Harlequin Gold
Baby Blue EP
Independent

Sisters Elle and Avery O’Brien serve up a crisp, clear and polished introduction to their immaculate indie-folk sound.

Brought together by a family tragedy after years spent apart, the two have have been working with Vancouver’s Justice McLellan (Blue J, Mesa Luna) to bring their driving musical creations to life. Built on a foundation of singles with pop and rock sensibilities, the four tracks on Baby Blue are near-perfect, each one more enticing than the last until the EP climaxes all-too-quickly with the stunning “Want You More.”

Baby Blue leaves the future wide open for these Kelowna transplants to soar internationally. Harlequin Gold performs Sept. 14 at the Vogue Theatre during Westward Festival.
