We’re excited to bring you another edition of YNFB. Today, our spotlight is on the band Twin Berlin. Hailing from Boston via Connecticut (I guess we could’ve said New England but we’re not Pats fans), the garage rock trio formed in 2009. If you listen to WFNX (great alternative rock station btw) up in Boston, you already know how great this band is and you’ve probably seen them countless times. We were introduced to the band after they won Guitar Center’s “Your Next Record” competition where they were personally selected as the winners by the one and only, Travis Barker. What did Twin Berlin win in this competition? A load of cash, brand new gear from Guitar Center and Travis Barker as their producer for an EP!
Why did Travis choose these guys? “What drew me to Twin Berlin was their song. It was really catchy and stuck with me.”
The resulting There Goes My Virtue EP is three songs of energetic rock that fuels your soul, pinches your neck, kicks your ass and says “you’re welcome!” To us, the band sounds like the Strokes’ Julian Casablancas channeling Social Distortion’s Mike Ness for the Strokes album Is This It?.
Enough of our babbling, take a listen to the EP below and go see these guys play live.
