Twin Lakes are an Australian Indie Pop band born in the suburbs of Newcastle, New South Wales. The band consists of brothers Eddie (vox/guitar) and Huw (vox/guitar) Garven along with Dan Pavez (bass, guitar), Ben Russell (keys, bass, guitar, engineering/production) and Sean Kelleher (drums/percussion). They write songs that are both infectious and melodic, fused with tangled simplicity.

Biography

Good music grasps your attention. But incredible, timeless music pulls you inside it. The songs of Twin Lakes are an absorbing volume of emotional depth. Each melody is a pool in which to drift and drown. Echoed, haunting guitar intros and dynamic drumming arrive at the ears as if passed through the surface of water, arousing the synapses, and inviting you into an immersive sonic landscape. Shimmering, atmospheric and taut melodies lead you to the edge before some small inflection – a single note or harmonic moment – forces you to dive in. The aching, nuanced voice of Eddie Garven is the current that draws you beneath.
Born in the suburbs of Newcastle, during downtime for Garven’s other group, Seabellies, Twin Lakes existed in the ether as home recordings of coalesced ideas. But when an offer arrived for Twin Lakes to play a live performance, the singer and guitarist decided that it was time for his project to take the next step.
Garven brought together a group of accomplished musicians. Twin Lakes sees Garven work with his brother, guitarist and vocalist Huw. On bass and backing vocals is Dan Pavez. On keys, bass, vocal and engineering/production duties is Ben Russell. On drums is Sean Kelleher, a fellow Seabellies member.
Since forming, the band have managed to produce quite an impressive list of accolades including a semi final listing in the 2013 International Songwriting Competetion for their debut single 'Glacier'. They also showcased at 2014's Canadian Music Week in Toronto, Canada which included such acts as Tegan and Sara, City and Colour and Ellie Goulding. This is all off the back of just two singles. 
The band is set to release their third single 'Wolf Hall' in November with their debut ep slated for release in 2015. 


Lyrics

Glacier

Written By: Eddie Garven,Huw Garven,Sean Kelleher,Daniel Pavez,Jake Graham

Alarm bells singe the midnight sky
A pressure that builds to modify
A fading smile missiles a spark inside limbo
You see now after all that’s said and done
A love that shares no fun
A hunger that feeds on the blood in everyone

A bottle of lies fills up their eyes
Gangs tied up smothers their cries
A burning bridge they watch from high in their window
A muffled sound floats deep within the woods
With eyes that hide their hoods
A curse in the night sunken cries that paralyze

All messed up, where can you go? Oh oh
Coat their skin in the night
Blinking lights in their windows light up
Fragile flames in the fight
Misty eyed can’t hide their lies oh oh

A bleeding heart never to part
A tightened grip choked from the start
Cables that run from the sun, filtering through what has begun
Their creepy tongues lie dormant within dry mouths
A game they play for hours
Reflecting limbs, shattered glass that peel their eyes

All messed up, where can you go? Oh oh
Coat their skin in the night
Blinking lights in their windows light up
Fragile flames in the night
Misty eyed can’t hide their lies oh oh

All messed up, where can you go? Oh oh

The Ageing Field

Written By: Eddie Garven,Huw Garven,Jake Graham,Daniel Pavez,Sean Kelleher

Stun you crows who creep through the ageing field
Forests of old steal the cold from the weary eyed
Pale by the brook, fusing limbs with their needles
Relics so old trembling hands avoid the able

Dusk til dawn they wander the ageing field
Stains mark their cloths, peel the sparks til they up and die
Hearts on their sleeves, chokes the breath from their black lungs
Frost from their mouths, keeps the creeps from the window

I saw it the look in your eyes takes me over
Through the flamed field
Seeps through my veins, dulls the pain, that you feel takes me home

Fire and stone, they float through the ageing field
Fearless and bold's what their told, till they amplify
Knives by their sides, keeps the hounds from the blood pool
Bitter they snarl, scraping nails through the front floor

I saw it the look in your eyes takes me over
Through the flamed field
Seeps through my veins, dulls the pain that you feel takes me home

I wouldn’t know how it feels to fall
The faces that call to the fate you stole
Faster it falls, you're the one that calls, takes me home, you don't know oh oh

Highs fill the lows, so why can’t you feel it
When the highs fill the lows so why can’t you feel it
Our way home, feels like stars in your eyes can't you feel it
When the highs fill the lows so why can’t you feel it
With the state that you're in

Wolf Hall

Written By: Eddie Garven

She stands alone
Hand held on the phone
Catching the wind beneath her vacant stare
Nothing left can take her there

He folds his arms
The pain that never comes
Pushed to the edge no one to hold him there
Tears of rage numb everywhere

Wolf Hall
No one to save us all
Wolf Hall
Thrown out against the sprawl
Blazed in fields of neon light
Twists in words that feed the cold dark night

She walks the street
A pain that builds defeat
Death has a way of finding everyone
Tongues lash out her secrets done

He grips the rope
Tied around her throat
Time passes quick, the rush it sets him free
Her eyes look up this has to be

Wolf Hall
No one to save us all
Wolf Hall
Thrown out against the sprawl
Blazed in fields of neon light
Twists in words that feed the cold dark night

Wolf Hall
No one to save us all
Wolf Hall
Thrown out against the sprawl
