Charm of Finches from Melbourne, Australia, make intricate, dreamy indie folk with many stringed things, awash with seamless blood harmonies traversing melancholy and wonder in equal measure. The sister duo, Mabel and Ivy Windred-Wornes, grew up busking old time tunes and singing on festival stages around Australia.

Their 2019 sophomore album Your Company won the 2020 Independent Music Awards' Best Folk/Singer-Songwriter Album and was nominated for the 2020 Music Victoria Best Folk Album Award and 2020 Australian Music Prize.
