Twin Temple like to let you know who they are from the off so there’s no misunderstanding. They are rock ‘n’ roll satanists. Their new single , Satan’s A Woman (and why shouldn't she be?) follows on from their album Twin Temple Bring You Their Signature Sound….Satanic Doo-Wop. You should, by now, know what you’re getting into.

- Satan's A Woman by Twin Temple
It seems to me the PR department at the Satanic Temple are working overtime right now. Earlier this year the film ‘Hail Satan?’ succeeded in dismantling many of the false accusations levelled against Satanists, making them come across less evil, and more like if all the Goths who got gentrified out of the Corn Exchange ended up going into activism. I don’t know where those Goths ended up, mind, it could have been activism.
So for 2019’s next slice of pro-Satanist media we’ve got ‘Satan’s A Woman’ by Twin Temple, a charming little 7” that takes an almost doo-wop sound, and uses it to sing about Satan (who else?) Even if this was all a joke, it would be quite a good one. For whatever else was going on behind the scenes, the sort of music Twin Temple are aping had an air of purity around it. These musicians were the ones who were wronged, not the ones doing the wronging.
What’s most important to remember here is that sometimes, people deserve to be wronged. B-side ‘I Am A Witch’ features the lyrics, “I do whatever I please, hex the patriarchy”, to which I say, yes please! A-side ‘Satans A Woman’ meanwhile has singer Alexandra James inhabiting the role of Satan and wondering why she’s generally thought of as a man. Who can say!
It's not a joke though. Twin Temple clearly take this all very seriously, and the music's all the more fun for it.
