What we're listening to - Twin Sister

A day filled with meetings is a day filled with sadness. So, thank all that's good for Twin Sister, a band of 20-something shoegazers on a mission to save meeting-addled brains from certain implosion.

Their sound? Somewhere on the brink of Beach House with a glimmer of Avi Buffalo, a flash of My Bloody Valentine and just a taste of Still Corners (who, incidentally, Twin Sister are supporting in London on November 25). For the uninitiated, that's a complex mix of ephemeral vocals, broad musical landscapes which drift into tight melodic patterns (before swiftly drifting back out again), some pretty creepy lyrics - "I want to kill a man. Maybe eat him." - and the occasional tinkle of an electronic riff.

Most Popular

Alongside all the requisite shoe-gazing ingredients, elements of jammy soul funk can be found on "All Around and Away We Go" while "Nectarine" is country-fied nouveau-folk at its very best. Our favourite track has to be "Lady Day Dream", which manages to achieve all of the above with a maturity we'd expect from a band advanced in its collective years.
