We've been big fans of New Zealand sisters Valentine + Clementine Nixon aka Purple Pilgrims since we heard their beautiful debut on Not Not Fun a few years back, an enchanting, hazy collection of what the duo calls "ancient imagery expressed through a modern lens – folks songs played on synthesized instruments...
I imagine the pilgrims recording their light filled music in beautiful fields somewhere. Electric guitarist Tom Healy has worked with them on some of their more recent work.
They are two sisters, Clementine and Valentine. They live in a place called The Coromandel. They have played a couple of shows with us, and this song in particular always makes me so happy. -- Tiny Ruins
