What do Charlotte, Jess and Sarah all have in common? They are three sisters from Sydney, Australia who make up the talented country/folk trio, The Fallen Robins. Known for their beautiful harmonies and genre bending sound, they released their debut EP ‘Stupid Little Girls’ last November. Their EP explored themes of loneliness, heartbreak and belonging through a unique and modern feminine lens.
The sisters are all within 4 years of age and were raised by their single mother who instilled confidence and hard work into them from a young age. “Our mum always told us that we are capable of anything we put our minds to. She encouraged us to dream big and although not musical herself, she has always supported us in writing and playing music.” Charlotte, Jess and Sarah reveal the purpose behind their tongue-in-cheek title, Stupid Little Girls, is to prove that women are just as capable as men. A truth that they learned from watching their mother raise three young girls. “Society can be unfair in its treatment of women and women’s issues, and one thing that stands out to us particularly is the negativity towards women who show strong emotions or opinions. We write songs to add our perspective to the conversation and to let our thoughts and feelings fly honestly and freely.”
The Fallen Robins admit their first and greatest musical crush is Taylor Swift. Her honest heart and clever songwriting hooked the sisters immediately. The authenticity of country is what initially drew The Fallen Robins to the genre. Dolly Parton is their other great love, “What we can say - she’s a legend. We’ve always admired her for blazing a trail for women and have been endlessly inspired by her confidence in herself and her songwriting. Her music has always been the benchmark for us. We push ourselves to write songs that touch people like hers do.” The songs written amongst the sisters are emotionally driven and are a window into their hearts. They showcase their strong feminine perspectives and show that they are not ashamed of their feelings or opinions.
The Fallen Robins would love to one day work with Australian producer, Chris Vellejo, the producer of many Passenger (UK singer/songwriter) albums. They recorded their EP at Everland Studios in Sydney with engineer Ben Worsey. Charlotte, Jess and Sarah have been taking it one day at a time during the pandemic and have written many new songs which they plan to release. They would love to begin experimenting with blending Bluegrass, Americana and Celtic sounds into their music. Keep an eye out for their new music video dropping January 28th!
The Fallen Robins are currently available exclusively on Bandcamp to stream, download and buy. They have plans to launch on Spotify soon.
