"Honestly" is the first studio track featuring the band in its permanent form, with Bill Sharp on bass and Oliver Morgan on drums.
Just a few months removed from their eponymous debut album, Twinsmith is back with Honestly, the band’s new 7” (available on tour and out November 19th on Saddle Creek). Though Jordan Smith (vocals/guitar) and Matt Regner (guitar/keys) have been playing together since 2007, only recently did they form Twinsmith. "Honestly" is the first studio track featuring the band in its permanent form, with Bill Sharp on bass and Oliver Morgan on drums.
Recorded and produced by Matt Carroll and J.J. Idt at Omaha’s Little Machine Studio, “Honestly” – with its fuzzed-out guitars reminiscent of Blue Album-era Weezer – shows off the evolution of a band still in its infancy. The 7’’ also re-releases two tracks off their debut album, with “1' 30”" and “Big Deal” both showing a range of influences on the band’s recent emergence. Omaha's Twinsmith is finding their new sound both geographically and sonically situated between the clever complexity of New York bands like The Walkmen and The Strokes and the shimmery West Coast ease characterized by the recent surf-pop revival. They will be doing a fall tour in support of the new 7’’ starting Oct. 25th.
