TWEN Announce Debut LP + Share “Damsel”

Twen came up in the Boston DIY punk scene, kicking off two straight years of touring in 2017 with nothing but a live EP from the band’s first-ever performance. Now based in Nashville, Twen announce their explosive debut album Awestruck. Featuring their first two studio singles “Waste” and “Holy River”, Awestruck is a time capsule two years in the making and recorded in different locations along the way. Though unabashedly indie rock, Twen’s songs genre-bend from shoe-gaze-sized walls of sound to Beatle-esque call-and-response harmonies, while frontperson Jane Fitzsimmons’ voice weaves through guitarist Ian Jones’ guitar lines with Cocteau Twin’s inspired flair, giving breath of ethereal mysticism across the album. Awestruck will be out on September 20th via Frenchkiss – pre-order HERE.

Today Twen share the album’s massive, sun-drenched lead single “Damsel.” Listen to the song, check out the video and read an interview with the band exclusively on i-D HERE.

Twen is, of course, on the road now in support of White Reaper. The band headlines Union Pool in Brooklyn tonight as well. See below to find a show near you, and get your tickets HERE.
