Exclusive Spin: Twin Foxes — ST

Exclusive Spin / News / January 22, 2015

Twin Foxes aren’t afraid to get a little dirty. There’s an audible layer of fuzz that hangs over their debut self-titled EP, each crash of the kit hanging around for about a half-second longer than more cleanly produced work, the vocal work taking on a live feel, while still retaining the emotional nuance needed for a song like “Year On A String,” which exclaims, “I’m conditioned to feel this way.” It’s that balance that makes the Providence-based outfit so appealing; they’re a little grimey, but it’s not a contest of who can play the loudest, they’re still playing music you can directly relate to, can understand. And while “Summer’s Halo” is the standout track — those vocals just remind me of bands around in my youth — it’s the exclamation that they’re going to “Shed” their skin in that final track that knocked me back a bit. When they finally say “end,” you’re allowed to stop listening. Very excited about this premiere.

The EP is currently available on vinyl through Full City Sour and on cassette at Disposable America, with the former on red wax. The EP will be released officially on January 23rd.
