Twist: Can't Wait

Twist - “Can’t Wait” (Buzz Records): Toronto label Buzz has been living up to its name by putting out records that have almost invariably drawn rave reviews (Dilly Dally, Weaves, Greys). Their latest fresh contender, Twist, released debut album Spectral on Friday, and it’s a bona fide winner. This focus track introduces the band’s sound, a beguiling mix of melody and noise that reminds us a little of Alvvays. Spin loves the track, writing that "Soaked in reverb and echo, “Can’t Wait” shimmers like all surf-pop should. Its catchy chorus, belted with a rejuvenated voice, is certainly the highlight, and the whole song should be earmarked for your “Songs of the Summer” playlist."

Driving force and singer Laura Hermiston notes in a press release that “the project grew from just me with help from Brian Borcherdt  to having a full band and bringing various collaborators on board, and that's, in part, why I decided to call the album Spectral -- it presents a spectrum of personal and musical experience." 

Twist has just started a North American tour that includes shows in Victoria, Calgary, Regina, Winnipeg and Toronto. Dates here
