Watson Twins launch August tour

Tuesday, July 6, 2010 – The Watson Twins are launching a 15-date tour in August through West Coast and midwest. The Kentucky-bred sisters will be touring in support of their sophomore album, "Talking To You, Talking To Me," released earlier this year on Vanguard Records.

Savin' You is the first video off the album, a video of the women rehearsing their soulful country tune, which premiered on Filter's website earlier today.

After the success of their 2006 collaboration with Jenny Lewis on "Rabbit Fur Coat," The Watson Twins released "Southern Manners" (2006 self-released EP) and 2008's "Fire Songs," their debut full length on Vanguard. Unlike their two previous releases, the twins began the new CD by exploring elements of R&B, Bossa Nova, indie pop and most prominently, classic soul to mix with the soft, mellow feel of their former releases.

CD review - Smoke Fire Nearly two years after the release of their acclaimed collaboration with Jenny Lewis ("Rabbit Fur Coat"), the Watson Twins step out of Lewis' considerable musical shadow with this solid solo release.

CD review - Southern Manners "I doubt if the texture of Southern life is any more grotesque than that of the rest of the nation," Flannery O'Connor told students at Notre Dame in 1957. Probably true. But there certainly is something in the southern air that seems to push an inquisitive spirit toward haunted storytelling. Fifty years after O'Connor's speech, the Watson Twins prove on this eight-song EP that they share the famous author's gothic sensibilities and interest in the shadowed corners of lineage. ...
