'Lighthearted in sound, yet powerful in lyrical content, “Louder” is an anthem for all the women in the music industry who have been overlooked, disrespected or ignored'
Synth-pop trio Twist Helix return with the release of their effervescent new single Louder, out on 28th February 2020 via Paul Back Music.
Not afraid to push boundaries, Louder once again showcases Twist Helix’s unique ability to create synth-heavy soundscapes that feel beguilingly cutting edge. Reminiscent of the likes of Depeche Mode and New Order, Louder is a euphoric offering that fits perfectly with front woman Bea Garcia’s undeniably arresting vocals. Talking about the single, the band elaborate, "Louder is about our frustrations with the industry. It’s our response to the pressure to always toe someone else’s line and to never speak out for fear of causing offence. This song goes out to anyone who has had to bite their tongue and put up with someone else’s conceited attitude… which is about 48% of the country right now.”
Originally hailing from Alicante and Newcastle, Twist Helix are Bea Garcia, James Walker and Matthew Barron. The band’s debut album Ouseburn in 2018, received praise from the likes of PRS’ M Magazine, With Guitars and NARC Magazine. Since Ouseburn’s release, the group’s intelligent, narrative driven synth-pop and relentless DIY work ethic has seen the band tour extensively across the UK and Garcia’s Spanish homeland, including festival appearances at Stockton Calling, the Hanwell Hootie and Blackthorn Festival.
Louder - taken from Twist Helix’s upcoming sophomore LP, was released on 28th February 2020 via Paul Back Music.
