Twist "Places"

Twist is the project of Laura Hermiston, who just revealed sophomore LP, Distancing (out December 7th on Buzz Records). The LP continue\s her partnership with producer Brian Borcherdt of Holy Fuck, while bringing her touring bandmates, including members of Zeus, Biblical and Michael Rault’s backing band, into the studio for the first time.

From Laura Hermiston:

“Two summers ago in Toronto I found an old Juno 106 and a Yamaha TX7 module collecting dust in my Dad’s home studio. “Places” started with me recording at home with these new synths. Getting to write on what was my dad’s old gear was really cool for me, and I’m sure, in part, helped me to channel a grounded energy into the track.

I wanted to write about a very specific moment where you are just being. You are not fixating on the past. Not giving into anxious thoughts about the future. Just taking in your surroundings. Feeling at peace for a brief moment. My bandmate Matt and I evolved the demo together over a few days, using his DX100, and adding the Moog bass line which I love. The demo served as a ghost track we used when recording last fall at Union Sound where we recorded live drums and guitars.”

In support of the release the band will setting off on an East Coast in December, before a longer run in the new year. The first phase of those dates can be found below.
