Today’s song is “Cardinal Marks” by Starnes&Shah. The duo is a pair of self-proclaimed “tragically uncool travelers.” Guitarist Dania Abu-Shaheen hails from Lebanon and keyboardist Zilpha Starnes was born and raised in Dallas, Texas. Originally formed in Astoria in 2005, Starnes & Shah hightailed it to Boston for a touring stint, then returned to settle in New York. The girls create an innovative sound with folksy rock n’ roll with poetic melodies drawing on influences like Fleetwood Mac and Indigo Girls. B seen. This song is off their third full-length album, Red Brick Tide.
