About Clementine Valentine
The music of twins Clementine and Valentine Nixon, also known as Purple Pilgrims, evokes a state between dreaming and wakefulness. It creates a sense of intimacy and at the same time a kind of ethereal elusiveness. In their work, the sisters blend dream pop, folk and cosmic jazz. They hide their voices under layers of reverb and express themselves through non-traditional instrumentation. Clementine and Valentine grew up in Hong Kong and in a remote corner of New Zealand. The contrasts of these places are reflected in their music. The overtimulating fragmented nature of the big city is reflected in their passion for layering sonic textures, while the remoteness of their New Zealand hometown is present in the melancholic calm of their songs.
