Adelaide sisters Germein have the kind of close musical partnership that can only be shared by siblings and are kicking off 2018 with a brand-new sound and confidence with the single ‘Talking’.
Whether jamming together at their home in the Adelaide Hills, playing alongside Arcade Fire and Catfish & the Bottlemen at the Isle of Wight festival or opening UK stadium shows for Little Mix, it’s their mutual connection to music that has seen sisters Georgia, Ella and Clara make their mark in music while staying under the radar…. Until now.
Taking their lead from strong artists like Haim, Chvrches and Tegan & Sara, the sisters aren’t afraid to explore a wide palate of musical styles, while keeping a firm hand on pop sensibilities. While they have previously toured the world and released music independently, the new single ‘Talking” is the first taste of a new Germein, created and recorded and produced at home by Georgia with mixing by acclaimed mixer John Castle (Dean Lewis, Cub Sport, Washington).
“As siblings, we’ve been playing together for so long that the band had become second nature to us,” said Georgia. “We realised that it was time to take control for ourselves and really start making the music that we want to make on our own terms. We hit play on ‘Talking’ and know it’s the musical vision we’ve had for ourselves finally coming to life.”
‘Talking’ shows Germein at their best, mixing their close three-part harmonies with a soaring break-out chorus. The song is a strong statement from the all-female act and will launch in Sydney on the eve of International Women’s Day, March 7.
“We are proud that we’ve been able to march forward and prove to the world that we can make it doing what we love regardless of being young and female,” said Clara. “Whether it’s raised eyebrows when you tell someone that you’re a drummer or not believing we really write our own material, we are happy to tackle the stereotypes as women in the industry and we can’t think of a better time to launch ‘Talking’ live than on the eve of International Women’s Day.”
