Today Nashville-via-Boston DIY scene duo Twen share a new single. The celestial and angular epic, “Baptism,” out today, is taken from their forthcoming album, Awestruck. On this track, which the band has played live for over three years now, Jane Fitzsimmons’ impressionistic lyrics dream of yearning, of wanting to be born and becoming, while guitarist Ian Jonesembodies time itself by revisiting a riff written as a teenager, reworked with fresh perspective. Listen to the song exclusively on Billboard HERE.
Twen recently wrapped a U.S. tour with White Reaper, and announced a European tour this Fall in support of Tacocat. Today, the band announces a run of U.S. shows with The Dodos, as well as a hometown album release show for Awestruck at The Basement in Nashville.
