Twisted Wires - Half Lives
The hidden gem of the new After Dark compilation, is this dark-haus track from Twisted Wires. TW, a mysterious Johnny Jewel affiliate and apparent one song pony, cloak themselves in a brooding goth-disco, post-punk, New Romantics sound. The track opens with bouncing piano chords and soon morphs into a jagged chunk of glowing aggro-crag. Its the only song on the most recent Italians Do It Better comp to feature male vocals and it comes as a refreshing break from the chirping, angelic female vocals that dominate most of this record. Take a listen to this one, and find out why some wires are better left twisted!!!!!!!!!!
