Listen :: Tall Poppies - Now
Words: Ellie Ward
Comprised of Australian identical twins Susan and Catherine Hay on vocals and guitar, with violinist Diarmuid Nugent and Doug Fink - previously the drummer in Noah and the Whale - the east London-based Tall Poppies blend melodic indie pop with a twist.
New single 'Now' is out on November 24, is the first we have heard of them since 'Cat Got Your Tongue?' early last year, and showcases their quirky edge built around entrancing harmonies and Diarmuid Nugent's adept violin playing.
Working with London-based producer Brian O'Shaughnessy (Primal Scream) and Paul Tipler (Idlewild, The Horrors), the Poppies have a new album, 'Let's Go Out', in the pipeline and set for release early in 2018.
Tall Poppies play a launch show on November 24 at the Luna Lounge in Leytonstone, east London, followed by The Harrison, WC1 on November 25.
