Sister Species with Shawn Neary

Guitarist Abby Kastrul and accordionist Emily Kastrul (Betazoid, Hazel Ra) transform two decades of sibling rivalry into raw, unapologetic, orchestral pop songs. With their first full-length album Closer Now, Sister Species showcases a sound matured as a 7-piece ensemble. Featuring Jake Baldwin (Har Mar Superstar, McNasty Brass Band), Ryan Hays (Matra), Lars Johnson (McNasty Brass Band), Sten Johnson (McNasty Brass Band, New Sound Underground), and Noah Ophoven-Baldwin (Percheron, Six Families, Drone Band), Closer Now’s intricate 3-part trumpet arrangements and driving beats lift the sisters’ harmonies into refreshing new territory. Sister Species is working on their second full-length album, due in 2018.
