Brussels avant-pop duo Twin Toes return with an irreverent slice of sophisticated alt-pop on ‘Ghost Hair’, lifted from their forthcoming debut album due this October through Capitane Records.
Following on from the band’s acclaimed debut ‘Lost In Playlists’, ‘Ghost Hair’, continues Twin Toes unique musical evolution, offering a multi-genre often intrinsic approach to song craft, peppered with ff-beat, wry lyricism.
The band say: “This new single is a true gem of bedroom pop that will especially resonate with anyone who’s ever lost one’s hair. ‘Ghost Hair’ is a letter that Antoine (the less hairy member of Twin Toes) writes to his beautiful hair, gone too soon. The writing and recording of ‘Ghost Hair’ allows us to discover our particular sound in the early days of our artistic process – that clever mix of organic and synthetic textures that would go on to serve us so well.”
They go on to add: “The clip that accompanies the song was directed by our friend Simon Vanrie, who could be called the third member of Twin Toes since our inception. The concept of the video is to follow Antoine’s phantom hair to its unknown destination.”
Twin Toes’ album ‘Long Story Short’ brings together ten tracks whose stories evoke the worlds of both Wes Anderson and Michel Gondry. Their songs paint multicoloured and surreal scenes drawn from a sense of the absurdity of life. The entirety of ‘Long Story Short’ was recorded in a small room in Brussels and mixed by producer Pieterjan Coppejans at Robot Studios in Ghent, Belgium.
About Twin Toes:
It all started on a Monday morning in January 2019, when Antoine invited Nicolas to his home studio in Brussels. Forty-eight hours earlier and seventy-five miles from each other, by coincidence, they broke the same index toe of their left foot. Having discussed few days earlier about making a band together, this sign of the Universe convinced them to start for real.
Twin Toes is a chain of happy accidents and simultaneity. A joke that took the form of a pop duo. Their songs bring a multicoloured and surrealistic atmosphere, reminding somehow of the beauty of dried sausages and the absurdity of existence. They may well be the pioneers of a new avant-garde genre, the “foot pop”.
