Bristol trio The Cadbury Sisters have released a music video for their track 'Fire' which features on their recently released debut EP 'Close', out now on Fear Of Fiction records.
There's a dull, warmth to the video quality which seems to match the atmospheric vibe of the echoing harmonies and simple melody. It features the profile of each singer's face singing to a reflection of themselves, before the trio join together to sing in unison at the song's climax.
The Cadbury Sisters; who are Jessica, Mary and Lucy Cadbury; have garnered much attention over the past few months, particularly in the case of their namesake which indeed refers to the fact they are the heirs of Lord Cadbury himself. With this in mind, a collaboration with Blur drummer Dave Rowntree was too good an opportunity to miss when he joined them on a mix of their single 'Milk'. The band are currently supporting their new EP with a UK tour which includes several big festival dates.

Folk, alt folk, indie folk. In recent years, music fans have seen the genre split and mutate, taking many different forms. For The Cadbury Sisters though, they've made their name on their pure, honest vocal harmonies, amalgamating this with an edgier sound. Recent highlights for the band have included working with Blur's Dave Rowntree on a remix of their single 'Milk' plus the band have an array of shows and festivals booked throughout summer, only fresh from playing Brighton's Great Escape Festival. Their EP 'Close' is out on June 16th via Fear of Fiction Records - Lucy Cadbury took some time out of their busy schedule to talk to Contactmusic.com.
Contactmusic: When and why did you decide to form the band together?
Lucy Cadbury: The idea of forming a band begun after Jess came home from uni one summer and told us she'd started jamming with some friends. At the same time, I had been fooling around on guitar in my bedroom, playing covers of Dire Straits and The Stranglers. Me and Jess decided to go sing at a local open mic night and enjoyed it so much we continued doing it whenever we were back home, and Mary wanted in!
CM: What's it like being in a band of sisters?
LC: I love being in a band with my two best friends. There is something special about a sister relationship, but I think that's also what makes it pretty challenging sometimes, especially when it comes to song writing. When one of us brings a song idea to the table, it usually comes from real emotion and experience. There are a couple of songs on the new EP where we have used our lyrics to tell each other how we are feeling, and I think that comes across in our live performances too.
