Blanche Du Bois
Named after the lost, tragic star of Tennessee Williams' classic play A Streetcar Named Desire, luckily Blanche DuBois the band share none of her qualities (the character did, after all, end up in a mental hospital).
In this case, Blanche DuBois are Perth sisters Nadija and Adriana Begovich who delight in airy, enticing acoustic folk-pop (think Sarah McLachlan, Jewel et al), awash with sweet harmonies and gentle melodies. To date, the DIY duo have released two EPs and two albums with their tunes turning up on Home and Away, Neighbours, All Saints and Ugly Betty.
After four years between albums, the lasses will release their third on January 20, 2012. First single The War In Me is a delightful introduction.
