Captivating audiences by Rivers and Roads for the past 10 years TWIN have developed a sound unto themselves ranging from deeply engaging folk story telling to heavy hitting punk anthems and everything in between. Performances swing from sweet to savage AF embodying a heaviness that is hard to shake but still cathartic. TWIN strikes at the core of human experience stringing together proverbial tunes about life, death and love. Dark Earth Folk for the Decomposing Soul.
