This is one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard. Made even more impressive by the fact that the melancholy vocals come from two sisters under the age of 18. Lily (16) and Madeleine (18) from Indianapolis only started putting their music onto YouTube last year, but were soon snapped up by Sufjan Stevens' label Asthmatic Kitty to make a full-length release of their forlorn folk pop. With a sorrowful outlook way beyond their years, it really is the stuff of dreams. Increeeeeeedibly sad dreams.
With Madeleine just starting college and Lily still in high school, these are two talented sisters with their feet firmly on the ground. For now.
Lily & Madeleine's self-titled debut album is released on 29th October.
