Brooklyn-based Twin Wave first came together in 2013. The five-some, members Nick Williams [vocals], Sarik Kumar [guitar], Maxx Berkowitz [guitar], Andrew Ockenden [bass] and Vishnu Anatha [drums], soon honed their unique sound, described as a potent cocktail of melodies, meditative lyrics, and a bed of psychedelic guitars and rhythms.
Their debut single “Relapse” and subsequent self-titled EP out last December, was recorded at Sound Machine Studios in New York City, produced by Andrew Lappin (Vensaire, Torres) and mastered by Alan Douches (Xiu Xiu, Cloud Nothings). The four-song EP also featured the slow-burning “Your Ghost” and “I’m Sold,” as well as the expansive “Monterey.”
Twin Wave have focused on building up their live presence in New York and periodically escaping for retreats in the suburbs to craft new material. The result hit this summer, recording buoyant new singles “Into The Night” and “Feel You,” reflecting a growth in their sound — once again produced by Andrew Lappin and mastered by Alan Douches.
Twin Wave looks to keep up their ascent, hitting CMJ once again this year for the Buzzchips showcase at Cameo Gallery on Oct 24, and the Wild Honey Pie’s 5th Birthday Bash, The Beehive, on Oct 25. The latter is sponsored by SquareSpace, and will take place at the Brooklyn Night Bazaar, also featuring Little Daylight, Modern Rivals, Sun Club, Fort Lean, and the Echo Friendly.
