"We the Animals’ frontwoman Kayla Brown and Bashful Youngens’ co-frontperson Carrie Chandler have teamed up to form a new duo: Dearie. If you are familiar with their respective projects, then you can likely anticipate what Dearie may sound like, melding the haunting, indie sensibilities of We the Animals with the harmony-rich, Americana sounds of Bashful Youngens. Well, that is, in fact, exactly what it sounds like, and it’s a fantastic combination. This is a band to watch." - Smile Politely 2018
