Let the revival of The Mamas & the Papas begin! Today’s Daily Tune is from NYC-based sisters, Catherine & Allison Pierce, and their new single ‘You’ll Be Mine’. Over the last couple of weeks no song has gotten more airplay on any of my various music listening devices, than this gorgeously obvious homage to late-60s folk music. In short, you MUST listen to this song. I absolutely, categorically defy any of you to listen to this song a few times and not be completely hooked!
The Pierces have been releasing music for over a decade and grew up in Birmingham, Alabama. They were raised by hippie parents and their music has been featured in shows such as Gossip Girl and Dexter; so you may have already heard their music and not known it was them. I’ve known about them for years and always had the feeling that they were one song away from hitting the big time.
The last few years have seen The Pierces release their third album, Thirteen Tales of Love and Revenge, and a few EPs. You’ll Be Mine is the title track to their upcoming EP and I really hope that they have turned a corner with its release, as I am a H-U-G-E fan of The Mamas & the Papas and had been wondering for years why there hadn’t yet been a revival of that gorgeous sound.
Be sure to take a look at The Pierces new video for You’ll Be Mine and keep an eye open for their new EP of the same name, hitting stores 7 March on Lizard King Records.
