After an exceedingly hard day at the beach (I went for a wee swim and there were loads of waves and the water was so salty… intense) and then home for a barbecue cooked by my brilliant housemates, I had a listen to Peak Twins. Their slacker-rock feel really complimented my slacker-like lazy day.
They’ve branded themselves ‘hunk rock’. I’m not quite sure what this means, but it sure sounds good. Peak Twins formed after a late night alcohol infused music making escapade. After a few glasses of wine, I often do think to myself that I could be the next Donna Summer. However when these guys woke up the following day, there was no panging regretful feeling, due to both the horrendous singing and consumption of greasy food. They instead realised that what they had done wasn’t too shabby at all, and Peak Twins* was born.
Peak Twins are Liam Kenny on guitar and vocals and Joel Carey on percussion and vocals. They offer a low-fi, lazy sound with solid, punchy vocals sprinkled on top. Peak Twins’ self titled album is available from Bedroom Suck Records and is out on iTunes now. Their previous works; 2011’s Needles and Pins EP is available for $1, while the I’m Out EP is downloadable for no cost whatsoever from the boys’ Bandcamp!
