The Other Twin Peaks

7 Dec

With its ethereal beginnings, giving off a fanciful vibe, Twin Peaks set the 60’s throwback mood to its tune “Mirror Of Time.” Once the song really starts to move, with a jangle and sway of the guitar and drums keeping perfect dance rhythm, the 60’s sound comes into full view.

The repeating hook has an eerily similar feel to Tommy James and the Shondells hit “Crimson And Clover”  albeit at a more rock n’ roll, merseybeat, pace. The melody at times matches “Crimson and Clover” beat for beat, but this Chicago based group bring more of a raw garage sound to the track than polished, creating a modern feel.

The guitars and vocals are fuzzy and hazy which add to the natural unearthed sound of Twin Peaks. “Mirror Of Time” sounds almost authentically 60’s, but its lo-fi qualities propel the tune into the modern world of music.

But make no mistake, “Mirror Of Time” has a universal appeal in that no matter what era the track evokes, it is over two minutes of foot tapping, body swaying, music.

This relatively new band is a force to be reckoned with as their latest album Wild Onion was recently named by NME magazine as one of the top 50 albums of 2014.

If you like what you hear in “Mirror Of Time” give the band a good listening to.
