Ever wonder what it would sound like if Depeche Mode went back in time to 1927, hit up the nearest whiskey still and grabbed a banjo? Probably pretty rad. Ever wish the Carter Family played at your prom–in 1985? Of course you have. Well, you’re in luck: the DeLorean Sisters have just the thing for you.
The Sisters are all children of the 80s with souls as old as the resin in your grandpappy’s corn cob pipe. Together they’ve taken to reimagining synth-pop hits and keytar karaoke staples as old timey, early 20th century Americana. Diane Wohland plays guitar and sings like a feather-haired angel; Lizzie Caplan adds some sweet, sassy vocals and Uke, Clive Thompson plays lead guitar and harmonica; Brian Braiker is on banjo, slide guitar, and Gary Lowery sings, hollers, washboards, and tinkles the meanest triangle you ever did hear. It’s Marty McFly with a washboard; Hank Williams in legwarmers. The Dust Bowl meets the Superbowl Shuffle.
You will never quite hear Toto the same way again. That’s a threat and a promise, sister!
