OUT 10/2 ON BURGER RECORDS
LISTEN TO FIRST SINGLE ” DEMONS“
Sisters Chelsea and Justine Brown always knew they wanted to be in a band. For them, the vision came first; the songs came later.
They are the core members of Summer Twins, who weave together modern pop, ‘50’s sock hop melodies, and wild ‘60’s garage rock, topped with dreamy harmonies and a tinge of psychedelia. Their new record, Limbo, will see release on October 2nd via Burger Records. Chelsea plays guitar and Justine’s behind the drums, with Michael Rey on bass and Andy Moran on guitar and keyboards.
The Los Angeles-based, Riverside-raised sisters grew up on a steady diet of The Kinks and Beatles, as well as formal lessons in piano and violin. When they discovered punk bands like The Ramones and The Donnas – and the kinship and attitude that oozed from these bands – they were inspired to ditch the lessons and create their own gang of musicians.
With their new collection of songs (their 2nd full-length following their 2012 self-titled debut), themes like the reality of adulthood, and the struggle to balance art with making a living are explored. For ten rainy days in the winter of 2014, Chelsea, Justine, and producer Chris Woodhouse (Ty Segall, Thee Oh Sees) holed up in an isolated Sacramento studio and created Limbo. The seclusion and the intensity of the sessions are revealed through the album — this is Summer Twins music with a new bite to it. Also new is the greater role played by Justine as she shares the bass duties with Michael Rey, and makes her songwriting debut on two songs, singing and playing all the instruments on both “Florence” and “Helpless.” The sisters are responsible for almost all the instruments, save 5 bass and 2 keyboard tracks. Today, the band shares their first single, “Demons,” premiered earlier today on BUST.
