Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this song is an innocent enough tune about drifting apart in a relationship and getting your heart broken. Some tweens may not be able to relate to being in a long-term relationship, but they'll certainly empathize with the heartbroken aspect. Radio Disney has promoted this sister act.

What's the story?

This sibling pop duo looks every bit the part of a \"California girl,\" but don't let their Southern Cali blonde tresses fool you. Without really any formal musical training, these two sisters have a peppy, melodious harmony that's infectious.

Is it any good?


Savvy and Mandy's fresh-faced lovability seems to fade in to the background as they sing catchy guitar pop with such grown up lyrics like "Are we doing the right thing/we'll just have to wait and see/It's been forever/we been together/it just wasn't meant to be." It's hard to imagine some of the words coming out of the mouths of a 12 and 14 year old without much "heartbreak" experience, but, if you can get past that -- as most tweens and teens probably will -- you'll enjoy their silky singing on a bright first single that is bound to make the heavy rotation list on Radio Disney.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about family singing groups. What is it about bands like Jonas Brothers or The Naked Brothers Band that make them successful? Do they have a better chance at success than a group of strangers coming together?
