It has been a busy time for Melbourne’s Twin Beasts (formerly The Toot Toot Toots). In the past year they have played at Victoria’s Meredith Music Festival, at Western Australia’s Rock It Festival, at the inaugural White Night Melbourne Festival and to a sold out crowd for their season at Melbourne’s Spiegeltent. In 2012 they released their debut album, Outlaws, which was awarded ABC Radio National Album of the Week. Most recently they recorded their sophomore album, Badlove, with ARIA nominated producer Burke Reid (The Drones, Oh Mercy, Gerling) due to be released in February, 2014.
Entertainment available for hire, based in Victoria
Inspired by artists as diverse as Beck, Bob Dylan, and ELO, Twin Beasts have been compared with the likes of Tom Waits, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, and Ennio Morricone. They have made a name for themselves with their hyper-energetic live shows and boisterous, romping music. Kinch Kinski of Unpaved said of their live show; “They intertwine intelligent, conceptual songwriting with big hooks, hilarity and spectacle… get along to a show and let them weave strange worlds before your eyes.”
