There have been some fairly fantastic musical pairings throughout the history of music; Simon & Garfunkel, Lennon & McCartney, Captain & Tennille, the list goes on. However, among the most memorable partnerships have resulted from the matching of vocalists of the different male singer in such a manner that can beautifully complement one another and retain some stunning harmonies that may go unnoticed.
There’s been a slew of bands who have taken advantage of the male-female dynamic, resulting in some fantastic songs. Of course, Australia isn’t immune to this, since many of these organisations originate in our beautiful nation. The Seekers, Angus & Julia Stone, as well as San Cisco, are all well-known Australian examples.
As a result, we’ve decided to revisit several of the finest brands which have a healthy balance of female and male vocals.
San Cisco from Fremantle burst onto the Australian music scene in 2011 with their catchy tune ‘Awkward.’ Following their success in captivating the hearts and minds of music listeners across the country, the trio maintained its public profile by releasing its self-titled debut album in 2012 as well as Gracetown, their follow-up, in 2015.
San Cisco, which features Scarlett Stevens as well as Jordi Davieson on vocals, has made a reputation for itself not just in Australia, but it also globally, after their viral rendition of Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky.”
With their third album, The Water, on the way, the Western Australian quintet is poised to take over the airwaves once more, doing just what we love to watch them do.
Sonic Youth, without a doubt one of the most alternative rock bands of all time, was founded in 1981 as well as went on to be one of the most influential and very well acts of the previous several decades during the course of their 30-year existence. The ensemble stretched the bounds of what was expected of such a rock band by having two vocalists, with such a fondness for playing with weird time signatures, various guitar tunings, and also very experimental rhythmic patterns.
