Electro-folk duo Saint Sister to headline homecoming show in Derry

Electro-folk duo Saint Sister are set to play a headline show at The Nerve Centre, this Saturday, November 20, 2021.

Wednesday, 17th November 2021, 12:16 pm
Gemma Doherty and Morgan McIntyre a.k.a Saint Sister.

The show is part of an Irish tour celebrating their acclaimed sophomore record, ‘Where I Should End.

Written on and off the tour cycle of their 2018 debut LP Shape of Silence, the album seeks to find meaning in a world that doesn’t stand still.

And although the stories behind the songs stem from the unravelling and rebuilding of relationships while on the road, 'Where I Should End' finds Derry harpist/arranger Gemma Doherty and vocalist/songwriter Morgana MacIntyre in a place of great certainty, and performing at their peak.

The duo, feeling boxed-in by the descriptor “atmosfolk” (a term coined for Saint Sister around their 2015 Madrid EP), challenged themselves to create a distinctive shift in their sound with their new album.

On 'Where I Should End', Doherty and MacIntyre built upon their already evocative, entwining vocals and rich, atmospheric melodies to craft varied and resonant soundscapes that radiate with a breathtaking new warmth.
