TWÏNS is the project of Berlin-based artist Miro Denck. Today, he has shared “Peace,” the lead-track off their forthcoming album, The Human Jazz, available February 19, 2022 via Earth Libraries. Along with the new single, TWÏNS has also shared the b-side “Anatman.” The Human Jazz was mastered by Carl Saff, and produced + engineered + mixed by Miro Denck.
TWÏNS on “Peace:”
“To be honest, this is one of the most intimate songs on the record which generally is one revolving around break-up and trying to tackle impermanence, and as such it’s certainly the one where I felt most vulnerable recording it. It’s really nothing else than self-therapy, and other than that me trying to communicate with someone through the means of a song when I couldn’t in real life. And thus actually postponing said communication. In a way maybe like writing someone a letter, putting all your effort into trying to make it as beautiful and honest as possible and then never sending it. It already takes a lot of weight of your shoulders — and it kept doing so every time I listened to it, repeating my lament, my excuses and my hopes like a mantra.
Like all the other songs on the record, I recorded and produced it all by myself. In that sense it was to me what recording music alone has always been to me, retreating to a safe space and opening up completely. Experimentation, trial and error until I found the language I was looking for to say the things I wanted to say, but for most part it’s sort of a cleansing, spiritual experience in which I feel closer to the world around me as well as within me, closer to love, closer to life.”
He hopes listeners take the following away from the track:
“Whatever it may be is what it is. I don’t believe in telling people how they should perceive art. It’s a very subjective experience. In any way I hope that they can connect and that it gives them something that makes them feel alive.”
