Twin Peaks

Twin Peaks


Les quatre jeunes de Chicago, Cadien Lake James, Clay Frankel, Connor Brodner et Jack Dolan pas encore totalement affranchis de l’autorité parentale défendent fièrement sur leur second album Wild Onion leur vision d’un rock’n’roll insouciant mais jamais insolent. Et que cette douce rébellion fait plaisir à entendre ! Un an après le premier album Sunken aux couleurs psych garage désinhibées, notre quatuor semble avoir pris goût au confort de l’Observatory Studio de Chicago pour enregistrer pas moins de seize pistes, beaucoup moins lo-fi, mais toujours profondément garage, qui ne comptent pas s’éterniser avec nous comme le veut le célèbre adage « ce fût bref, mais intense ».


Give Twin Peaks an inch and they’ll take a stretch of the road. Having careened across America and beyond, sharing their staggering energy, the band made their third album the best way they know how: by themselves. The same group that produced the scuzzy squalor of their debut “Sunken,” had legions of fans screaming along to their anthemic sophomore effort, “Wild Onion,” now swings and serenades with “Down In Heaven” (out on Communion on May 13th).

Co-produced by the band and longtime collaborator R. Andrew Humphrey, and mixed by new confidant John Agnello (Dinosaur Jr., Kurt Vile, Sonic Youth), the record is by turns raw, polished and wise beyond its years. The diverse new songs beg the listener to sway slowly, bang their head wildly and question what they were doing wasting emotional time on anything less. It is a marked, and some may say mature, development for a band that doesn’t know how to play it safe. They aren’t here to tell you what youth is like or what being a little older now means, though; they want to join you in a conversation about why we hurt, love and tug at each other.
