They’re Australia’s most revered singing sisters, known for their rich vocal harmonies and stylistic breadth. And while still celebrating the release of their first ever best-of collection (and first ARIA #1 album) ‘Akilotoa (Anthology 1996-2004), Vika and Linda Bull have wasted no time in following up with an inspired album of gospel songs, titled Sunday (TheGospel According To Iso). From Sunday, today Vika & Linda release the first single, There Ain’t No Grave (Gonna Hold My Body Down), written by the late gospel singer Brother Claude Ely.
Sunday (The Gospel According To Iso) is a careful selection of songs that move them, including compositions going back to the 1930s but with lyrics that still feel as relevant as ever in 2020. Every song on the album was unearthed from their own collections, as well as recommendations from trusted musical friend Paul Kelly, with the exception of Shallow Grave, which was written especially for Vika & Linda by Kasey Chambers.
