Having spent twelve months in the recording studio, on the back of three years touring, it’s no surprise that Twin Atlantic’s latest single ‘Heart and Soul’ is their best musical offering yet. Debuted on Radio 1 by Zane Lowe as his “Hotest Record in the World” and produced by Jacknife Lee, “Heart and Soul” is an infectious, energetic and addictive indie festival anthem in the making.
“Our aim was always to make songs this size,” says singer Sam McTrusty. “Coming from a punk rock background, it took a while – we like to say we went the scenic route. But it was the right route for us, full of interesting stops on which we learnt a lot – about ourselves, about each other, about how to make music that connects with fans which is always honest, never forced.”
Whilst their debut single “Free” was more mellow in its origins, “Heart and Soul” could not be a better name for this latest single, because Sam McTrusty, Ross McNae, Barry McKenns and Craig Kneale have really out their all into it. Far more powerful in its foundations, with reverb’d guitar glitches and catchy lyrics – its a meaner, nastier sound which is better than ever.
Having already confirmed The Great Escape festival May 10th and T in the Park this summer, we can’t wait to catch one of Twin Atlantic’s unforgettable live sets, plus their eagerly anticipated new album is due for release later in the year on Red Bull Records. Twin Atlantic are on a mission for global domination, which could very well be in their sights.
