It's in the blood. Introducing Lock, sisters Edie and Gita.
Edie and Gita grew up with musical Stockholm Syndrome. Members of a large family of musicians, the girls were raised on The Mamas & The Papas, Bob Dylan and The Beatles. They were classically trained at an early age and began performing alongside their other siblings. However, the pair were drawn towards a darker side; in secret they watched and re-watched Betty Blue and Twin Peaks, and fell asleep to the haunting vocals of Julee Cruise.
Come adulthood. Edie worked as a touring musician, singing with Carl Barat and Adam Green, and recording with Mark Ronson. Gita toured as a violinist with The Streets, Beyonce, Jay-Z, Band of Horses, Serj Tankian and many other huge artists.
But blood runs thick and the sisters were reunited in London, writing music to complement their striking harmonies, with the likes of Dimitri Tikovoi (Charli XCX, Mikky Ekko), Neil Athale (Ella Eyre, Becky Hill) and Ed Harcourt (Lissie, Paloma Faith).
The results, a suite of dark, wide-screen hyper ballads, inspired by the movie soundtracks of their childhood, the loneliness of touring and the romance of runaways.
Fusing the reverb drenched vocals of Mazzy Star, the minimalist beats of The Knife and the soaring melancholy melodies of Susanne Sundfør, Lock couple a universal human vulnerability with a commanding confidence. These songs live in the mysteries behind closed doors, in the natural darkness of life, in the blood.
Lock released their debut single 'Click' on 10th July 2015 on Raygun Music. Watch this space for their album!
