Twin Atlantic announce intimate shows for album launch

Twin Atlantic

Following the release of their spectacular new single ‘Barcelona’, Twin Atlantic have announced that they will play a string of special UK album launch shows in January in the lead up to the release of their fourth album.

The Scottish indie rock trio will share LP Power into the world on January 24th with nine special intimate shows, starting with Banquet Records in Kingston (Jan 23rd) and ending at The Caves in Edinburgh (Feb 2nd).

Latest single ‘Barcelona’ is a swelling mixture of emotion and colour which is as pulsating as it is anthemic.

Speaking on the themes of the track, frontman Sam McTrusty commented: “This is a love song about being in a film loop – a kaleidoscope of ideas and memories and the first song I’ve tried to write in a vignette style like this.

“It’s inspired by the unusual arpeggio mono synth part we fell in love with at the opening of the track. It sounds like a mistake and reminded me of when you would see old movie projector reels glitch and fail. It’s romantic and cinematic. It makes fun of love but also puts it up high on a pedestal.”

Tapping into their LCD Soundsystem fandom, and acknowledging the influence of Depeche Mode, the new album Power is eight punchy tracks and two compelling interludes. No fat, no fuss, all fire, made by a band plugging in, turning it up and taking charge. The message: here are their new songs, take them – and the band – as you find them.

After ten years, Twin Atlantic got their Glasgow studio fully up-and-running. They gigged for thrills, and used the money to fund the album they wanted to make. They took charge of production. And only then, when all that was done and dusted, did they sign a new record deal. Yes, they had to do everything themselves – and they’d have had it no other way.
