Twin Stranger release “Pirouette” through Rose Parade Recording Company on
September 21st – a shining example of their distinctive take on modern power pop,
blending 80s/90s new wave sounds and chorus-kissed guitars.
Led by Alex McConnachie’s explorative approach to songwriting, Pirouette was
conceived from demo guitar riffs and bass lines inspired by Gentle Giant, early-80s
Rush and Neil Young, lyrically topped-off with streams of consciousness captured
over morning coffees, and recorded at Stompbox as a live band.
“Pirouette is about finally feeling confident again after a period of reflection and
being a bit of an introvert. It’s about feeling a sense of release,” explains Alex.
Certainly no strangers to the South Wales music scene, Pirouette will be the band’s
3rd single in the last 2 years, demonstrating yet again their ability to ascend to new
musical heights. This has been reflected in their recognition from BBC Introducing
and coverage from the likes of KROQ and SiriusXM.
Masters of their avant-indie craft, from their astounding live performances to their
cleverly satirical music videos, Twin Stranger never fail to delight their audience,
with recent slots at Devauden Festival and Cardiff’s Hub Festival.
