PAS­CAL PI­NON Two some­ness Morr Mu­sic

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - MUSIC REVIEWS - JIM CAR­ROLL Down­load: Good and Bad Things, Evgeny Kissin’

The orig­i­nal Pasqual Pi­non was a Texas cir­cus per­former who traded as the Two Headed Mex­i­can be­cause he ap­peared to have two heads. To­day’s Pasqual Pi­non are teenage Ice­landic sis­ters Jófríður and Ásthildur Ákadót­tir, who will snare you in their songs’ del­i­cate webs of in­ti­macy and sim­plic­ity. On the twins’ sec­ond al­bum, there are cer­tainly times when they ap­pear to be think­ing as one as they em­bue their songs and crunchy elec­tronic tex­tures with a soft beauty and be­guil­ing ten­der­ness. Their sweet, gen­tle voices go well with the bat­tery of ethe­real har­monies and bare at­mo­spher­ics, which turn songs such as Good and Bad Things, the ex­pan­sive Evgeny Kissin’ and Su­mar­mal emo­tional pow­er­houses. That the Ákadót­tirs are ca­pa­ble of pro­duc­ing mu­sic as mag­netic as this bodes well for their fu­ture. pas­
