London-based trio Twisterbait is an alt-noise circus whose theatrical, Brit-spit vocal style is well-suited to this band's over-the-top attack of ranting vocals and super-fuzzed guitars. Recent press: Eric Loranger (I Spy Review) said, "It's a good thing the ever-expanding indie genre still holds a place for groups like this, who don't sound like Interpol or The Strokes! Rap your mind around that! No guitar downstroking, no hi-hat Franz Ferdinand drum beat, and no quiet-part-loud-part emo dynamics. Just goofy, energetic authenticity."
Our May Editor’s Choice Award honors a wild and crazy quintessential new millennium Rock Anthem with a fab title: “Let’s Go Shopping.” This catchy music with wacky lyrics and trendy bad boy vocals sums up the world’s therapeutic response to crime, bombs, greed, and other exciting current events.
Twisterbait is a wild UK group who mix electronics with dancey indie tunes, where bouncing beats support bluesy riffs and processed vocals... As produced by Simon Hanson (Death in Vegas), "Bombs" deploys the band's full-out assault of guitar, bass and drums. "Get On Our Bus" is clever and dynamic in its use of cut and paste techniques, and reminds us of a Brian Eno solo project. Cool stuff for alternative ears, campy dark humor, romantic comedy, a romping buddy movie, sitcom opening theme or movie credits, etc.
