The Twang

By on Monday, 4th June 2007 at 11:22 pm

The Twang - Love it when it feels like this

“It’s in his nature, his behaviour, his misdemeanour” Phil Etheridge sings in “Two Lovers”. For the Twang it seems it really is about their behaviour, with their whole album a testament to their laddish nature. And it’s all the better for it.

Cheeky, distinctly Northern, and full of language that would make your Gran blush, “Love it When I Feel Like This” is looking set to be one of the strongest debut albums released so far this year.

The two singles to date from the album, “Wide Awake” and “Either Way” are each standout singles in their own right, and are perfect examples of the standard of tracks on the album. “The Neighbour” is surely single material, showing off their humour and storytelling skills simultaneously: “so I was just settling into the party, when there was a knock at the door, it was that fuckin neighbour going ‘turn down your tunes or you’ll end up on the floor'”

Reminiscent of early Oasis with the swagger, with elements of The Coral and Arctic Monkeys added for good measure, they get the perfect mix of sensitive songs (“Two Lovers”, “Reap What You Sow”) and plain and simple football ground anthems (“Wide Awake” and “Push The Ghosts”), The Twang are one of this year’s brightest new bands.
