Hair Panties: Twin Peaks Stops by CFUR
By Jon White, Multimedia Reporter
The band Twin Peaks recently stopped by the CFUR studio to chat with our DJ Jill, to talk about the upcoming tour, winning The Vancouver Island Music Award’s 'BC Wide Artist of the Year'. Twin Peaks was in town to headline for the Jezebel Jam that happened at The Art Space on 8 March 2014, in honor of International Women’s Day. They charmed the heck out of us and everyone else over the course of the day.
You can listen to the interview here:
Twin Peaks consists of Naomi Shore and Lindsay Pratt who are from Taylor and Ft. St. John British Columbia, respectively. Part of the bio on their website reads: "Rich harmonies, a piano, a guitar, two ukeleles and unlimited wit are at the heart of Twin Peaks - an emerging duo that embraces indie folk with undertones of country and contemporary blues. Naomi Shore and Lindsay Pratt - although very diverse in their musical histories - have successfully combined individual experiences into a unique blend of genres. It is eclectic, creative and clever. Born and raised in the northern BC community of Fort St. John, their music reflects small town wisdom with lively humour and tunes that immediately capture an audience."The music is an eclectic mix of genres, using various instruments like the ukulele, guitar, and piano. This duo likes to mix things up, as each song has a unique sound, making the album sound like a mash-up of styles. Make no mistake though, it does not sound jarring and one will soon find themselves singing along with the catchy lyrics.
Even though Twin Peaks is relatively new to the music scene, they are blazing a trail. An excerpt from their website reads: "Twin Peaks have been playing together for well over a year now. They have won Rockin' the Peace, dropped their first ep and played a summer 2012 tour through Alberta and British Columbia. They made the top ten for CBC Radio's contest Tracks on Tracks in 2012. They have individually and together opened for Steve Brockley, Peter Katz and most recently, Hey Ocean." They recently won The Vancouver Island Music Award’s 'BC Wide Artist of the Year'. They were also nominated for the Western Canadian Music Award for 'Roots Duo Recording of the Year'.
Twin Peaks continues to tour across Canada and has a new CD, entitled 'Trouble', coming out 3 May. You can preorder the album on their website: here.
