Even Artichokes Have Hearts just want to be your friends. The dreamy love children of Joan Baez and the Andrews Sisters, these two girls from New Haven believe in the healing power of the ukulele. They specialize in quirky folk-pop with a sense of humor and share a sweet tooth for chocolate and puns.
Chloe Sarbib (vocals, tambourine, and accordion) and Sarah DeLappe (vocals and ukulele) met at Yale University. They began playing music when they spent a summer together making movies in Prague and farming in the South of France. Needless to say, it was love at first sight. They’ve been making sweet pop music together ever since.
“If” is a whimsical pop gem — complete with ba-ba-ba’s — bringing to mind innocent childhood friendships. The backing track, “Summer,” is a breezy, dreamy song perfect for the season it’s named after.
