They have a unique, raw and country-western acoustic sound that is worth listening to. The lyrics of the song tells about two rebellious girls who ironically are the daughters of a preacher. The melody, the rhythm and the lyrics of the single were well-arranged that hit #1 in the charts last August.

Their voice quality reminds me of the "Everly Brothers" that I learned to appreciate at a very young age. Their songs were the first ones I learned how to play in my guitar and they too had their unique sound during their era, focusing mainly on ballads that are now considered a classic.

Hope you enjoy Love and Theft as much as I did - definitely a group worth listening to and watching out for :)
