The Weight of the Globe

Written by a pair of teenaged sisters over the course of their summer vacation and recorded with a band in just a few days, The Weight of the Globe is a musical snapshot of Lily & Madeleine Jurkiewicz at a pivotal moment in their lives. Madeleine’s off to college, Lily’s sure to follow soon after, and both sisters find themselves pulled in two directions—between a love for the hometown they’ll be leaving behind and their burgeoning wanderlust.

When the sisters began writing together just over a year ago, nobody expected their first song, “In the Middle,” to rack up a quarter of a million YouTube views. The Internet is obsessed with what’s new and what’s next and so it would have to seem a little incongruous for social networks and content aggregators to embrace gimmick-free, black-and-white footage of an unplugged duo crooning a bittersweet and understated melody.

But there’s something inherently incongruous about the music of Lily & Madeleine, a pair of slight teenagers with singing voices this assured and worldly. The Weight of the Globe sounds like something out of another age, not the work of a pair of sisters born less than two decades ago and raised in Indianapolis, the Midwest of the Midwest. No wonder that, on the strength of their viral video performances, the sisters managed to sell out the first two live shows of their career and quickly recruit the help of Asthmatic Kitty Records to release the EP.

The recording project that became the Weight EP started with producer Paul Mahern (John Mellencamp, The Fray), who had fallen in love with the duo’s earlier YouTube videos, and immediately got in touch to invite the sisters into the studio. The sisters started writing their first original tunes over summer vacation and Paul introduced them to bassist and songwriting partner Kenny Childers (Gentleman Caller) who helped them to refine the material.
