Australian indie-folk sister duo Charm of Finches make haunted tunes about love, grief and whispering trees.

Charm of Finches from Melbourne, Australia, make intricate, dreamy indie folk with many stringed things, awash with seamless blood harmonies traversing melancholy and wonder in equal measure. The sister duo, Mabel and Ivy Windred-Wornes, grew up busking old time tunes and singing on festival stages around Australia.

Their 2019 sophomore album Your Company won the 2020 Independent Music Awards’ Best Folk/Singer-Songwriter Album and was nominated for the 2020 Music Victoria Best Folk Album Award and 2020 Australian Music Prize.

Their music has featured on ABC TV, ABC RN, Triple J, Double J and championed by community radio stations around Australia. They recorded their third full length album Wonderful Oblivion at home while working remotely with acclaimed Canadian producer Daniel Ledwell. It will be released on October 22 through New York-based label AntiFragile Music.
