Melbourne duo Deer Prudence, comprised of Mariah McCarthy and Georgia Delves, play charming, quintessential folk music with fluttering harmonies and sweet Celtic-style violins, a demure and soothing solace in Melbourne’s hectic music scene. The pair, having known one another since early high school days in regional Victoria (Heathcote and Bendigo, to be exact), have performed across the stages of Brunswick Music Festival and Queensland’s Wintermoon Festival, and most recently received Majors Creek Festival’s Ros Hales Award for Young Women in Music. To top it off, they’re getting ready to release their new single ‘Sam’s Lament‘ with a launch show to match at Some Velvet Morning on November 19, supported by the hollering folk sound of Forever Son. To celebrate the upcoming launch show, Deer Prudence handed over their top ten favourite matches made in heaven, musical or otherwise.
