The undisputed riders of the heart, Oracle Sisters, share new single ‘I Don’t Wanna Move’ taken from their forthcoming EP ‘Paris II’.
The ‘Painted Ladies’ of San Francisco are a picturesque sight to behold. As artist Butch Kardum picked up his brush of technicolour intuition, the houses embodied the cosmic-personas of their inhabitants- a ‘Colourist Movement’ which bathed the streets of Haight-Ashbury everywhere from amber blue to yellow- the colour of Joan Baez’s true love’s hair.
Whilst a couple of decades further down the line and on a whole other continent entirely, Oracle Sisters are too in the process of aestheticising a utopia of their own. Inspired by the interchangeable-serenity of their Parisian dwellings, ‘I Don’t Wanna Move’ acoustically explores “the darker sides of the psyche” whilst turning strummed daylight into captured joy; as though it were a garland of suncatchers strung up high in the window of a bell-tower for the world at large to bask in.
To listen to Oracle Sisters is to fall in love a thousand times in slumber, and wake up forever at peace with the night. Florally delicate whilst revitalising their central iconography- like the metropolitan romanticisation of a DKNY ‘Be Delicious commercial, here, the trio soar over duetted simplicities with effortless taste and ‘I Don’t Wanna Move’ is the enchanting epitome of blushed cheeks and freshly perfumed ideals.
‘I Don’t Wanna Move’ is radiantly-raptured and conclusively, you know you’re on to a new-favourite when all can agree that “that was a good take.” For similar too was said by Devendra Banhart at the end of his croon-y ‘Carmensita’, and much like Oracle Sisters, both are demonstrative experts of dreamily good takes.
