TWIN PIGS – Scandinavian Nightmare
Luftslott Records – 2018
By working at Vaterland I’m extremely fortunate to work with a wealth of incredible bands. Usually I’ll do my research before mixing a band, but sometimes life gets in the way and I have to trust my judgement that I can translate their sound to the audience in a way that does them justice. So every now and then a surprise slips under my radar and blows my mind during soundcheck. Twin Pigs is one of those bands. Existential yet playful social commentary wrapped up in an electro-punk punch to the face. I fucking LOVE this album. It ticks so many boxes. Fun? Check. Substance? Check. And hooks? Double check. Get this in your ear holes and don’t miss them next time they’re in town.
