TWIN LAKES

Hailing from Sydney and Newcastle, five-membered band Twin Lakes can finally announce the release of their debut video for their first single Glacier.

After the release in July, the single gained rotation on Triple J and Rage and has given the band a name for their “absorbing volume of emotional depth.”

This depth can now be visualised with their brand new hallucinogenic music video written and directed by Australian actor Richard Wilson (AACTA/AFI award winner).

Frontman Eddie Garven says, “Glacier was written about the darkness of depression.”

Dealing with dread and depression, Wilson has created a screenplay that illustrates the dangers when the pressure builds up from the various social structures in one’s life.

“It is based around the idea that no mater how hard it gets, there is always someone or something you can turn to.”

Twin Lakes’ music has been compared to that of The Dears, Silversun Pickups, Bon Iver and Midlake. Touring the east coast with their indie-rock, the boys have captivated the hearts of Australian’s and have subsequently announced more dates for their tour, which now includes The Standard. (TO)
