The KC Sisters deftly blend together a number of styles over the course of their three latest singles, Touch the Sky, Daddy Came Home and How the Irish Won the West.
Touch the Sky is an inspirational effort that is inspired by the work of Amy Grant and Joni Mitchell. The song is tender and will be appreciated by anyone that has had the joy of familial love. Daddy Came Home is another strong effort from The KC Sisters, as the track deals with a heavy topic – when someone a family loves changes as a result of a major life effect. The single soars on the back of multi-part harmonies and a lighter approach to the instrumentation. The aforementioned arrangement
provides proper highlighting at all the right places, ensuring that fans will be on the edges of their seats until the song’s final note.
How the Irish Won the West is an effort that requires that fans play the song a number of times before hearing everything that The KC Sisters have included into the mix. The intricate design (three fiddles as a focal point) touch upon traditional country and western along with bluegrass and folk genres. The rapid pace of the song showcases the technical skill of the performers, while the number of distinct movements heard during the track do more to tell the titular story than a vocalist could hope.
Along with the trio of violins weaved through the track, the presence of bass, percussion, and piano provide a full sound to the effort. When one considers that there are points during the single where there are five or six players, the ability of The KC Sisters to keep things cohesive is no mean feat.
