Although they formed six years ago, Twin Sister Duo Heathers finally are getting their big break, starting with Canada first in their North American debut. 22-year-olds Ellie and Louise Macnamara hail from Dublin, Ireland. Although their Folk-Rock influences range from Bruce Springsteen to Simon & Garfunkel, they are avid Pop Fans through and through. “We listen to a lot of Pop like Katy Perry“, Ellie tells me. “We love Katy Perry and everything to Santigold and even Nicki Minaj.”. They’d even go as far as to describe their new sound as being “dancey”.
As part of their Promotion today in support of brand new Disc Kingdom, select Media got to tour Toronto with Heathers on a Sightseeing Trolley Tour around the City where even longtime Torontonians like me learned some interesting facts about our City. For example, I had no clue the CN Tower is built on man-made land. For real!
Although the Sisters have been here for a couple days, they admit to loving Toronto and with their schedule filled with work, work, work, tomorrow they will be taking some time out to peruse the Fashions of Queen Street. “We did check-out Eaton Centre and enjoyed some Frozen Yogurt!”, although sadly they not get much shopping done.
In the meantime, enjoy their fantastic new Single Forget Me Knots:
It’s alright not to feel okay, indeed. Who can relate?
