Hull and Leeds-based duo CHAMBERS have released the video for their new single 'Sister Doom' out now via I’m Not From London Records.
“We couldn't pigeon hole our style into a term that suited the music, so eventually sister-doom became our own genre by accident” say the band “It's also an expression of the relationship we have through our music – an energy we both share equally, as well as our love of mystery, anticipation, and the unknown.”
Musically inspired by bands like Devotchka, Beirut and Taraf de Haidouks, guitarist Aeris Houlihan wrote the bridge and chorus sections of the single influenced by a trip to the Middle East, with the feel compounded by the intense Eastern European rhythmic playing from drummer Eleanor-Cara Churchill.
“I got into gypsy music quite obsessively in my third year of uni” explains Churchill “you can see the influence particularly on my hi-hat and bell work on Sister Doom. I got fully into gypsy music after seeing Beirut at Exit Festival in Serbia six years ago.”
