Psychic Twin streams new LP ‘Strange Diary’

Psychic Twin streams her new album 'Strange Diary'. The full-length is out today via Polyvinyl Records.

Psychic Twin, AKA: Erin Fein, is steaming her new album Strange Diary, which is out today via Polyvinyl. Psychic Twin is comprised of drummer Rosana Caban and Fein’s absorption of several sources of inspiration. While rooted in the avant pop of The Cocteau Twins, Siousxie, and Annie Lennox, contemporary production flourishes lend each song the clarity and buoyancy of modern pop.

On Strange Diary, Fein comments, “In the end it seems the world is a place full of opposites. We are often experiencing joy and pain at the very same time. I suppose we learn this at different points in our lives, but for me, the emotional duality that is so much apart of this life, never became more apparent than it did over the last 5 years and during the making of this record. The pain I was experiencing as I entered my thirties was splintered into different manifestations of loss and change. And yet even at my lowest points, times I wasn’t sure I could survive, there was always music and therefore, there was always beauty.”

She continues, “The creation of Psychic Twin and subsequently ‘Strange Diary’, allowed for me a very special way to process this duality, it truly helped me to survive the deepest pain, to gain perspective, but also to experience the simple elegance of sounds mixing together, like a sonic water color painting, swirling around my life and healing my broken heart. I have learned, that although life is filled with mistakes, pain and confusion, if you can just take small steps forward, if you can keep your heart open to creativity, to growth, to compassion and forgiveness, you will most certainly come face to face with joy again. It is always there, just waiting for you to be able to recognize it.”
