Hailing from Brooklyn, these 5 guys are ready for success. A cool logo, a nice website all set up, complete social media profiles and a debut single up for sale on iTunes and bandcamp. Influenced by Tame Impala, Radiohead, Frank Ocean and Alt-J, Twin Wave promises something great. And it is. If I’d be wearing a hat right now, I’d take it off to them, producing a debut track with such a mature and just absolutely lovely sound. With a sold out debut show in the pocket, I’m sure we won’t have to wait too long to see them rock the stage in Europe. Until then, we can enjoy Relapse and soon also the rest of their EP. - Pony Dance Clyde

Brooklyn quintet, Twin Wave, are relatively new to the scene, having only formed in August of last year. But based on their debut single entitled “Relapse,” you don’t hear the sound of an amateur band. With the support of clear-cut and sharp production, they smoothly blend soul, pop, jazz, and psychedelic elements (think Alt-J crossed with Electric Guest) – and that’s only on their single. The solid rhythm section consists of jazz-like percussion with a thick bass riff while keyboards shimmer in and out, leading to a brief guitar solo at the end.

The fluidity and smoothness of it all is where they come off as a band with a developed and mature sound, making it easy to forget that they’ve been together for less than a year. Their debut four-track EP is slated for release this summer, but “Relapse” makes it easy to feel eager and excited. - The Owl Mag

Jazz. Soul. Rock. Pop. It’s not often that artists can weave their way through such seemingly diverse genres and emerge with music that’s both fresh and exciting. As far as mainstream goes, only Mute Math comes to mind. Hopefully, after their debut track “Relapse” makes the rounds, Twin Wave will join their company. The Brooklyn outfit have been described as “psychedelic synth pop,” but their music is far more than that. “Relapse” is actually quite reminiscent of Mute Math; it’s music that’s pleasant on the ears while also indicative of technical skill. That’s not something you see much of these days. We’re proud to be premiering the track, which you can download below. Stay tuned for Twin Wave’s debut EP this summer. - All Things Go

Bio

Since forming in August 2012, psychedelic alt-pop outfit Twin Wave have pulled from elements of soul, synth pop, psychedelia and trip-hop, building their unique sound and atmosphere fused with a poetic and meditative lyric sensibility. On May 1, they premiered their first single Relapse via All Things Go: http://allthingsgomusic.com/premiere-twin-wave-relapse. Produced by Andrew Lappin at Sound Machine Studios in Manhattan, Relapse is the first track revealed from their forthcoming four-track debut EP. On the heels of its success, they were lucky enough to be invited to perform at this years' New Music Seminar - and played Pianos on June 11 as part of the 3-day festival: http://www.pianosnyc.com/showroom/new-music-seminar-06112013. They also were chosen to take part in a worldwide live stream performance during the MTV and VH1 O Music Awards in Times Square, and received the "Make An Employee Band Famous" award. They continue to write and craft new music and are excited to release their debut 4 track EP this September, featuring "Relapse" "Your Ghost" "I'm Sold" and "Monterey." They hope to continue to reach new audiences.
