When international attention came to the sibling duo Charlie Belle in 2014, Jendayi and Gyasi Bonds were literally just kids. Sixteen and fourteen-years-old at the time, they were both already veterans of the Austin music scene (Austin City Limits, SXSW, Moody Theater) when their debut EP “Get To Know” blew up. Press came from NPR, Nylon, MTV, Vice, WIRED and others, and Jendayi and Gyasi appeared together on the SXSW edition of The Austin Chronicle. Jendayi and Gyasi are now 25 and 23 years old respectively, currently based in Brooklyn, NY. They were always plotting a return, and now they are back with a vengeance – the siblings are kicking into high gear with a stream of new singles and gigs all over, from their hometown of Austin to their new home in New York City. Those blown away by the catchiness and thoughtfulness of Charlie Belle’s debut can look forward to new music by young adults who have now been doing this for half their lives, and the music speaks for itself. What was already great is even better: pop music that’s keenly aware of the moment in a way that only Jendayi and Gyasi can speak to. There’s truly something extra special that only comes when siblings create pop songs like only siblings can.
