This soulful-folk duo, Hestina, "is guided by an intrinsic, instinctual, guttural groan- a yearning far beyond themselves" says Kimberly. Having just re-released their debut Album, Blossom Talk, with Autumn Tone Records in mid-April they are eager to share this record. Blossom Talk is "a metamorphosis and compilation of songs that time capsule's our transition into becoming a band" -Hestina.
"These girls sing with attention-grabbing smoky blues voices. Classically sensual and burlesque. Their stripped-down, ukulele-dominated accompaniment invokes a misty post-rock dream-scape that offers an almost ironic contrast to the primal humanity of the vocals. Add to that, intensely personal lyrics and you get a band that is very hard to turn away from."-- Michael Kunz (New Orleans Music Critic)
