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 catchy 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.”
In their first year, the group made a splash with sets at the New Music Seminar, MTV’s O Music Awards, and NYC’s CMJ Festival, followed by a strong showing in 2014, being named Myspace’s Artist of the Day in February, followed by an April residency at Arlene’s Grocery, and gigs opening for JD Samson & Men, Spirit Animal, and Great Caesar.
Twin Wave have also recently played with Little Daylight, Modern Rivals, Sun Club, Fort Lean, and the Echo Friendly.
