The Puppini Sisters are a musical trio specializing in 1940s-style close harmony vocal music. The group has been described as part of Retro’s futuristic vanguard and their sound described as swing-punk due to its being louder and more in your face than traditional swing music. The group has sought to be associated with a burlesque revival.

The members are italian Marcella Puppini and english Stephaie O’Brien and Kate Mullins. Although the three are not related, they chose their name in tribute to The Andrews Sisters. Puppini first studied fashion design at St. Marins School of Art, and later music at Trinity College of Music where she met Stephanie O’Brien and Kate Mullins. The Puppini Sisters are currently supported by a three-piece band featuring Blake Wilner on guitar, Pat Levett on drums/percussion and upright bassist Henrik Jensen. The group was founded by Marcella Puppini after she was inspired by the animated film Les Triplettes de Belleville (2003).
