Twin River #2 - Settle Down


Two out of two for Twin River it is. After the brilliant "Antony" comes "Settle Down", similarly taken from the bands forthcoming second LP Passing Shade and one that soon follows suit as a slice of beautifully more-ish pop.

"Settle Down" combines shimmery/surfy guitar-led melodies with propulsive drums rhythms amongst dreamy, hazily romantic vocals on a track tinged with the effervescent optimism of youth, ‘we didn’t want to settle down’ repeats the tracks chorus, presumably to be sung with a can of lager in one hand and your latest flame in the other. It’ll get you in the end kiddo’s…

Passing Shade follows on June 17th and can be pre-ordered digitally via Bandcamp.

Twin River - Antony


Judging by the brilliance of “Antony” I should have heard of Vancouver's Twin River sooner. The expressive, pulsing melody instantly makes me think of War on Drugs brilliant “Red Eyes”, a rich track which sounds like a vast, thrilling journey filled with beautiful hooks and chord changes, the highway-ready beat and dreamy vocals will soon have you lost deep within.

“Antony” is released as a 7” on March 4th ahead of a second LP later this year. The band’s debut LP Should The Light Go Out was released last year and has immediately gone on the weekend listening pile.
