If Tom Petty and Mac Demarco raised a family of boys from Chicago and turned them into a band, they might come out to be Twin Peaks. (Sounds like a really good reality show, VICELAND?) Down in Heaven, the newest music baby from Chicago rock band Twin Peaks, carries a genuine vintage feel, a cohesive sound that is hard to achieve when you have four different front men on any given song. The album contains a little something for everybody; catchy melodies, unique vocal performances (which, remind me of the late 60’s, early 70’s) accompanied by finely tuned bluesy guitar tones and jangly rock piano. There’s a familiar feel to the album even upon first listen.
Where some might say the Twin Peaks played it safe on Down in Heaven, (Consequence of Sound, you wet shit blanket of a media outlet, you,) I beg to differ. Twin Peaks third full length album is everything you need to round out your summer playlist. Digestible, groovy and all around musically intriguing. Down in Heaven is aimed at making you shake your hips with intentions, as the dudes bring the album to the masses.
The boys of Twin Peaks are on a massive tour across the United States and Europe in support of the latest release until November 1st. Catch them at our favorite intimate watering hole, The Social on September 13th. I’m sure that next time they come back they’ll be playing a larger venue.
I was lucky enough to catch their whole set at Bonnaroo this past summer where they were one of the most exciting sets Thursday night. I remember their stage being way more packed than I expected, (I guess I’m late again.) I went to sit and relax in the back after a long first day, but remember standing for a majority of the time, moving around to the high energy set and jams Twin Peaks served us. I’m stoked for us to shrink that crowd energy of ten thousand people into the Social, for what is sure to be an exceptionally rad show.
