Reviews MUSICIAN magazine (UK) Sisters Heather and Megan Tilston deliver acoustic honey to great effect. Light-hearted, unpretentious and enchanting. 11 songs for a sunny Sunday afternoon. It'll make your day. CAMBRIDGE and Beyond (UK), Powered by Fatea Rating: **** CURL is the performing name for singer-songwriter sisters Heather and Megan Tilston. 'Connection' is the debut cut recorded on their own label. It's got an acoustic pop feel with lots of jazz infusion giving an album that is relaxed and laid back, but oozes with class and confidence. Mellow is an oft used word to describe the easy vibe that permeates throughout this type of record. It is an appropriate word for 'Connection', but it is very much only part of the story. Whilst Curl have produced a sound that is easy going, it is also one that has plenty of strength. You get the distinct feeling that this was thought about from the first note to the last. The songs are as strong and delicate as a spider's web. They float like gossamer on the wind, creating a solid connection where they touch down. The harmonies that dominate the album are just so rich. There's a very intimate feel to both song and sound, it's an album that it's very easy to internalise. It's capable of both setting and reflecting your mood. To do that it must be well written, it is. It must be able to appeal to different parts of you, it does. It also refeshes and tantalises.
