Parisian trio Oracle Sisters release ‘Most Of All’ – April 22nd
Dear Shaded Viewers,
‘Most Of All’ is the new track and video from Paris based dream rock trio ‘Oracle Sisters’, due for release April 22nd. A unique sonic pairing of old and new, the track is for fans of Whitney, Fleetwood Mac, Mac DeMarco and The Lemon Twigs.
‘Most Of All’ was originally conceived as a challenge by Lewis (lead guitar) and Chris (lead vocals) to come up with a melody for a pub ballad that can be “sung in the way that people stand on tables and bang their pints like gavels in bars across Ireland and Scotland around closing time”, countries they both lived in soaking up the roots folk and balladeer troubadour culture.
Chris presented the melody and they set about developing the song from there together. The song’s evolution took many turns, with and without a band, recorded on tape, on a church organ, and as stripped down as possible. In kind there are over 10 recorded versions of the song.
The video combined two ideas floating around, one was a love of the genre of Westerns: The Good, the Bad & The Ugly with the recent homage made in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. This is a world where good and evil wrestle out their ambiguities through heroes who are no less morally ambiguous. This, with the overriding class and social question implicated in the problems of climate change, and the current Covid-19 crisis. “Who survives, who profits and who suffers unjustly?” ponders Lewis.
‘Most Of All’ is a taste of what’s to come from a band determined to redefine pop culture on their own terms. Oracle Sisters are Lewis Lazar, Christopher Willatt and Julia Johansen.
‘Most Of All’ is released on April 22nd via 22TWENTY. For more information or advance listens please contact email@example.com.
