Indigo is the long anticipated third album by this much acclaimed mother and daughter duo. It’s seven years since their last release Too Few Songs and although the duo have toured every year since, their various commitments have meant they haven’t been able to find time to record until now. Once again, they have laid their writing tools down and put together a list of remarkable songs from their favourite writers, some of whom are friends and others who are songwriting heroes. The track list includes songs by Karine Polwart (Waterlily), Richard Shindell (Wisteria), David Francey (The Flowers of Saskatchewan), Kim Richey (Angel’s Share) and Del Amitri’s Justin Currie (Always The Last to Know) as well as country classic She Thinks I Still Care and the traditional seafaring ballad Captain Glenn.
As you would expect now from this incredible pairing of voices, the harmonies are immaculate, the vocals inseparable and the effect, spine tingling. What is evident on Indigo – their third and most accomplished album to date – is the sheer delight Chris and Kellie take in singing and in the sound of each other’s voices, weaving in and around each other so you can hardly tell which is which.
