The Command Sisters, I Can Do What I Want To Review
The Command Sisters are a sibling duet based in Toronto. Charlotte sings and plays keyboards, while Sarah sings background vocals and plays guitar. The Command Sisters have a sound that combines dance beats, pop hooks, and fiery guitar that is all package in popular culture and a superbly fashioned image. They perform across the United States and Canada, and have attracted partners such as Martin Guitars, PRS Guitars, Marshall Amps, MAC Cosmetics, and Boss/Roland, to name a few. Recently, the sisters joined forces with some of Canada’s most prominent artists to form the star-studded supergroup ArtistsCAN and performed a cover of Bill Withers’ “Lean On Me” to raise over 8 million dollars for the Canadian Red Cross and its COVID-19 relief efforts. The performance featured Justin Bieber, Avril Lavigne, Bryan Adams, Michael Bublé, and more. “I Can Do What I Want To,” via 21 Entertainment/Universal Music Canada/Republic Records, is the duets debut single produced by notable producer Tim Pagnotta (Walk The Moon, Weezer, Blink 182, Neon Trees, Elle King). The official video was personally shot, styled, and directed in the Command Sisters’ apartment during quarantine and filmed D.I.Y. on an iPhone.Positives: Solid melodies and a beautiful combination of fashion and music. Both Charlotte and Sarah are talented and bring fresh sounds to the table. Bottom Line: “I Can Do What I Want To” has a pop-rock beat that supports Charlotte’s enticing timbre. Pagnotta keeps the production full, and building and the sounds are all balanced, with one exception. Sarah’s guitar work is impressive, all be it a little buried in the mix. The interludes do feature her fretwork; she has the talent, and we would love to hear more of her playing. The sisters have great harmonies, and the chorus features Charlotte’s legato phrase that is undoubtedly an earworm. The perfect storm of style, talent, and skills all converge to spin up a twisting pop-rock tune that is a hip sound in the pop genre. The Command Sisters reveal, “This song sounds like a breakup song, but really it’s a love song to yourself and a ‘middle finger’ to anybody who tells you who to be, what you should believe in, or who you should become.” Yes, that is the rock attitude that drives the pop sensibilities to new highs in “I Can Do What I Want To.” That’s the short of it!
