Today, Song Sung, made of up of twin sisters Georgina and Una McGeough, announce their debut EP 'I Surrender', which is set for release March 27th via Night Time Stories and are sharing the first single & video from the record, "Come To The Water".
Speaking about the new single, Georgina of Song Sung said "‘Come to the Water' is a song caught somewhere between obsession and vulnerability. There’s a fragility in the tone, a yearning within and an uncertainty in the end."
Twin sisters, Georgina and Una McGeough who comprise Song Sung, grew up in Monaghan, a gnat’s width away from the border with Northern Ireland.
Over a decade ago, they moved to New York, where they’ve been resident ever since, somehow forging careers in the art world, while simultaneously managing to amass this vast catalogue of material in, quite frankly, the most unorthodox way imaginable (possibly contributing to the idiosyncrasies of their songwriting). “We make melodies using alternative ways, but we also dabble in software” explains Georgina, “in the beginning, we created melodies by using our own vocals over some of our favorite music. Our first apartment in the East Village, was located above a bar and our back room was situated directly above the DJ booth. This is going to sound ridiculous, but it’s true, we started making melodies over the bass of the tracks coming through the floor from the bar below.” From that, a process of layering vocals, however obscure, was how the band started to formulate songs.
The first inkling of an interesting new talent came with the release of David Holmes’ acclaimed Late Night Tales release in 2016, which included the duo’s mesmeric reading of 10CC’s "I’m Not In Love", which is featured on the 'I Surrender'EP. This initial crossover with Holmes was the beginning of their journey together.
Holmes co-wrote and produced the EP with fellow composer and Unloved band-mate Keefus Ciancia (True Detective / The Ladykillers). The pair have a long-standing working relationship and have worked on numerous scores including The Fall and Killing Eve (for which they won a BAFTA) as well as both Unloved albums.
Song Sung will release their debut EP 'I Surrender' on March 27th, with a forthcoming album also set for release later this year.
