Single Twin – ‘Came Home Dead’ (mp3)
I previously covered the track ‘My Silken Tooth‘ by Melbourne singer-songwriter Single Twin (Marcus Teague to his mother) when it was sent to me after being written and recorded in a single night. That track has now made its way onto Single Twin’s first official release, a six-track EP now available through iTunes and is being launched this weekend in both Melbourne and Sydney.
The above track, ‘Came Home Dead,’ is not only the lead track on the EP but it also set to appear on Teague’s debut long-player under the Single Twin moniker early next year (he also pulls time in Deloris). Like other Single Twin songs, it’s a mostly acoustic, narrative-driven affair, recorded and mixed entirely in his bedroom on Garageband. That said, the arrangement and sound quality in general are more subtle and dynamic than these conditions might suggest, while his lyrics are also more affecting than your average local troubadour.
Single Twin launches the EP this weekend with band in Melbourne and Sydney, at a couple of off the map warehouse shows. Friday 18th December at 188 Christmas Street, Fairfield in Melbourne with guests Denim Owl, and Saturday 19th December Suite 303, 271 Cleveland St, Surry Hills in Sydney. Doors for shows start at 8.30pm.
