Formed earlier this year in Aarhus, Denmark, Twin Dive is set at crossroads of grunge, garage and alternative rock. In a time when masculinity is often accompanied by words like ‘hyper’ and ‘toxic’, this new band holds onto their male domain with style and a refreshing confidence.
Their debut track “Animal” lurks in with a smooth looping bass line, followed by a stone-faced lead singer coming in strong on a psychedelic verse which lyrically suggests a predator tendency with “I’m a wolf, I guess”. The chorus, almost unannounced, explodes in a gritty wall of sound elaborating on the earlier presumption with the lyric “I’ll be your animal!”. The band stated that even though the song was inspired by a sexually predominant experience, in its essence it’s about knowing and taming the inner animal.
