Saint Sister's Gemma Doherty looks ahead to SXSW

Having unveiled their debut EP just this year, there's been many a head turned by Saint Sister, a duo aiming to weave their magic overseas as well as at home in the year ahead

Relative newcomers first came across our radar when they did their damnedest to blow San Fermin off the Whelan's stage in March, a trick they very nearly repeated when supporting Will Butler at the same venue. Add in the release of their first EP, Madrid, and it's been a pretty productive 12 months.

With that in mind, it says something that Gemma Doherty's eyes are set firmly ahead, though when you've just been added to the bill for SXSW, the annual Texas showcase, its altogether understandable. At the Hot Press Christmas Summit, Gemma also looks back at some of 2015's highlights, and reveals how she'll be spending December 25.
