Needle Drop: Twist, “Slums And Seaports”

Ever wonder what a collaboration between Nancy Sinatra and Ty Segall might sound like?

Twist is the musical partnership between singer Laura Hermiston and producer Brian Borcherdt (best known as a member of the Canadian electronic band Holy Fuck). The band has slowly been releasing music throughout 2013, culminating in the single “Slums And Seaports” which plays like a minted garage nugget—raved up ’60s pop rock and injected with a hardy dose of shoegaze.

The interplanetary Western vibes of the single lock in well with the latent distorted rhythm track, making for a blistering, psychedelic second half. The tension builds to an almost excruciating climax while Hermiston’s vocals remain as tranquil as a summer stroll. A strange sonic dichotomy that the song’s title seems to hint at.
