We talk Coldplay, Cali and Creation during our afternoon hang-out with The Pierces.
It’s been a lengthy three years since Catherine and Allison Pierce released their last full-length record ‘You & I’.
This Spring sees the Alabama sisters return to triumphant form with their brand new offering ‘Creation’ which has already seen approval from Coldplay’s Chris Martin and bassist Guy Berryman, who discovered the band and invited them to play alongside them on tour in 2011.
After a brief stint living in London’s East End, the siblings now reside in sunny California which might be partly to blame for the inspiration behind their ‘Euphoric pop’ sound which can be heard on new single ‘Believe In Me’.
We spent the afternoon with the pair and a whole bunch of taxidermy at The Kings Head private members club on their old stomping ground in the East End of the capital.
The Pierces make their live return to the UK this coming June.
