Paris-based trio Oracle Sisters make music that is at once melodic, poetic, and visionary. Working with the lightning speed afforded by the simplicity of a piano and a guitar, they construct complexity through their lyrics which stem from thoughts and observations of everyday life to the broader planes of symbolism. Their melodies, intertwined with harmony, always strive to uplift and surprise in the spirit of a great pop song coupled with the depth and feeling of a timeless folk song. This unique sound conjured through years of writing around kitchen tables and experimenting in the studio comes to full fruition on their debut album, Hydranism.
Born from a friendship almost forgotten, from the flatlands of Belgium, and later scattered between New York and Edinburgh. Lewis Lazar and Christopher Willatt discovered an instinctive songwriting connection as teenagers, staying in touch after leaving home to make their way in the world. In 2017, they moved to Paris to give their songwriting partnership a home on the promise of part time work booking artists at a cabaret. It is here they met Finnish songwriter and drummer Julia Johansen.
The trio released two EPs to critical acclaim in 2020 and 2021. Aptly titled Paris I and Paris II, the songs reflect their newly adopted home and were supported by sold out shows across Europe. Their songs have been streamed over 25 million times by fans across the globe and garnered the support from notable radio stations such as BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 6, KCRW, KEXP, Radio Nova, France Inter, and many more.
Oracle Sisters decamped to Hydra, Greece to write and record their debut album, Hydranism, which is set to be released in early 2023. Recorded over the course of two months, the 11-track album reflects a world suspended in time between the future and the past, and embraces larger than life ballads, intimate folk songs, and table-thumping rousers spun with the silk of poetic reveries.
