Their early years involved youth groups and choirs, but did little to develop the emotional maturity that their current catalog embodies. It was natural for the pair to venture to Australia after high school to study at Hillsong College, honing their craft in synchronization and being exposed to an entire palette of textures and layers they had to hop continents to experience. Their time there rivaled even their earliest impressions, and had the girls returning to the states quickly in a new iteration, a brazen, indie-pop/rock-infused act She The Monster.
It felt natural for the multi-instrumentalists to orchestrate a line-up of support to flesh out the ethereal brilliance of their vocals. After a stint on one of America's most popular TV shows, the girls chose the less-traveled, grittier, but more rewarding one of an independent act ruled by its own creative convictions.
You can’t recreate sibling synchronicity; it’s cosmic. It’s what makes Queen Hilma’s sound so authentic and frees the girls of the pressure of co-writes, trying to fabricate stories they can comfortably find within themselves and each other. The nucleus of their sisterly bond has, and always will, exist between bars and measures.
