Innocent Eve is a duo made up of sisters Bec and Rachel, both singers and songwriters. They grew up on country, folk and Americana sung by their parents and grandparents, and they’ve been singing and performing together with their family since they were children. Innocent Eve came to be in 2014, with a debut album, Temporary Balms, released in 2015, and in 2016 there was an EP, True North, produced by Matt Fell.
The duo have returned to Fell for their new album, Viking, which will be released in the middle of this year. The title track has been released as a single (with the video available below). The clarion call to the listener comes early in the first verse and after that you’re on the hook; by the time the chorus arrives it’s a siren’s call, with the sisters’ inviting vocals, and the rest of the song passes as a rich dream. The song is a cautionary tale that is also about inevitability – the futility of caution when it’s not something you really want to hear.
Innocent Eve have appeared at the Tamworth Country Music Festival, Gympie Muster, Birdsville Big Red Bash, Music in the Mulga, Airlie Beach Festival of Music, Glenmaggie CMF, Tamar Valley Folk Festival and on board Cruisin’ Country.
