Summer Twins a two piece made up of two sisters. Their sound is all about half-imagined 1960’s summers in California: bouncy garage rock with harmonising pop vocals over the top. Good times music essentially. Limbo is the most developed their songs have sounded to date, without shedding the loose joy key that is key to the band. On Burger Records.
7/10 Clinton Staff review, 03 February 2016Though not strictly twins, Summer Twins are sisters from Riverside CA. It sounds nice there. Is it nice there? I bet the sun shines a lot. You can tell by the way they write melodious strummy pop that is fuzzy but with that streak of feel good sunshine vibe that you don’t get if you live in Pudsey. I’ve spent my post breakfast hangover (yup I get hangovers off foods these days) listening to this LP and it’s all very lovely - somewhere between Best Coast back when they were good and 1950’s 'Happy Days' style ballads. “Our World’ is a particularly delicious listen when you take your date to the top of a hill over looking the bay after the prom. ‘Ju Ju’ too has that surfy vibe of Del Shannon and Eddie Cochran with harmonies slathered a top. On first listen the songs are pleasant if not mind-blowing. ‘Blinds’ is a great opener however with a majestic chorus which builds to a keening crescendo. Melody wise it sounds like something Super Furry Animals might come up with. Elsewhere it’s like a really nice dog, throughly enjoyable.
