Introducing Twin Diver, the post-punk duo from Meath, a town a little north of Dublin. If all thing’s had gone as planned last year, the pair would be rocking around the streets of London, but alas their short move to England’s capital was cut short when the world closed down in a couple of weeks. Back in Ireland, Twin Diver has been reflected on their new circumstances and after being temporarily stranded with a only a bass guitar and midi controller, a new sound emerged.
Listening to their single ‘Television’, there’s a notable sense of desolation, one that wrestles with the bands unbroken determination to make music at all costs.
“The track delves into how people want to feel special and the pursuit of that feeling. I think everyone has a strange thought process around needing to feel important, almost a case of not caring what people think of you as long as it’s you they’re thinking of. As people in general, we have a very precarious sense of self.”
This theme has an air of the New Romantics about it, one that seems aptly resurrects as we’re still been forced to question our place in this fractured world.
