There's something downright magical about Us The Duo.
Their story could be the perfect fodder for an uplifting romantic comedy a la You've Got Mail, but it's their songs that make them so utterly engaging, entrancing, and endearing. You've got to start paying attention to them now, because they're bound for superstardom this year!
Their new album No Matter Where You Are, recently re-released via Republic Records [iTunes link], captivates with its simplicity. Only one song stretches past the four-minute mark, and that's the poetically gorgeous "Heartbreak". However, that's because Us The Duo can capture attention with nimble lyricism and the utterly irresistible harmonies of Michael and Carissa Rae Alvarado within two-to-three unforgettable minutes. The first single and title track remains the perfect case-in-point. The hook stands out as downright cinematic as it is catchy, and it's tightly architected like any classic pop tune. At the same time, album closer "'Til the Morning Comes". It shows the power of these voices as they cascade into the sunlight for one final wonderful send-off.
Us The Duo wield the kind of real magic that timeless pairs are made of. Fall under the spell now.
