Sister duo Charm of Finches (aka Mabel and Ivy Windred-Wornes) from Melbourne, Australia, make haunted tunes about love, grief and whispering trees; indie folk with many stringed things, awash with seamless blood harmonies traversing melancholy and wonder in equal measure.
Their 2021 third album WONDERFUL OBLIVION, co-produced with Canadian producer Daniel Ledwell, was released through NYC label AntiFragile Music.
2020 Global Music Match participants, COF toured Woodfordia's Festival of Small Halls Autumn and then across the UK/Europe in the northern summer of 2022 playing headline shows and festivals.
Winners of the 2021 Music Victoria Best Folk Act and 2021 Australian Folk Music Awards Youth Act of the Year and long-listed for the 2020 & 2021 Australian Music Prize, Charm of Finches' international accolades include 2020 Independent Music Awards Best Folk/Singer-Songwriter Album and 2021 International Song Competition for their music video “Treading Water”.
“Wonderful Oblivion is a moving work, dressing up the shared experiences of the everyday with music that tugs at the heart and stirs the imagination.” ⭐⭐⭐⭐ The Australian
