Listen: New Twerps
News posted Friday, August 24 2012 at 08:00 AM.
Ahead of their first headlining tour of the US, breakout Melbourne band Twerps have shared the new tune 'He's In Stock'. The melody-sloshed winner is the B-side of a 7" coming out via Chapter Music/Underwater Peoples on Sept. 17 (digitally) and Oct. 23 (physically), with the A-side 'Work It Out' and another B-side, 'Recall'. It's short and (bitter)sweet, with breezy talk of drugs being dropped off and mothers "giving me the shits nonstop." It's also, with Twerps' trademark casual cool, one of the best things they've done yet.
The band sold out gigs in Melbourne and Sydney early this month and have been announced for this year's Meredith. Before heading to the US in October, they're playing Newcastle's Sound Summit and the Brisbane Festival in September as well as hitting the Beach Road Hotel in Bondi on Sept. 12 with Melodie Nelson and Day Ravies. Last year's self-titled LP came in at #10 in our annual Critics Poll.
