After the success of their debut EP, Waxen Myriad, in 2014, Brisbane band Twin Haus began this year recording their awaited follow up, set to be released on March 22nd through Bedlam Records. Whilst continuing to reaffirm their status as one of the best live bands that their city has to offer, the four piece bunkered down for most of 2015 in a preparatory writing mode for their latest release.
Titled Nothing Lavish, the EP explores sprawling soundscapes, an articulate display of intricate musicality and expansive sonic journeys that transport you to another platform. In other words, this is Twin Haus at their best.
The band have pulled out all the stops to make this their most refined and most accomplished record yet. From 9-minute epics to dark, emotive numbers, Nothing Lavish is as expansive and experimental as it is meticulous and considered. Working with renowned Brisbane producer Steve Kempnich and ARIA award-winning producer/mix engineer Tim Carr, the band are now set to build upon their lead single I Used To Think with decadent psychedelia and meticulous rock, refusing to compromise their sound.
To celebrate the release of their EP, the band will be hitting the road for their biggest tour yet, travelling the country for most of April and May. Kicking off with a hometown show on April 1st, Twin Haus are set to take their formidable live show through capital cities and regional centres across Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and Western Australia, as well as a quick stop in the nation’s capital. Becoming an absolute force to be reckoned with on stage, this is a band that has to be seen to be believed.
Following on from a two-week collaborative campaign between Twin Haus and a variety of visual artists from across the globe to create an interpretive series reflective of the EP’s tracklist, Twin Haus are now incredibly proud to finally release Nothing Lavish in all its glory.
Nothing Lavish is out March 22 via Bedlam Records.
