Incredible to see them on this!

The NPR Tiny Desk Concert series is world renowned for having the BEST live music from around the world play on its channel.

In the past, superstars like Adele, Mac Miller, T-Pain have performed. Irish artists have been no strangers either with Hozier's performance racking up over 6million views 5 years ago. The Cranberries also matched those numbers 6 years ago when they performed, and only recently, rising star Dermot Kennedy took to the famous series to get his name out there!

NPR Tiny Desk concerts are like a badge of approval from the music community, as it's understood that only artists who can really perform well live appear. Check our Anderson Paak's session on the channel to get a sense of what we mean!

But step aside Paak, and enter Saint Sister! Their recent performance has just been uploaded to their YouTube channel for the world to see!

Sit back, stick this on the TV or whack on some good headphones ... and enjoy!

The duo hail from Northern Ireland and both met while studying in Trinity College - since then, they've toured extensively through Europe and the US.

Saint Sister, formed 2014, is the creation of Morgan MacIntyre & Gemma Doherty. Mixing celtic harp, 60s folk and electronic pop they create 'atmosfolk'.

We posted an incredible cover of The Cranberries dreams last year, and the video has hit 1million views - not bad eh!? You can check it out below:

We've had them in on session before, you can hear that session here!
