Occasionally, you run across a song that hits your ears in such a way that you don’t know what to do with yourself after. Having just heard the above, I’m left a little speechless. It’s off The Pierces’ fourth and most recent release, You & I, which debuted at #4 on the UK charts in May.

Sadly, I only just discovered The Pierces, a melodic NYC-based duo composed of two Alabamian sisters, Catherine and Allison Pierce. Raised on classic American folk, the influence of old-timey sounds and strong female singer-songwriter roots are evident.

Consider the lyrics in this playfully sinister track:

“Cuz two can keep a secret if one of them is dead…”

And I’m particularly enamored by their amazing video for “Turn on Billie”:

I think I’m in love ♥
