New Music of The Day – XLV : Drifting – The Cadbury Sisters

sarah-ep-cover-final_cadbury_sister_732_732Although known for ethereal folk vibes and sumptuous vocal harmonies, The Cadbury Sisters have set off down a new musical path. They have taken the more commercial elements of their music and combined them with ambient, drifting sound waves to create a wonderful new dream-pop place to exist. In their own words –

“For the new EP our influences are coming much more from bands like Bat For Lashes and HAIM rather than anything that could be considered folk. So I’d say this EP is definitely “pop” and ‘Drifting’ is very much a transition song which acts as a bridge between our old melancholic sound and our new, more upbeat direction… the song is about the passive breakdown of a relationship, and that moment where one or both people involved suddenly realise that something’s changed past the point of no return. It’s about the slow but sure decay of friendship when paths of communication become blocked for too long, and that feeling of utter loneliness that comes from being together in the same space physically, but worlds apart emotionally.”

The Sarah EP is out on 15 June via Fear Of Fiction.
