A mix of Mountain Man-esque vocals, Joy Division 80s soft synth sounds and spaced-out drums result in exploratory feelings…no wonder this is hitting a nerve in me.

Twin Sister is from “in and around NY,” and the band is playing tons of shows this month, including two with Pure Ecstasy at the end of the month. Those are guaranteed to be great shows.

“Ginger” is off the band’s EP, “Vampires with Dreaming Kids,” that they’re giving away on their site. It’s a breathtaking song that is grandiose and uplifting, yet still rooted in dark reality.

Thanks to Chocolate Bobka for turning me on.
