Those rebel rousers from Chi City are at it again, this time with the release of their latest single following the incredible Wild Onion LP ‘In The Morning (In The Evening)’. Another one from Twin Peaks, the boys who have made the blending of modern day ideals with 60’s style and swagger into an effortless walk in the park, a walk that meanders past as our Track of the Day.
The quartet have become well verse in the dabbling guitar and doo-wop backing vocals of the golden age of pop; The Sixties and seem to add to this the other side of that era, the wrenching artistry which later formed groups such as The Velvet Underground and The Stooges. This is most abundantly clear when the screaming vocal of James comes across an otherwise playful sound.
Touching both ends of the spectrum with their retro feel but socially wry lyrics which denote a modern era hued with Golden flecks of romanticism. Something which is needed to brighten the grey that surrounds us all. It was also the first time the band moved on to analogue recording.
That’s something that has benefitted many artists trying to achieve an authentic sound, Nick Waterhouse and Allah-Las to name two. But whereas those artists tried to create the sun-shining sound of West Coast Soul Twin Peaks are very prominently placed as East Cost Garage rock and their sound is grittier, dirtier and realer for it.
The band said of the track: “This was our first experience recording directly to 2” tape, using an entirely analog setup at the wonderful Treehouse Records. We loved the vintage process and are psyched for everyone to hear it”
