These first 2 tracks from TWINKIDS are a gorgeous intro to a duo I’m very excited about. 1 part J-Pop songwriter and 1 part collegiately trained classical pianist, their disparate worlds collide in this weightlessÂ and moody magic. Keep em back to back and on repeat.Â
TWINKIDS hail from Oberlin, the same musical cornucopia that famously spawned Trans Am, Teengirl Fantasy, True Panther Sounds, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and more. The duo’s disparate musical backgrounds are present in the material – one worked as a J-Pop songwriter in Tokyo, whereas the other studied classical piano at the collegiate level. Together they make music that strives to bend the defintion of pop music while paying homage to its forward thinking contributors, big and small.
