Here the sisters sing a song that alludes to a pledge of fealty with the traditional stance of the oath-taker – but it is also a rather more romantic gesture, in both a positive and a negative sense. Stick with us, we’ll do a drawing if it’s needed. The tale begins with a recap of love that went wrong: “The one who came before you was unkind / … / so I made him hand over, hand over my heart.” Then new love comes along, the real thing this time, but barriers are hard to pull down – but when they are, what is left but to pledge eternal love? And to pledge it with the most wonderful harmony vocals.
‘Hand Over My Heart’ is the third single from the Secret Sisters’ new album ‘Saturn Return‘ . And the Secret Sisters will be playing at the upcoming American Fest in Hackney, specifically at Empire Bar on Wednesday 29th January at 8pm.
