EDITORS’ NOTES

Deemed buzzworthy on the strength of their 2010 single "All Around and Away We Go," Mr. Twin Sister (which added the "Mr." for this record) both build on and distance themselves from that term here. The band's brooding, lascivious post-disco grooves come into sharp focus here, with vocalist Andrea Estella channeling Dusty Springfield circa The Look of Love. "In the House of Yes" is churning yet inviting house, and "Out of the Dark" pulses with a dark, industrial feel. "Rude Boy" is atmospheric funk. Distinctly cosmopolitan, Mr. Twin Sister is an after-hours soundtrack for half-remembered adventures.

About Mr Twin Sister

Formerly known as Twin Sister, Long Island, New York's Mr Twin Sister make music that is dreamy, yet danceable. The five members of the group -- vocalist Andrea Estella, bassist Gabe D'Amico, drummer Bryan Ujueta, keyboardist Dev "Udbhav" Gupta, and guitarist/vocalist Eric Cardona -- crossed paths while playing in their respective bands, ultimately befriending each other and forming Twin Sister in 2008. Their first EP, Vampires with Dreaming Kids, was self-released that year. After their first live show out of town, at SXSW, they toured with tUnE-YarDs and Xiu Xiu before putting the final touches on their second EP, Color Your Life, which followed in 2010. In 2011, Twin Sister signed to Domino Records and released their first full-length, In Heaven, that September. The group underwent some drastic changes in 2013: not only did Twin Sister part ways with Domino, but Estella was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, and a car crash while on tour in Tallahassee, Florida left them lucky to be alive. After taking time to recover, the quintet recorded its second album with the help of producer Jon Low and members of Ava Luna, and rechristened themselves Mr Twin Sister. Their darker, electronics-driven self-titled second album arrived in September 2014. ~ Jason Lymangrover
