Twin Drugs share final single »Eyelets & Aglets« from »In Now Less Than Ever« album out October 7!
Crispy snapping drums and chunky bass power through this song »Eyelets & Aglets«. Pop in its rooted sensibility, Twin Drugs writhe and wrestle with this ear worm, sharpening its teeth and pushing towards that passionate, ever raw world of distortion.
Using harsh noise to induce a turbulent trip and soothing vocals for an indefinite high, Twin Drugs take you on a hallucinogenic voyage, combining the dreamy atmospheres of My Bloody Valentine and A Place To Bury Strangers with the punishing riffing of Metz.
“Covid is just one grain of sand in the hourglass of general existential anxiety,” Melton continues, referring to the increasing complexity and ambiguity of our lives in an age of mass-deception, proxy wars and global panic. Inspired by cosmic horror and the near-psychedelic archival footage compilations of British documentary filmmaker Adam Curtis, Melton, together with bandmates Alex Wilson (drums, live-electronics) and Christian Monroe (bass), collages the band’s own image of a world in decay. Mastered to perfection by Cult Of Luna’s Magnus Lindberg and with cover art by Christopher Royal King (Symbol, ex-This Will Destroy You), »In Now Less Than Ever« is a complete experience that creeps up on you like only existential dread can.
»In Now Less Than Ever« merges two distinct approaches to distortion (shoegaze and noise rock) to create a mind-altering experience that is as much about dreaming on as it is about waking up. The familiarity of found audio extracts, ranging from Indian flute players to obscure Japanese jazz bands, blends with subtle shifts in rhythm, creating a fitting experience of the world’s structural ambiguity.
Written, produced & mixed by Twin Drugs in their studio located in Richmond, Virginia.
