The Secret Sisters :: Saturn Return


The Secret Sisters, Laura en Lydia Rogers uit Alabama, verrasten de muziekwereld in 2017 met het meesterwerk You Don’t Own Me Anymore. Ze ontpopten zich als de moderne vrouwelijke variant van The Everly Brothers en Charlie & Ira Louvin. Nu, een kleine drie jaar later, is er dan eindelijk een opvolger. En Saturn Return is, hoewel totaal anders, even zo overweldigend. Opnieuw geproduceerd door Brandi Carlile zijn aan de traditionele roots en folk nu pop en psychedelica toegevoegd. Maar de liedjes zijn wederom exceptioneel, de teksten uitzonderlijk goed en de stemmen bovenaards. Hoogtepunt is het verkrachtingsnummer Cabin. ‘He did not have permission/but he had his way.’ Adembenemend!

Saturn Return is the Alabama-based duo’s second release for New West Records. Like its predecessor, 2017’s Grammy-nominated You Don’t Own Me Anymore, the record was produced by Brandi Carlile and Phil and Tim Hanseroth. The elements that made listeners fall in love with the band’s 2010 self-titled debut album— sweet, strong voices, carefully crafted musical arrangements, and soul-baring songwriting—are still present, but there’s also newfound confidence and individuality.
The album is named after an astrological occurrence in which the planet Saturn returns to the same place in the sky that it occupied at the moment of a person’s birth. During this phase, which happens approximately every 29 ½ years, said Laura, a woman “comes into her own and has this awakening in herself about who she is as a person. It can also be a very traumatic time where your whole world just seems to radically shift.”
