The Advanced LIGO and Advanced Virgo detectors are producing several tens of (and growing) highly significant and credible gravitational wave candidates. The exploration of double compact object population statistics is integral to constraining the relative importance of different formation channels and reducing the large uncertainties that characterise key stages of isolated binary evolution. I discuss how binary evolution physics may be imprinted in low-frequency gravitational waves of inspiralling double neutron stars (DNSs). In particular, I talk about some of the recent predictions of detection rates and properties of DNSs expected to be observed by future spaceborne interferometer LISA .
