Inventing Eve are Jenifer and Sarah Ray, London-born twins now living and working in New York. Quoting their influences as Queen, Otis Redding and Van Morrison, they are not at all easy to pigeon hole. Their pop sound, tinged with folk and rock, has some beautifully complex melodies and they arrange the two voices well to produce some captivating vocal lines. The songs tend to be written from personal experience and can often show the sisters' sense of humour - especially the catchy pop number "Caterpillar Eyebrows". The girls cover a lot of ground, from looking at filling a God-shaped hole in people's lives in the opening track "Something Bigger" through to just kicking back and enjoying the weekend in "Forget Monday". All in all a well rounded album that will spend a lot of time in the car CD player through the summer.
