A few years ago sister duo The Pierces released their third album ‘Thirteen Tales of Love and Revenge.’ It was cold, chilly and full of murderous intentions. Unfortunately only about 7 other people seemed to have heard it when I saw them perform a dingy little gig at the 12 Bar in London back in 2007.
Since then they appeared on Gossip Girl, and ‘Secret’ is currently being used in the (awful) title sequence to trashy, yet amazing spooky US teen drama ‘Pretty Little Liars’. Most inexplicably though, they’ve been signed to Polydor in the UK. I mean I love them, but it seems totally random. They’re in the UK at the moment and play London on 12th October, before heading up to In The City and then returning in December to support Lissie in what will be an extremely all American, Fleetwood Mac, sounding show. I reviewed them last time for hit40uk but my review has vanished offline with the show. As far as I can remember, we spent the whole show on edge unsure if they were about to snog or stab each other. Well worth an evening out.
Here’s the video for ‘Love You More’, produced by Guy from Coldplay (the hot one) which comes out as part of an EP on October 25.
