"Keeps you guessing throughout… These guys know how to craft something truly admirable, and we can’t wait to hear more" - The Music Ninja
“A head-spinning collection of songs” - the 405
Born out of the ashes of the critically acclaimed Crushing Blows, GHOST TWINS are a noise and dream pop duo from Derby, UK - Their former incarnation CB, earned support from Huw Stevens, Steve Lamacq, Artrocker, Shell Zenner, Jen Long and Simon Raymonde & more and were regulars on the festival circuit.
'Unknown Animal | Dream On / Dream Off' is the majestic first offering since the band’s reformation. With electronics and drum machines coming to the forefront, this aesthetic evolution reflects the organic changes the band experienced recording their debut album, due in early 2014.
The double A side marries the intricacies of their previous work; looped guitars and uncommon time signatures with a more ethereal and experimental pop element that implores Ghost Twins to explore an unassailable myriad of influences that will certainly appeal to fans of Mirrored era Battles, or the Pink Mist heavyweights of Tubelord, Three Trapped Tigers and Tall Ships.
Reviews starting to emerge are all in agreement that the GT are onto something head-spinning which will be sure to keep their fans and new listeners immersed to their every move. It’s the vast range of sounds and ideas within these tracks that make this band so unique, exciting, and especially hard to box in.
The single was released on the 7th of October on Snug Recording Co, a new label and recording studio based in Derby. The aim of the label is to break away from traditional industry models by working with artists on a cooperative, collaborative basis to produce small releases without the pressures of money, market ability or contracts, with all releases agreed upon a handshake only. This, the first release on the label, exemplifies their core values with two unsettled, dark, yet intriguing pieces of dreamy, electric pop music.
Unknown Animal | Dream On / Dream off will be available from ghosttwins.bandcamp.com and all major digital download stores on October 7th and will also feature on Ghost Twins debut LP, due for release in early 2014.
Ghost Twins’ are Chris Jones and Andrew Foster.
