Playing on their inseparable status, the video sees the duo imitate various famous double-acts from Laurel and Hardy to Wayne and Garth, while accompanied by the beautiful tones and glistening harmonies of the track.
“We had a lot of fun making the video for Awakening,” say the duo. “A weekend spent dressing up as duos, driving around Exeter and laughing far too much!”
The track is taken from their new album, This Time, which was released last month. The follow-up to their 2017 album, For All Our Sins, which was released to widespread praise – This Time continues to showcase an evident gift for crafting unique, vivid and enduring melodies over 15 heartfelt tracks.
“’This Time’ is a collection of moments, emotions, challenges and stories,” say the duo. “We've collected lyrics, melodies and ideas from the past couple of years for this project. We created this album last winter in an isolated barn in Wales with only guitars, a piano, wine and the dogs for company. The themes of time, love, loss, perseverance, hope and clarity are intertwined in these songs.”
Throughout the album, Sound Of The Sirens – duo Abbe Martin and Hannah Wood – blend intoxicating vocal harmonies with beautifully crafted instrumentals to create a seamless collection of captivating tracks.
