Goleta grown duo Carly and Bethany, together with their ukulele and various percussive instruments, are The Brambles; A sweet and thorny pair, inspired by Americana Folk, and the tunes you tap your feet to. A Friendship formed years before their musical kinship began in the early days of 2014. Brought together by their mutual admiration of euphoric acoustics in various environments, they began their habit of yelling harmoniously. Sandwiches, cats, and David Bowie are just a few of a plethora of interests these two share. Some call them sisters, some call them lovers, relationship aside- though confusing, and at times questionable, this duo thrives with instruments in hand , and a song to be sung.
