This Halifax trio - including two twin sisters (Romy and Sari Lightman) - that can best be described as hauntingly beautiful. I know that is a term that gets tossed around for anyone that uses strings and creaky melodies, but if you listen to this band's tracks, you will agree.

Mixing mandolin and guitar with folky vocals, Ghost Bees comes across as a more accessible Joanna Newsom or avant-garde, folky shoegaze (the driving guitar - albeit acoustic - and vocals on Rebel's Sin would please any fan of head down nodding). I'd like to avoid the obvious mention of how the girl's vocals float around each others (as those comparisons have long since been used up for another Canadian set of musical twins), but the familiarity allows Romy and Sari to push forward and fade back at just the right times.
