Rating: ★★★[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/1"][vc_column_text]‘Down In Heaven’, the third effort from Chicago-based Twin Peaks, sees them approach their raw, DIY sound with a hark back to the Stones’ ‘Exile on Main St’, with its companioned vocals and natural blues aesthetic. The five piece have the sensibility to not lose any of the natural rawness that comes with being lo-fi, and instead build upon it with harmonies and choruses.

Opener ‘Walk To Love’ shows off this development in sound with the chorus utilising harmonised backing vocals while bar-style piano is occasionally dropped around fulfilling the sad imagery contained within the lyrics: “I will let you walk to the one you love”. ‘Wanted You’ continues this lovelorn attitude and timeless sound.

The quieter moments are tender and emotive, showing that they can go from righteous and riotous to cool, calm and almost collected. Twin Peaks have a solid foundation, and ‘Down In Heaven’ sees them continue on a streak that suggests they have the capacity to be bigger than they currently are.
