Introducing Interview: The Frampton Sisters

Hi, welcome to Get In Her Ears! Can you tell us a bit about the band?
We are sisters from East Sussex that sing and play folky pop. We grew up on the Orkney Isles where we learned to read and write music, as every child on the island learns to play the fiddle, or some sort of instrument! Growing up here started our music interests, plus our parents were also both musical, so encouraged us a lot.

How did you initially all get together and start creating music?
We have always played music together; starting in our family band when we were five and seven! When we moved South we started to take it more seriously, performing at various venues and events around the area.

Your new single ‘Birds Of A Feather’ is out now – can you tell us what it’s all about?
The track is simply about everybody and everything; how when it comes down to it, we are all the same, and that we should accept everyone for who and what they are.

You’ve been compared to the likes of First Aid Fit and Lily & Madeleine, but who would you say are your main musical influences?
We enjoy all sorts of styles of music, but our influencers would start with Van Morrison, The Carpenters, Taylor Swift and Passenger. To name a few! 

How is your local music scene? Do you go to see lots of live music?
There are many musical venues around us which support local musicians – encouraging them to perform their own material. We quite often watch other bands when we play at these venues. 

And what can fans expect from your live shows?
They can expect thought-provoking storytelling songs, close harmonies and some fun sisterly banter. 

As we’re a new music focused site, are there any new/upcoming bands or artists you’d recommend we check out?
A band called Infrared, who are also from East Sussex. They are just starting to make it on the music scene and are really great!

And how do you feel the music industry is for new bands at the moment – would you say it’s difficult to get noticed?
As we have so much support from people in the area, we haven’t found gigs and performing difficult. We suppose it is hard to get noticed, but we are on our way, and we are happy to take it slow. 

Finally, what does the rest of 2019 have in store for The Frampton Sisters?
Charlie has just started a degree in Performing Arts and Professional Dance, so she is super busy! And Freddie, having just had a baby, is also quite busy. But we are very much still focusing on songwriting and gigging, as that’s what we enjoy. We plan to release some new tracks in the coming months, which is exciting! 

Big thanks to The Frampton Sisters for answering our questions!
