The Twist

The Twist

 Budapest, Budapest, HUN

Envision the entwinement of two plants. One stemming from a mixed musical heritage; including raw rockandroll jangling psychedelia and pure pop potential. The other stemms from a specifically Hungarian strain of strangeness, best described by the atmosphere of the legendary novelist Krudy Gyula.


The Twist tells mesmerizing timeless tales of the most trivial events of the ugly present while remaining starry eyed, elusive and cruelly down-to-earth. They paint a complex picture of Eastern European realities. This dichotomy is the main drive of The Twist along with its local and global aspects. The band came to life from sheer inevitability. The members have been playing in well-known Hungarian bands for a long time. Just to mention a few: MIDEM EBBA Award winner Heaven Street Seven who also co-toured Australian legends The Church, Amber Smith and Yonderboi, Hungary’s sole internationally acclaimed pop-product. It was on a Yonderboi European tour in 2007 that the musicians made up their minds to finally make a band in its own right. Two of the tracks (The Original, Watching The Good Life) from their forthcoming album enjoy heavy airplay on Hungarian Radio. For their introductory video ’Message Come’ Aaron Phillips was the director of photography. Aarons previous credits include Incubus, The Raconteurs, Chris Cornell and TV On The Radio
