Spotlight on Urbanscapes: The Impatient Sisters


Describe The Impatient Sisters’ sound:

We’re hopeless romantics singing about love lost, love found, wanting to be in love and being hopeful. Our sound is like biting into a marshmallow and finding peanuts inside, with a spicy aftertaste.

What are your thoughts on playing at Urbanscapes Festival and what are you most looking forward to?

This year has been quite amazing and getting invited to perform at Urbanscapes is pretty surreal. We’re very honoured to be on the list alongside big acts such as Sigur Ros and Yuna. We attended Urbanscapes last year, before we were on The Wknd Sessions, and we talked about wanting to perform at Urbanscapes, and now we’re here! We’re definitely looking forward to the performances and of course the food and the bazaar! We just can’t wait to spend the weekend out in the sun with friends. We think it’s awesome that Urbanscapes is a 2-day festival this year!

What can festival-goers expect from The Impatient Sisters’ set at Urbanscapes?

Expect a grand time! We definitely want our set to be memorable, as we’ve always wanted to perform at Urbanscapes.  Our set is definitely going to be different from our previous performances. Thought we’d make it special for Urbanscapes. We can’t reveal too much though but it’s going to be fun for sure! We’re very excited! We’re going to be accompanied by a few handsome boys on stage too and we know girls have been crushing on our cellist! 

If The Impatient Sisters could collaborate with one other act that is also performing at Urbanscapes, who would you pick and what do you think the collaboration would sound like?

Oh man, this is a hard question! We have such awesome acts this year! Well, besides Sigur Ros (who wouldn’t want to collaborate with them? Sigur Ros x The Impatient Sisters would probably sound like you’ve just swallowed light and you’re being devoured inside out by said light while dancing awkwardly in a field of flowers), the other act we’d like to collaborate with would be Pastel Lite and it’ll sound like an explosion of magical electronics that will bring forth robotronic flowers that will sway in ¾ time.
