The Pierces @ L' Album de la Semaine Canal+ Feb 2nd 2009


American Pop-folk duet The Pierces are in Paris to promote their latest record.
Principal members are two lovely sisters one blonde and one brunette on vocals, plus a beautiful Violin player and two guys playing drums and acoustic guitars.
I was a bit afraid when they played their first song , a kind of Pop-folk with some tiny traditional Irish influences ( for the violin ) that could remind you of The Corrs.
The stage moves between the two singers are ( too ) perfectly executed, very american. After a couple of songs you start getting into it slowly and then you like it.
Even if you don't know if it's because of the music of the perfect plastic of both sisters-singers.
The only problem is that everything is too perfect , something's missing : a spark
7 songs are on the setlist , they had to redo one because of some sound interferences on the violin, then the show went smoothly. They came back for an encore , did one song unfortunately during the second one the voice of the blonde singer gave up so they had to put an end to the performance.
Enjoyable evening.
