We Are Twin Covers Drake, Indie Rock style
We Are Twin has been bringing joy to our ears since 2009. Germany-raised Sri Lankan multi-instrumentalist and producer Nicolas Balachandran met lifelong New Yorker singer songwriter Gabi Christine during a 2009 songwriting session. After that first meeting, they had fifteen songs. Currently based out of LA, they use mostly live instrumentation, but also synths and in-the-box production, and apparently cover Drake songs, which Drake really should pay them a lot of money to do. Nicolas has said “Although the instrumentation is very rock ‘n’ roll with synthesizers and guitars, we try to create moments that feel like you’re listening to a symphony. At the same time, we won’t record a song unless we can sit down with acoustic guitars and coerce a timeless feeling from it.” And hot damn, they deliver. Overdriven guitars, bluesy playing, sexy & strong vocals, and all from a Drake song. My hat is off to you, We Are Twin.
