With mesmerizing ethereal harmonies, The Chapin Sisters have made a triumphant return to the music world with their sophomore album, Two.
For Lily and Abigail Chapin, they have turned the indie music world on its ear with their latest album, Two released today! Two takes a unique turn in their evolution of their sound by expanding their musical horizons. This album creates an environment of free spirited harmonies that you can enjoy on a summer’s day. With Jesse Lee and Louie Stephens as co-producers, Two displays a positive, gradual progression in their unique sound. When you hear this album, you will think and feel that you are in a world where all is calm and serene.
Each of the tracks tells a different story. The first track, Sweet Light, starts out as as dark acapella piece that captures your imagination and attention at the same time. Once the instruments join in halfway into the piece, you are in the zone. It was this track that captured my attention for the group and made me want to keep on listening! I Can Feel and Paradise are love songs in their own rites. While I Can Feel tells the tale of a lover’s pain from an enduring heartache, Paradise is a song about love mixed with the dark-enriched harmonies of the unique group. As you progress through the album, you would find the songs touch on the relationships that have gone bad. All of a sudden, Left All Alone brings the tempo back up with a soothing flow of happy-go-lucky feelings. One of the best tracks of the Two is the last track entitled Trouble. The song takes the heart and song of the blues without singing about it. You have never heard such sweet harmonies of a bluesy track before that you have to praise their efforts.
It’s very hard to believe that The Chapin Sisters are only sophomores to the music world. Two is very unique, simplistic, and amazing. While there is a hint of melacholy in most of the tracks, Two is an album that you do not want to miss!
