Twerps share “Shoulders,” North American Tour

Twerps share “Shoulders” from their forthcoming album Range Anxiety

“Shoulders” is the gentle closer to Side A of Range Anxiety, the new full-length from Melbourne’s Twerps (out January 27 in the US and February 3 in Europe via Merge Records, January 23 in Australia via Chapter Music). Additional previews of songs on Range Anxiety can be found in this album trailer shot with singer-guitarist Marty Frawley, which Wondering Sound says, “is the perfect combination of earnest and witty, salty and sincere — just like the band’s music.” Last month, the quartet announced the record along with a music video for “Back To You”.
