There’s a lot to like about Parkington Sisters’ music. The first thing you’re struck by are their voices. Ariel, Sarah, Nora, and Rose Parkington harmonize like nobody’s business. Like the singing sister trio The Roches, the Parkington’s (who are from Wellfleet, Massachusetts) are musically dynamic and diverse. They can rock a gorgeous murder ballad (“In The Pines’), fiddle with some Gypsy flavored weepy jazz (“Cruel”), and on songs like “Inside My Head” (download it below) they can out-charm Regina Spektor and give pause to Matt and Kim’s bubbly alt-rock. Each sister is a songwriter and their soaring harmonies are complimented by the fact that they are mulch-instrumentalists. The sisters debuted in 2011 with Till Voices Wake Us, recently released a new EP, Inside My Head, and are completing their second full length album due in 2014. The songs are fantastic, but at the end of the day it’s Parkington Sisters’ glorious harmonies that will draw you in to their music. Download the EP here; below download the perky “Inside My Head.”
