, a teeny, teeny bit blues-rocky. Really, it’s just MOR adult pop, and these two sisters and a cousin from Exeter are at their best when their three-part harmonies approach (from a distance) the gutsiness of Haim on Run, with its big, shameless heartbeat drums and hooky chorus. Less winning are the wafty Dove, with its off-the-peg alt-reverb, or the naff, stomping-Boudicca braggadocio of Warrior Daughter, weak chimeras of current stylings. Still, the swoop and swell of their voices together can’t help but please the ear, and they’ll likely go far.
