Guitarist Abby Kastrul and accordionist Emily Kastrul (Betazoid, Hazel Ra) transform two decades of sibling rivalry into raw, vibrant, orchestral pop songs. With their debut LP Closer Now, SisterSpecies showcased a sound matured as a 7-piece ensemble. Featuring Jake Baldwin (Har Mar Superstar, McNasty Brass Band), Ryan Hays (Matra), Lars Johnson (McNasty Brass Band), Sten Johnson (McNasty Brass Band, New Sound Underground), and Noah Ophoven-Baldwin (Percheron, Six Families, Drone Band), Closer Now’s intricate 3-part trumpet arrangements and driving beats lifted the sisters' harmonies into refreshing new territory.
Sister Species is overjoyed to release their second full-length album Heavy Things Do Move in November of 2018. With the addition of Adam Zahller (Six Families, GUITARband), and hilighting contributions from Andrew Thoreen (Har-di-Har, and and end), Julie Thoreen (Har-di-Har, Real Judy), Tara Loeper (Artemis, Betazoid), Lisa Harrigan (Betazoid), and Matt Olson (Robot Slide), SisterSpecies' new chamber-pop album reflects their deepened collaborative relationships.
