International breakout sensation Heathers are twin sisters Ellie and Louise Macnamara.
Formed in 2007, the 23-year-olds found instant international success with their first album ‘Here, Not There’, an acoustic-only project that garnered widespread acclaim amongst both fans and media for its unique melodic hooks and extraordinary vocals. On the heels of the record, Heathers developed an underground following both in Ireland and the DIY scene in the United States.
Heathers released their second album ‘Kingdom’ in September 2012, with ‘Forget Me Knots’ as the first single. In 2014 the album is scheduled for release in the USA - both the single and album have already received critical acclaim from overseas markets, with ‘Forget Me Knots’ becoming a firm favourite on US radio.
In Ireland ‘Kingdom’ was nominated for the prestigious Choice Music Prize, an annual music prize awarded to the best album in the country. The Sunday Business Post called the album a “lush, captivating experience” that fans could “take home and live with for a long time.” The Irish Times agreed, stating that tracks from the album “embed themselves after just one listen.” Irish Mail on Sunday boldly declared “Heathers new album 'Kingdom' is one of the best Irish albums of the year” whilst Music Week credited the pair’s style with “burning, urgent poignancy, dual vocals and catchy harmonies”.
The duo are excited to bring their internationally-praised sound all over Europe, the US and Canada in 2014, as well as to territories like Malaysia, Japan, Australia and New Zealand to further support the album.
