Though the duo--Kacey Underwood and Alice Costelloe--have respective roots in California and Britain, their appealing sonic blend has origins that seem less geographic than strikingly personal. Lights Out, their recent Mute Records debut, has a charm that anyone anywhere--at least anyone who's had a memorable personal relationship with another--will likely relate to.
Y! Music spoke with the band at this year's South By Southwest music conference in Austin last month and happily witnessed an intimate performance that--while perhaps lacking the stunning textures that make Lights Out so immediately memorable--was one of the high points of our Texas visit. Check out what they have to offer and prepare to be impressed.
