Pushing Forward What the 60s Started
Drawing from well-liked familiar roots of country and rock, the Lemon Twigs yet again display a scholarly aptitude for intricate yet accessible songwriting. It's easy to sound dervative when writing in these styles, but the D'Addario brothers once again come through strong with their quick chaning melodies and high energy delivery.
The boys are back!
This has me excited for a new album! I love the sound of the new songs.
About The Lemon Twigs
Channeling the Baroque rock of the '60s, Long Island brothers Brian and Michael D'Addario started the Lemon Twigs while they were still teenagers. Like their father, Ronnie D'Addario, the siblings played multiple instruments, counting guitar, keyboards, drums, horns, and strings on their list of proficiencies. In addition to Harry Nilsson, Todd Rundgren, Big Star, and Brian Wilson, the D'Addarios counted the Beatles, Wings, and the Zombies as major influences. Hints of contemporary artists like Sunflower Bean, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, and Methyl Ethel also come through on their debut single, "These Words" b/w "As Long as We're Together." The Lemon Twigs signed with 4AD in 2015 and released their debut, Do Hollywood, the following year. Produced by Foxygen's Jonathan Rado, Do Hollywood was supported by a tour that included Danny Ayala on keyboards and Megan Zeankowski on bass. The Lemon Twigs returned in September 2017 with Brothers of Destruction, a home-recorded EP written largely during the sessions for Do Hollywood and featuring a handful of live staples from their touring set. ~ Neil Z.
