Omaha, NE psych-pop rockers Twinsmith are in the midst of a busy summer. On May 4th, they dropped Alligator Years, their latest LP out via Saddle Creek, and are gearing up to mid-west tour. When I first hit click on their latest effort, I said “Heck,” except I didn’t actually say that,” they would do well on a tour with Reptar. Lo and behold if you check out their upcoming dates below.
The strength of Alligator Years is the individual personalities of each track which when viewed from above, form a sonic narrative of twenty something anxiety that warrants more than one listen. One such track, standout “Said and Done,” now receives the full video treatment with a creepy horror movie unfurling and juxtaposed with Twinsmith’s whip smart psych-pop sound.
Watch Twinsmith in “Said and Done” and peep those aforementioned tour dates below.
