"Family band" is a term that can evoke either wholesome '70s stereotypes or embittered alt-rock rivalries, but the London siblings in Kitty, Daisy & Lewis seem to come from a time farther removed. Their sound and style recall those carnivalesque clans of Dust Bowl days that sought their fortune from town to town.
Still, Kitty, Daisy and Lewis Durham drop any obvious association with their father, mastering engineer Graeme Durham, and their mother, former Raincoats drummer Ingrid Weiss, and let their music stand for itself. She's a little bit R&B, she's a little bit rockabilly, and he's a little bit old-time rock 'n' roll. Together, Kitty, Daisy and Lewis put a fresh young face on classic sounds.
