The Watson Twins, Nikki & The Phantom Callers
CL Critic Hal Horowtiz Recommends: It has been a while, five years actually, since we’ve heard from identical twins Chandra and Leigh, but their sumptuous harmonies and rootsy pop songs are in full flight on their newly-released Holler. Combine the vocal sounds of the Everly Brothers, add some Secret Sisters to the mix, and you’ve got a charming approach that should sound great in this intimate venue. — HH
CL Critic Jessica Goodson Recommends: There’s a lot of southern rock bands in Georgia, but there’s only one Nikki Speake. Speake and her Phantom Callers bring us that nostalgic southern rock sound with a bit of everything else thrown into it. Her smooth and twangy voice perfectly fit the heavy gothic themes of the music. The band brings the perfect amount of rock and country sounds to compliment the darker and more morbid themes of their 2020 LP Everybody’s Going To Hell (But You and Me). You can see these honky-tonkers supporting Nashville harmonizers The Watson Twins at The Earl June 22. — JG
