Heathers are an indie pop act formed in 2007 in Dublin, Ireland by twin sisters Ellie and Louise Macnamara. They began writing music together in 2007 and in February 2008 recorded their debut album Here, Not There while preparing for their Leaving Certificate. The album was recorded in The Hive Studios in Kilcoole by Eoin Whitfield in a joint release between Irish Label Hide Away Records and US label Plan-It-X Records. The duo is known for their unique blend of harmonies and abstract lyrics mixed with fast guitar and wailing vocals.
They have achieved significant radio airplay with the song Remember When. The song is featured in a Fáilte Ireland advertising campaign which has brought widespread coverage on television, cinema and radio. The band is also featured in the 2008 film "Roll Up Your Sleeves" directed by Dylan Haskins. Before a live appearance on RTÉ's The Late Late Show on 7 September 2012, host Ryan Tubridy introduced them by declaring that DJ and producer David Guetta was interested in working with them.
