In their Words: "'Don't Just Sit There' was written when we were living in an old Victorian house in Brooklyn's Ditmas Park. We found the place on Craigslist, not knowing it was a recording studio and music school for 60 years prior. There were so many treasures there that had been left behind, like a Steinway Grand Piano that laid in the living room, almost as if it had been waiting for us. Many of our songs were written on that piano, including this one.
Holly and I have had a relationship filled with coincidences. We call each other singing sisters because there's a kinship unlike any we've ever experienced. Our lives are uniquely in sync, and much of it happening while under the roof of the Bromley house.
When we were ready to record, our bandmates Danny and Pete felt it was imperative that the recording reflect that synergy. None of us were concerned with trying to sound like 'a band.' We just wanted to create a unique environment for each song to sit in. This song -- which is almost more like a chant -- is about two experiences, told from the same perspective, at the same time, with the same sentiment. Two voices as one." -- Singer Jess Wolfe
