Alongside the news of their forthcoming self-titled debut album due 21st May via their own label Bathtime Sounds, Bristol/Brighton R&B infused folk duo Spang Sisters detail a sad story of loneliness and isolation on new cut ‘The Ballad of Joyce Vincent’.
The track recounts the story of Joyce Carol Vincent, who was found dead in her London home in 2006 almost three years after her death. “A woman whose perishing is unseen and unheard even by her neighbours. It comes out at a time when much of the world is struggling with these feelings and we hope it can serve as a small antidote and reminder of the universality of this ennui.”
Despite it’s somber subject matter, the track remains true to Spang Sisters’ laidback and seductive sound; blending catchy pop qualities with folky guitars and soft melodies. It’s a promise of a unique and exciting album from a creative duo with mounds of potential.
