“27 have transcended almost all convenient musical reference and now comfortably occupy a melodic stratosphere of their own”. Alternative Press
27 is a Boston based band comprised of sisters Maria Christopher (vocals/guitars) and Terri Christopher (drums), and Ayal Naor (baritone guitar/samplers). Maria and Terri met in a car on the way back from the hospital...their mom had just given birth to her sixth child, five of which are girls. Later, they met Ayal.
On 27’s recent full length release, “Brittle Divinity”, the band was fortunate to work with some extraordinary talent. Andy Hong (Tape Op) recorded a number of tracks at his studio in Cambridge, MA. The record was mixed with Matt Bayles at the Red Room in Seattle, WA, and was mastered by Emily Lazar and Joe LaPorta at The Lodge in New York, NY.
27’s melodic dark pop finds its own path, as if it’s sprouting through a cracked cement playground at night. Their music moves easily from lushly full to gently sparse, revolving around the alluring and captivating vocals. Some tracks ignite a tripped-out vibe, while other songs explore a more visceral rock approach with sweet, contagious hooks. 27 has been compared to artists such as Fiona Apple, Portishead, Aimee Mann, PJ Harvey, and Regina Spektor.
27’s extensive touring has created a fan base which crosses over many genres and continents, winning over indie, metal, punk, and pop audiences alike. 27 has toured throughout North America, Europe, Japan and Iceland supporting bands such as Minus The Bear, Isis, and Cave In, and has shared the stage with an eclectic group of bands, from Robert Plant, Low, and Rasputina, to Mastodon, Earth, Pelican, and Explosions In The Sky.
