In this edition of The Last Mixed Tape’s song-of-the-week feature The Mixed-Tape, we turn our attention to “Is It Too Early (Kilmainham)”.
Marking a sure-footed sonic sea change for Siant Sister, the duo’s comeback single ‘Is It Too Early (Kilmainham)’ merges their naturally enchanting vocal harmonies with a production populated by vivid synth textures with undercutting crunching beats.
A dreamlike track awash with obscured hazy sounds, ‘Is It Too Early (Kilmainham)’ finds Saint Sister conveying the homesickness and anxiety from touring via powerful but subtle songwriting that’s abstract but clear.
