The journey began in 2006, when The Watson Twins self-released their first EP Southern Manners, as well as Rabbit Fur Coat, (Team Love), the critically acclaimed collaboration with Jenny Lewis. In the next four years, the group released two more albums Fire Songs, and Talking To You, Talking To Me, on legendary folk/jazz label Vanguard Records. Their latest recording, Night Covers, (Self-Release) is a collection of cover songs pulling from influences and favorites spanning the last five decades.
Over the years, the sisters have put their spin on a handful of covers, including a languid southern gothic version of The Cure’s “Just Like Heaven“ that was featured on both Fire Songs, and the Grammy-nominated True Blood Soundtrack Season 1. The overwhelming response to this cover song and others played on the road, inspired The Watson Twins to head back in the studio and record Night Covers.
Although the original songs range greatly in style, the twins make them unique by adding their signature harmonies and crooning vocal melodies. Recorded in one week at New Monkey Studio in Van Nuys, CA, the EP’s live intimate sound showcases both the players’ skillfulness and a gentle restraint that weaves a sonic landscape reflecting the Indie-folk, Americana and Soul spirit of their previous albums.
The Watson Twins will be touring throughout the year, playing familiar songs from earlier records and previewing new ones from their forthcoming full-length album (2012). Returning to their roots with the self-release of Night Covers, the twins show their dedication to making music that is both personal and heartfelt.
