The Chicago-based electro-pop group Psychic Twin will embark on a US tour next week. The ten day jaunt will include a number of shows at this year’s SXSW Music Festival in Austin. Stay tuned for the band’s full SXSW schedule.
Today the band also shares the B-side track “Dream State.” The song will be included on their upcoming Strangers 7″, which will be released digitally on March 5, and on limited-edition vinyl April 2.
Two and a half years ago, Erin Fein began to pen a series of songs that would become the music of Psychic Twin. These songs emerged as intensely personal, nervously rhythmic, and indebted to the ’80s new-wave of her youth. While recording by herself, doubling her vocals and singing ghostly counter-melodies, she was overcome with the surreal but persistent feeling that she was writing and recording with her twin. “In an ideal situation,” she says, “there would have been two of me singing and playing the music.”
In the summer of 2012, drummer Jonny ‘Magic’ Sommer joined Psychic Twin.
