TWEN

SHARES DEBUT SINGLE,

ANNOUNCES SUPPORT TOUR WITH WHITE REAPER

+ SIGNS TO FRENCHKISS RECORDS

Listen to “Waste” via Stereogum now!

 

Nashville by-way-of Boston DIY punk scene band Twen release their massive debut single today, alongside the announcements of signing to Frenchkiss and a support tour with White Reaper. The hard-hitting “Waste” – which showcases the band’s captivating balance between lightness and darkness, where catchy punk and dream pop seamlessly blends with heavy psych-rock undertones – is about fighting the relentless voices of self-doubt that play on loop in your head. Those doubts fall away as lead vocalist Jane Fitzsimmons shouts into the void: “I make you wanna be someone. I make you want to waste it, I make you wanna waste some time.”  Check out the song via Stereogum HERE.

 

Having released nothing more than a live EP from the band’s debut performance in a Boston basement, Twen – lead by Fitzsimmons and guitarist Ian Jones – has been redefining what an essentially un-streamable band looks like in an increasingly digital world. The band has been on the road non-stop touring for the past two years, perfecting a raw and mesmerizing live show – a feat few bands can muster without a proper release. With DIY at the core of the band’s ethos, the two Twenmasterminds have run Airbnbs while touring, played in exchange for skydiving, screen printed self-designed merch items by hand, and booked their own tours. With touring now defining how a rock band can earn keep in 2019, Twen has no problem traveling back in time to pen their debut studio full-length, which will be announced and released later this year.

 

Though unabashedly indie rock, Twen’s songs genre-bend from shoe-gaze-sized walls of sound to Beatle-esque call-and-response vocal harmonies. While Jones’ delicate finger-picking patterns ring through fuzz and distortion, combining folk roots with in-your-face rock; Fitzsimmons’ voice weaves through guitar lines with Cocteau Twin’s inspired flair, giving breath of ethereal mysticism to any club show. The often fragmented and stream-of-consciousness lyrics are intensified by countless infectious melodies that are as timeless as they are simple.
