"Local Record Review: Summer Twins from Riverside"

A bit of a neighboring visit here seeing as Summer Twins are from the Inland Empire, but their upcoming acoustic show this Saturday at the Camp in Costa Mesa makes them local for at least one evening. The duo of Chelsea and Justine Brown--guitarist and drummer respectively in the full quartet lineup, as well as being the lead vocalists--drive the band on The Good Things, perfectly positioned between sweetly winsome duo parts and some enjoyable rock bite in equal measure.

(Justine's percussive role may also explain the ease with which the band time-changes on many of their songs like the excellent "Good Friends," a rhythmic touch not many straight up rock bands allow themselves to try.) Hints of all kinds of approaches crop up throughout the six song release--"Snake vs. Snow" starts with a charging chime that suggests some of the best Anglophilic rock, "The More I Think of You" has both sunshine pop and classic country kicking around--but Summer Twins are already well on their way to finding a sharp, fun synthesis. - OC Weekly Blog

Summer Twins are sisters Chelsea and Justine Brown. Based in Riverside, Ca, USA, the two write dream-pop and rock ‘n roll songs with a fresh take on inspiration from past genres of the ‘50s and ‘60s. In their early teens, Chelsea picked up the guitar, while Justine taught herself to play drums, and the sisters have been playing together in different groups ever since. They formed Summer Twins in 2008, with a focus on singing pop melodies in harmony, while playing their respective instruments. Summer Twins currently play live around Orange County and Los Angeles with an additional guitarist Marcio Rivera and bassist Danny Delgado. The band is now working on releasing their first full length album to be released with Burger Records (Fullerton, CA) and IRMA Records (Japan).
"We want to take it beyond the music and create a full experience- we really want to bring the listener into our world. We want to create this dream world that is maybe a little nostalgic because it's not really there; this dream world that we create through everything we do."
The Summer Twins use videos, photos, and other craft projects along with the music to make it an overall experience.
