Overcoats

Overcoats is a duo, but JJ Mitchell and Hana Elion's voices are so perfectly in sync that when you hear them sing together, you'd almost think it was one single voice. Their supernatural-sounding harmonies and minimalist songwriting got a lot of praise when Mitchell and Elion dropped their debut album, YOUNG, back in 2017. The duo finally returns with a new record called The Fight, out next month.

In this session, JJ and Hana explain the way their sound has changed as the world has changed since their debut. They also describe their connection as both singers and friends, and share songs from their forthcoming album. We begin the session with a track inspired by a tarot card. Hear "The Fool" recorded live for World Cafe in the player above.

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for.  If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
