Twin Stranger unveil hook laden new single "Crushed"

Twin Stranger in the last few days have unveiled their hook laden new single "Crushed". The Wales based band have recently only released one other track previously, with this being their second effort much was expected from them, and as far as we're concerned it's delivered!

Having formed as a quintet the band is led by singer and multi-instrumentalist Alex McConnachie. Initially a bedroom recording project, Alex enlisted his multi-instrumentalist brother Liam as well as friends, bassist Josh Newington, Joe Tobin on keyboards and drummer Eric Karvik, and today's line up is what creates those beautiful power-pop/rock sounds.

"Crushed" reminds us of a mix of Feeder and Stereophonics with some 90's brit-pop vibes added in for good measure, maybe that's why we loved the track from the first play. It's no wonder that with just two singles the five piece have been played on their local BBC Introducing station, and even more remarkable is that they've got air-time on none other than SiriusXM in the USA - and if you didn't know about that station in the USA, it's basically where you can find the BEST music from all over the world.

Speaking of the track Alex McConnachie says - " ... "Crushed is about realising that some people you know just love listening to the sound of their own voice and other people’s troubles and feelings and life troubles only really enter their mind for a split second, then they’re gone again. On a more positive note it’s also about summer time when you’re a teenager, the days blend into one and you’re just hanging out with your friends without a care in the world, just living in the moment."

With the band getting amazing coverage from their debut single, we feel like "Crushed" will be pushing the band into the stratosphere and can easily be one of the next hyped up guitar bands to break out from Wales. With fans all over South Wales and the West Country they're sounding like the real deal, just wait for more tunes, then expect to see them blow up!
