Pooka

Real Name:
Sharon Lewis and Natasha Jones
Profile:
Pooka is the former songwriting duo of UK guitarists/vocalists Sharon Lewis and Natasha Jones formed in 1992. Taking their name from a mythical Irish goblin that first appears friendly but has the habit of turning nasty, the duo likewise had a way of keeping their audience spellbound with sweet melodies, lush arrangements and alluring lyrics only to turn with spine-tingling vengeance toward twisted guitar chords and menacing vocal arrangements.
Over the years, Pooka's music defied categorization, masterfully spanning genres from avant-folk/pop/rock to classical and electronica, thereby earning them a cultish, devoted following and underground reputation.

Pooka were a really creative pair who had lovely and quite unique harmony vocals, someone should do a box set and collect everything together along with their collabs with Ultamarine and Orbital. The solo stuff they both went on to do after Pooka split has some gems in as well.
