NJ Arts wrote a very supportive article in promotion for the mtvU contest! Read the article here: http://www.njarts.net/pop-rock/nalani-sarina-compete-for-airplay-on-mtvu/
Nalani & Sarina combine for songs that are as forthright and upbeat as they are sonically organic and pristine, with echoes of their classic influences in every nook.
The sisters, on the other hand, out Prince Prince with their sexy, fresh, sonically-tight, new power soul throwdown.
To see and hear them now, it’s hard to believe they might not always be this cute and fresh, but listen to their music a bit closer and you’ll realize they won’t have to be.
Working with the Boltons, it seems easy to predict that they’ll be with us for a long time. So, prepare yourself to be constantly surprised by the musical wit and wisdom of these two giant stars.
In addition to being charismatic and confident singers and musicians, rotating among guitars, keyboards and ukuleles, their secret weapon is their songwriting.
Considering their musicianship, their sweet swaying rhythmic thrust, and their astonishing level of composition, we may be looking at the ‘next big thing.’
Their talent and beauty is obvious. But the enthusiasm they have for the music is infectious.
Not altogether pop, not quite the soul of yesteryear, and not quite the typical singer-songwriter archetype, it’s difficult to place the sisters in any one genre, but that’s what makes them so listenable: There’s a little something for everyone.
Nalani & Sarina, one of East Coast’s brightest new acts to emerge in the last few years.
Nalani & Sarina channel their sisterly energy into their music, and their chemistry oozes from the screen and into your ears.
