The beautiful spaced-out-pop made by this female-fronted band of New York-based newbies had us swooning from the very first listen. We've been madly hooked on them ever since, and would go so far as to say they are not just one of the most exciting bands to come out of New York, but are defeating anything else that our quivering ears have heard for some time. Immediate echoes of Galaxie 500, Beach House, Fleetwood Mac, Bjork and even disco-pop queens like Donna Summer. There appears to be a nice blissed-out but intricate pop sound that emanating from the New York streets at the moment - and Twin sister are perhaps the most explorative and psychedelic of the bunch, and what's certainly clear here is a striving for individuality and classic pop sounds with a healthy dose of experimentalism. The band has lately been wooing fans and critics alike, with glowing (multiple!) writeups in Pitchfork, Stereogum, Brooklyn Vegan, Fader, and dozens more, all on the strength of a debut given away digitally free on their website (www.twinsistermusic.com). Now signed to Domino Records in the UK, this will be the band's much anticipated debut UK show.
‘I was blown away by how good they are live…I haven’t come away from a show that excited about a new band in some time. Totally impressed.’ (Brooklyn Vegan)
‘With spacey elements of lo-fi and laid back female vocals, there’s a lot to like.’ (I Guess I’m Floating)
Lifting the iconic opening drum-cracks from the Ronettes' "Be My Baby", the wispy London dream-poppers layer the ghostly goth-sprite vocals, the organ purrs, the delicate guitar flutters-softly on top of the classic thump-thumpthump-smack, which dictates much of the feel of their musical output - a fresh and very British take on the current resurgence of 1960s girl group influenced indie pop bands such as Pains of Being Pure at Heart or Best Coast. There are shades of C86 throughout, but the end result is akin to talking a blustery walk around a deserted fairground – maudlin, bittersweet but utterly unforgettable.
"Mixing 60s production with dream-pop shimmer, are these wafty British etherealists heralding a new golden age of indie?... If you were to assemble a bunch of tracks to give indie a good name, like a latterday C81 or C86, now would be the time to do it. And right at the start of that compilation – let's call it i2010 – should be Still Corners."Guardian Music
Most bands who get whipped up in a wave of hype and media attention whilst still knee deep in education would find it mighty hard to concentrate during a 9am lecture and will have dropped out within a week. Kotki Dwa however turned their back on such a stereotype nigh on three years ago, after they released what was could only be described as a youthful invigorating rabble of experimental pop brilliance all over their debut LP, winning Tate Modern prizes for music inspired by art and playing homage to their Polish roots by playing a Polish Social Club in London to launch said record before disappearing off into the chalkboards into their respective different cities. That is until now. A band who Rockfeedback has always loved, this sees a re-introduction appearance for the band as they find themselves now living together with an exciting new collection of music ready to show to the world.
