The Villettes Live at Swan Dive

The_Villettes-6Go see the Villettes for two reasons: 1) the most beautiful harmonies you’ve ever heard live, and 2) a copious amounts of smile inducing, incredibly endearing giggling emanating from the stage. Having just added a drummer, the Villettes sounded more confident and complete than ever before. Built around the careful vocal harmonies of Courtney Howell and Katie Shepherd with support from Erin Howell, the songs have a high register, and the new drum parts serve to ground that aspect. Although their sound has been made more full, the songs came across no less gorgeous and delicate. The band is currently in the process of recording an EP with No Play Music, the label and promotion organization run by Jared Boulanger and Amarah Ulghani, core members of Austin mainstay The Sour Notes. Keep an ear out for these talented ladies and their new guy.
