I first discovered this band when they released a couple of EPs in America and I saw them on an American Christian music TV channel. Hailing from Tyler, Texas, the band consist of the three DuPree sisters Chauntelle, Sherri and Stacy with their brother Weston on drums and cousin Garron DuPree on bass. Soundwise these guys are purveyors of indie rock and the obvious comparison is Sixpence None The Richer with vocalists Stacy and Sherri coming on like a pair of Leigh Nashes! The band are signed to a mainstream label and winning fans all the time with their floating melodic, intriguing original sound. Songs like "Telescope Eyes" and "Marvellous Things" are the most obvious catchy single material but part of the band's charm is how they weave whimsical music with poetic lyrics. There might not be much happening if you're looking for directly spiritual commentary but some interesting allegory and the ability to create lovely sounds. Listening, I think the world needs more beauty and Eisley are doing their bit to make the world a more beautiful place!
