Interview: Twin Wave

Twin Wave

Twin Wave

We hate to admit this, but despite their awesome, dream rock sound, we’ve only just heard of Brooklyn trio, Twin Wave.

With this in mind, we were at liberty to find out more from vocalist, Nick Williams…

Twin Wave is a band that has been about for some time, but this is the first time we’ve heard your music. Talk us through the members of the band, how you all met and came to form Twin Wave as it stands today.

We first started playing together in 2013 after myself (Nick Williams, vocalist) and Maxx Berkowitz (guitarist) met as neighbors living in Crown Heights, Brooklyn in 2012. We quickly became friends and found a mutual interest in music and eventually became roommates in Williamsburg. From there, we linked with Sarik Kumar (guitarist) who was living in Greenpoint, and helped form what would became Twin Wave.

Describe your sound in three words.

Dreamy, sleek, retro-inspired.

You new single, ‘Matador’, is inspired by Ernest Hemingway’s ‘The Sun Also Rises’. How did that title come about?

I was first drawn to Hemingway’s works, and that specific novel, while living abroad in Paris in 2008. The passages about bullfighting as an art form rather than a sport always stuck out to me and it was the first thing that came into my head when Sarik and Maxx first wrote the guitar riff that begins the track! It sort of wrote itself from there.

Where do you cite your musical influences from?

We are actually a pretty eclectic bunch between the three of us! We have myriad interests in music and genres, but there is a definite underlying commonality which we share — our tastes overlap in The Police, The War on Drugs, Future Islands, and Radiohead!

We love new music at Indietronica. What new music are you listening to?

Lewis Del Mar, MUNA, Sturgill Simpson, Caveman, and Lucius!

Twin Wave will be playing a single release show today at Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn. ‘Matador’ is the lead single from their forthcoming EP, ‘Pour Out The Dark’ and has been produced by Tommy Eichmann (Alex Winston).

Chelsea Effect – Good Enough

Chelsea Effect

Chelsea Effect

Chelsea Effect is a new band project founded by Canadian born artist, Emerald Isabella. The project is named after the effect the legendary Hotel Chelsea in New York City had on pop culture in the 1960’s.

The vocals on her debut single, ‘Good Enough’ reminds us of an early Ellie Goulding, but with a modern twist thanks to the wobbling electronic beats.

The track was co-written and produced by Bram Inscore (Beck, Troye Sivan, Twin Shadow) and mixed by Andrew Maury (RAC, Lewis Del Mar).

Sounds like: Monogem, Evvy, Ellie Goulding, REMMI, SP¡ON
