Tall Poppies are eccentric indie-pop four piece fronted by identical twin sister songstresses Susan and Catherine on vocals, bass and guitar with Diarmuid pulling at heart strings on violin and Doug injecting the energy and danceability on drums.
Songs are drafted over cups of tea and chocolate biscuits during gossip sessions about men, friends, the latest novel and the dramas of working life. Snippets of sisterly chat often bloom into songs as guitars lie in laps dusted with chocolate crumbs. Lyrically they tell stories of the everyday and the unusual, the melancholic and comical. The twins met Diarmuid in London and it was not long before his graceful string lines accompanied the entire set, Doug Fink (formerly of Noah and the Whale) joined in adding more flare and completing the sound with his lively beat.
