Please meet two Danish sisters whose sound you should take notice of. If you haven't already, that is.
Frida and Sirid Møl Kristensen have a special sound together. And they really know how to write great songs.
They call themselves PRISMA, and together they create small wonders in the shape of darkened dream-pop songs. They use equal parts retro coolness, melancholy and then some melodies that almost keep playing in your inner ear long they have faded out.
The sisters discovered that they have a knack for writing music together in their childhood home where their father's office was filled with homebuilt guitars. With their fingers on the strings, Frida and Sirid quickly found out that they had something. Something bigger than themselves.
With an insistent intensity and two-part dreaminess, PRISMA creates atmospheric guitar-based pop songs that build worlds. Their sound is like a mix of the role models in The Raveonettes and Warpaint.
The duo has released two EPs, Here (2020) and Inside Out (2021), both of which have been critically acclaimed (there was one review in particular that really got worked up – only in Danish, sorry), and this has led to them kicking doors in and working their way upwards towards success. Danish radio has played them on a regular basis, and their touring schedule is really shaping up (whenever he current circumstances allow them to play).
On stage, they stand at the forefront, positioned across from and looking towards each other. As if they sing their songs to each other. There is an special sibling intimacy both in setup and expression – and you feel this in front of the stage. The harmonies are in perfect balance, and the music mixes the dreamy with the gently noisy, which leaves you completely enchanted.
