This late spring finds Black Twig hard at work on the follow up album to last year’s well received Heliogram. In the meantime the band are offering a new single before the promise of unheard gems materialises before years end.
Get your Diary out! Here’s a list of confirmed shows for Soliti acts this coming Spring/Summer.
The sunnier climate of Spain, where Black Twig played this last summer supplies the backdrop to the new video for the pulsating drone of Heliogram LP cut Floors.
Black Twig‘s Halfways, the opening track from sophomore album Heliogram, delivers dream like states of ringing guitar notes and punctuated rhythm (and yes the guitar break is pure Loaded). A looping chord sequence moves to the left and then right, but returns to the elegant motoric jangle. Johanna Heikkilä‘s film creates the perfect accompaniment to Halfways. The 1990’s home footage rarely varies, but creates it’s own altered state of repetition, comparable to Warhol‘s beach voyeurism combined with the jump/cut glitch of experimentation.
