Self-produced and self-released, every inch of Saint Sister's sophomore record, Where I Should End, belongs to them. Written on and off the tour cycle of their 2018 debut LP Shape of Silence, the album seeks to find meaning in a world that doesn’t stand still. And although the stories behind the songs stem from the unravelling and rebuilding of relationships while on the road, Where I Should End finds harpist/arranger Gemma Doherty and vocalist/songwriter Morgana MacIntyre in a place of great certainty, and performing at their peak. The duo, feeling boxed-in by the descriptor “atmosfolk” (a term coined for Saint Sister around their 2015 Madrid EP), challenged themselves to create a distinctive shift in their sound with their new album. On Where I Should End, Doherty and MacIntyre built upon their already evocative, entwining vocals and rich, atmospheric melodies to craft varied and resonant soundscapes that radiate with a breathtaking new warmth.

In the early days of the band, the duo decided that there would be no “front woman” in Saint Sister, so everything onstage was represented as such: MacIntyre behind a keyboard and Doherty behind the harp. Over the past six years, however, they’ve grown more comfortable with defining their roles, and with Where I Should End they’ve chosen to be front and center in everything from the music, to the studio, to their videos, to the artwork—which features the pair clad in distinctive suits created by rising Irish designer Aideen Gaynor, inspired by the work of Susan and Elizabeth Yeats (pioneers of the Irish Arts and Crafts movement).
