Portland sister trio Joseph, whose new album ‘I’m Alone, No You’re Not’ debuted at No.1 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart, will return to the UK in June for further shows. The band, who recently sold out their Union Chapel show, will perform at Shoreditch Town Hall on 30th June. Joseph’s new single ‘S.O.S (Overboard)’, is the second track to be added to Radio 2’s playlist.
Currently touring across the US and scheduled to appear twice at Coachella, the sisters recently performed on ‘Later… with Jools Holland: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WU1aZrJaRYQ
‘I’m Alone, No You’re Not’ was produced by Mike Mogis (First Aid Kit, Bright Eyes, Jenny Lewis), and features eleven original songs exploding with a mystical exuberance and heart-on-sleeve emotion. There is nothing like the sound of siblings singing together. Whether it’s the Beach Boys, the EverlyBrothers or First Aid Kit, absorbing the same breathing rhythms and speech patterns adds an element to vocal harmonies that can be pure magic.With ‘I’m Alone, No You’re Not’ (ATO Records), the mesmerising, hypnotic sound of sisters Allison, Meegan, and Natalie Closner, joins this elite company.
Choosing their name in deference to their grandfather Jo, and the tiny Oregon town of Joseph where he lived, Natalie Closner and her younger twin sisters Meegan and Allison, grew up in a musical household, but didn’t sing together until just a few years ago. Joseph officially formed when Natalie, an aspiring performer looking for a creative jolt, asked her sisters to form a band together. They quickly discovered their gift for songwriting and vocal alchemy.
‘I’m Alone, No You’re Not’ is a masterclass in pristine 3-part harmony, traversing melodies and rhythms that are indelible and ambitious. Lead single 'White Flag' is a cathartic rallying cry, with the sisters’ voices starting as a hum, then verging on a scream by the chorus. The anthemic album opener, ‘Canyon,' channels Fleetwood Mac at their soaring finest. Elsewhere golden, shimmering pop songs are tucked next to the most delicate ballads: love lost and found, amplified by three unwavering voices.
