Megaharmony quartet Larissa Tandy with Strine Singers emerged in the last twelve months in a groundswell of brooding guitars, soaring harmonies, and accomplished, widescreen songwriting. After piquing the interest of heavyweights Tom Waits and Lucinda Williams, and simultaneously adding their first single to indie radio and country music television, this brother/sister-and-brother/sister outfit set about doing it all the hard way: sharing the wheel until they reached each empty corner of the country, playing show after show, singing their hearts out and winning their growing audience one listener at a time. With a live show that’s been described as “staggering” and “a warm embrace”, the hardworking Tandy and Rankin siblings have some very real momentum right now. Tandy heads for the hills in 2014, basing herself permanently in North America. They play one more show in their beloved home town Melbourne at the Yarra Hotel, Abbotsford on Wednesday 20th August with support from Isaac De Heer & the River Tracks.
