They were born into one of the biggest chocolate loving families in the continent.
John Cadbury, founder of the Birmingham-based confectionary empire, is the first in a long line of names the eclectic three-piece Cadbury Sisters can count as their ancestors.
But now Jessica (vocals and percussion) Mary (vocals and electric guitar) and Lucy (vocals and acoustic guitar) are tasting sweet success all of their own, thanks to the rise and rise of their band.
Based in Bristol, the trio, aged between 28 and 23, have been gaining rave reviews for their captivating lyrics and musical prowess.
Complete with vocals that can at once be delicate yet powerful, their music brings to mind long summer and crisp autumn days which can at one moment be bright then melancholic the other.
It is this broadness that makes it nigh on impossible to pigeon hole them into one genre – at different times their sound encompasses alt-pop, rock, folk and much more.
Their sound is something best decided by audiences at their live shows, one of which will take place at Halifax’s The Doghouse on Thursday, June 18.
Lucy, 23, said: “We’re really excited because it will be the furthest north that we have ever gigged.
“We’ve been working hard on our latest EP called Sarah so can’t wait to let people hear it live.”
It is the latest for the sisters, who formed as a band in 2009.
“We did some silly recordings and went to some acoustic nights,” said Lucy.
“We didn’t have a name until one compere asked what we were called before we went on stage – he chose the name and it just stuck.
“We began to experiment with our sound and drew people to us so now we’re doing the band while holding down day jobs as carers.
“People have been really supportive of us, which is a great response to get.”
During their time together, they have had to learn how to try juggle personal relationships with working ones.
“We’ve had to face up to a lot of demons. We’ve had our share of issues but its brought us 10 times closer together than before we were in the band.
“I wouldn’t say we’ve found a perfect solution but we make it work by just coping with whatever happens and don’t try to separate the two types of relationships we have.”
She commented on the positive prevalence of female-fronted groups and musicians making waves in the music scene at the moment.
“I think a lot more experimental sounds are coming out at the moment.
“We really like Bat For Lashes’ work and it’s spurred us on to experiment more and not be scared to be different.”
Lucy said that the band has lots of intentions for their future.
“We’d like to do an album but don’t have any exact plans about when we would like to do that.
“At the moment we are just happy rolling with the movement and taking each day as it comes – I think that makes it all the more exciting.”
