The original "casket girls," so-called for the coffin-shaped boxes that held their belongings, were recruited from France and sent to the New World to become wives to the settlers of the Louisiana colonies in the 18th century. Their mysterious backgrounds and perceived mysticism have made for centuries of lore. Nearly as enigmatic as their namesakes are Savannah, Georgia's Casket Girls—made up of the Greene sisters, Phaedra and Elsa, along with Ryan Graveface (Black Moth Super Rainbow, Dreamend). The trio crafts off-kilter but irresistible dark pop on their recently released second album, True Love Kills the Fairy Tale. Fueled by a love for '60s girl groups, Graveface convinced the initially reluctant sisters to help him fulfill that vision, and hints of the influence can be found among the glorious bombast of cuts like "Secular Love" and "Same Side." The Casket Girls come to town fresh off an accident that totaled their tour van earlier this month, making your wise decision to buy a ticket almost as important for their future as it is for yours.
