Kilmarnock alt-rock trio Twin Heart have announced their debut EP, Progress: Decline, to be released by Rip It Up Records on 1st July.
If you’ve been lucky enough to have seen Twin Heart live, you’ll know that they’re already a force to be reckoned with. From the first chord the trio’s energy is nothing less than electric. The band leap and launch themselves across the stage, perfectly personifying the big, sweeping melodies and bristling, punky angst of their music. This exuberance only becomes more pronounced as Twin Heart take the transfixed crowd on a tour of the diverse musical elements at their disposal. There’s a definite Scottish rock influence in their bigger grooves, and the juxtaposition of frontwoman Dawn Baxter’s singing and the backing growls of bassist Owen Burt and drummer Murray Baxter show a mastery of both smooth and harsh textures.
A Badge Of Friendship have an exclusive stream of one of the tracks from the new disk, ‘Ghosts’. One listen to this and you’ll understand why, in the increasingly crowded Scottish rock scene, Twin Heart are such an essential act…
Progress: Decline will be released 1st July.
Twin Heart support Fort Hope at Glasgow’s King Tut’s tonight.
