Elle and Shealeen Puckett

“2 AM,” the first new song from indie pop group Poema, is now up on their MySpace page. The single will be released through iTunes on February 23, and their Tooth & Nail debut, Sing It Now, hits stores March 23.

Poema consists of two sisters, Shealeen and Elle Puckett, ages 19 and 17. Their angelic voices sing infectious melodies over cutesy-but-elegant piano and acoustic guitar. The end result falls somewhere around Sixpence None the Richer, Eisley, and Taylor Swift. The band has a self-released album available for purchase here, which comes completely personalized by the sisters. These CDs will surely be worth a lot when these girls hit it big someday (maybe even a whole $10), so it’s highly recommended that you pick it up while you can. You can follow them on Twitter here.

Perhaps I’m biased, as I’ve been a big fan of this kind of cute chick pop since I first saw the video for Avril Lavigne’s single “Complicated” while channel surfing years ago, but I absolutely love the fun jams these young ladies have crafted. Maybe I’m a sucker for anything acoustic, but these playful songs are simply delightful. If you’re down for some good summer bonfire songs, mark March 23 on your calendars.
