There’s more to Irish twins Ellie and Louise Macnamara than their shared DNA. The sisters are also band mates, churning out melodic folk-pop songs under the name Heathers. Already gaining traction in Ireland and the U.K., Heathers have supported the likes of Kimya Dawson of the Moldy Peaches and crooner Paolo Nutini.
ANDPOP caught up with the duo as they performed an acoustic version of “Forget Me Knot” from their new album Kingdom at Toronto’s An Sibin Irish pub. The Macnamara twins also took the time to explain the deep personal meaning behind the song, as well as chat about who has inspired them the most.
