Charm of Finches are a Melbourne-based duo featuring young sisters Mabel and Ivy Windred-Wornes. Theirs is music to gaze at stars by and their dreamy folk sound is awash with their signature angelic sibling vocal harmonies and stunning song-writing.
They are winners of the 2017 National Folk Festival Gill Rees Young Musicians’ Award, and their debut album, Staring at the Starry Ceiling was named one of the best releases of 2016 by Radio National’s Paul Gough.
“For a duo so young to conjure a full album of music so candid and original as this is astonishing …. Charm of Finches sound like they’re mining something far more ancient and universal.” ~ Rhythms Magazine
“There’s also the simple beauty of family voices intertwining, with Charm Of Finches’ Mabel & Ivy – and even their names seem perfectly anachronistic for the folk purity of their music…slightly mystical alternate reality, maybe owing something to Joanna Newsom and that ilk. Despite – or perhaps because of – their youth, the music they make is affecting and emotional.” ~ The Music
“Charm of Finches make gorgeous chamber pop…their harmonies are immaculate and stirring as they move through an honest and, well, charming lyric.” ~ Tone Deaf
