The Bowmans are twin sisters from NYC via Iowa, whose new record, Far From Home, is a delightful blend of Americana and indie-folk that, according to the band, is "infused with the glee of little children".
The twins, who claim Cat Power, Gillian Welch, Nick Drake, and Neutral Milk Hotel (among others) as influences, have the uncanny chemistry that only comes from making music together since birth. I'm a total sucker for Eisley-esque harmonies, the kind where you can't tell where one voice ends and the other begins, and The Bowmans have the gift.
