The Pierces

Make love with the lights on baby, tell me what you see
Clear the bed to lie on darlin', make a mess of me
The Pierces are singer-songwriters sisters Allison and Catherine based in New York City. Former ballerinas turned songstresses, they released their self-titled debut in 2000 with Epic but was met with lukewarm reception. 0pening a week’s worth of shows for Albert Hammond Jr. in November 2006 greeted the girls with much more enthusiastic reception.

With a psychedelic indie and folk sound, the sisters are compared over the years to Tori Amos, Sarah McLachlan, Shawn Colvin, the Indigo Girls and Sheryl Crow. When asked how they would want others to describe their music, the girls responded, "like a fever induced, gypsy dream that you have after drinking too much red wine while listening to a cabaret singer in a southern speakeasy that is run by witches".

"Boring" sounds like a good James Bond theme song.
