Reliably informed

Twayn twins Hannah and Grace have brought a slice of lovesick doo wop-inflected pop to their new single. There’s something of David Lynch’s aesthetic here, in a song that sounds like it could be played on the stage at The Roadhouse in Twin Peaks.

The song is steeped in a haunted Americana, with a I-vi-IV-V chord progression in 6/8, almost whispered close harmony vocals that sound a little like the Everley Brothers (… but sisters… obviously). There’s even some reverb drenched strings, and it’s all played out over a slightly warped synth foundation that adds to the eeriness.

Importantly, sitting underneath all these well-observed aesthetic touches is a quality song that is innovative but immediately familiar on first listen.
