About Saint Sister
Saint Sister, formed in November 2014, is the creation of Morgan MacIntyre and Gemma Doherty. Their music draws from early Celtic harp traditions, 60s folk and electronic pop to create ‘atmosfolk'—a mix of soulful vocal harmonies, dreamy synth and electro-acoustic harp.
Following an early performance on Irish national television, one of their first gigs saw them open the stage for Arcade Fire’s Will Butler. Their debut EP ‘Madrid’, recorded with Alex Ryan (bassist with Hozier), was released on November 13th 2015 on Trout Records. Reception to Madrid at home and abroad was positive, with the lead single playlisted on RTE1 and TXFM. It was also championed by Huw Stephens and Phil Taggart on BBC Radio 1, and further afield on Australian national radio, ABC.
In winter 2015, the band toured extensively around Ireland and played their first (sold out) headline show in Dublin. An impressive live performance on RTE's Other Voices aired in January ahead of the bands first European show in the Trianon, Paris, alongside O Wonder and Frances. They made their US debut in March with multiple showcases at SXSW, Texas.
In May, the band embarked on their first UK tour, with a headline show in London, two slots at The Great Escape, and returned to play a sold out show in Dublin's Unitarian Church. This summer they also played numerous festivals, including Electric Picnic, Longitude, Indiependence and Body & Soul.
