Anything involving Alabama has been a nightmarish wildfire of late, with clownish politicians, religious hubris, and an outpouring of negativity toward the Midwest and South. So I guess it needs to be said that beauty can still be unearthed in that region. Some of that beauty is courtesy of the Secret Sisters, a literal sister duo who have been concocting a sound that is what happens when First Aid Kit grow up on the banks of Muscle Shoals. The Secret Sisters coax their reedy alto voices into ruby dawn harmonies, imbued with the warmest of sentimental energies. Despite their name, there’s no actual mystery with Secret Sisters—they clearly developed their vocal tone in their hometown church as children and sanded it till smooth in adulthood. But considering that this country’s been hurtling downward since its inception, it feels real nice to listen to a simple yet classically beautiful gem like the Secret Sisters, a gem brought to clarity in America’s heartland.
