Twist – “Bleached”

Twist – “Bleached”

Toronto outfit Twist are gearing up to drop their debut LP, Spectral, in a little less than two weeks. They’ve already shared the lead single “Can’t Wait,” and today they offer the followup “Bleached” via The Fader. It’s a dense, highly melodic, slow-galloping track with distortion and clamorous guitars balanced by Laura Hermiston’s floating vocals. Most of the album was developed in the apartment of Holy Fuck’s Brian Borcherdt, and you can hear that homespun, garage feel unfurl into something bigger and more polished on “Bleached.” Listen.
