Vegan sisters Siddy and Kit Bennett provide much of the emotional strength behind Wildflowers. Now, alongside a few token guys (James Ashbury & Kendal Sant), they’re releasing their debut album ‘On The Inside’.
The romanticising lyricism and folky-pop Americana featured is a blend of Dixie Chicks, Gillian Welch, Sarah Jarosz & Alison Krauss – with songs such as ‘Friends’ and ‘Let It Go’ advising the listener to appreciate relationships for what they are, rather than what we may want them to be. A particular stand-out is the title track ‘On The Inside’, a love song without naivety which plaintively asks: “You’re good to go, but what I need to know/ Is/ Are you beautiful on the inside?”
