After Leon Bridges came along and showed us in 2015 that pitch perfect period pieces channeling soul music’s glorious history could still resonate loudly in the age of smartphones and Spotify the world was stunned. The Womack Sisters are three girls (nieces of Bobby Womack, granddaughters to Sam Cooke and daughters to Linda and Cecil Womack - it’s in their blood!) whose debut single ‘Darling’ positively revitalises a weary soul. All the hallmarks of a classic sound are there: motown harmonies, killer hooks, perfect pop architecture… and an immense feeling of satisfaction for any listener with a lust for melody.
