As the storm of self-possession crashes in and recedes again, we take solace in the shelter of a perfect fifth.

Dedicated to the cause of female empowerment, this duet from Canada uses folk music as their medium for exploring issues around gender equality. With an enchanting monastic harmony, segueing into a reed-heavy reinvention of the Cranberries, and back again, the energy level is a fitting swoon from the brief heavy-hand of a full drum set.

It's an opportunity for reflection, for a stroll around the figurative garden of one's own turbulent abbey. As the storm of self-possession crashes in and recedes again, we take solace in the shelter of a perfect fifth. Let the accordion ring out: I can see shadows moving across the floor.
