FKA Purple Pilgrims – sisters Clementine and Valentine Nixon make music that is at once spacious and sensual, swooning and spellbound – the unique nexus of paradise and isolation, beauty and bleakness, ritual and the right now. With a brand of Enchantress-Pop that often defies the bounds of genre, the sisters combine their crystalline voices – that soar, seduce and slow dive – with gleaming synths and guitars. The result sounds both futuristic and eternal, radiating a rich spectrum of archetypal experience: journeys, homecomings and great longing..
Raised in Hong Kong and New Zealand’s South Island by a family whose musical roots run deep, the sisters developed a unique inner language, a universe of secret worlds. Their music is the nexus of paradise and isolation, beauty and blankness, ritual and the right now.
Perfumed Earth, their sophomore album and Flying Nun debut which arrived in 2019, shimmers with veiled, kaleidoscopic textures. The sisters combine their ethereal voices with gleaming synthesisers and guitars that sound both futuristic and eternal, creating what Pitchfork calls “lush melodies, strands that wind and splay like a carpet of vine.”
The sisters are currently located in an isolated valley in New Zealand’s Coromandel Peninsula, where they live with their dog, Merlin, and a few thousand honey bees, ready to publish their new album as Clementine Valentine.
