Rambunctious Toronto outfit Twist have singer and songwriter Laura Hermiston and Holy Fuck’s Brian Borcherdt as their core. They’ve recently found a fitting home as one of the latest additions to Toronto’s Buzz Records’ dependable roster. They celebrated a couple months ago with the one-off “Soaked,” and they’ve wasted no time in announcing their debut full-length out later this summer. “Can’t Wait” finds Hermiston’s pop sensibilities bolstered by an infectious guitar riff, crashing cymbals, intricately syncopated drums, and warped synths that slowly builds in energy. The song comes to calamitous crescendo on the hook as Hermiston’s voice rings out into the stratosphere. Listen.
Twist’s debut LP is out 8/29 via Buzz.
