Focus Tracks: 1 & 4
Format: College & Modern Rock Specialty
Artist Info: Fauna Twin—the latest, exciting addition to the Crammed roster— are Parisian singer-songwriter Claire Jacquemard & North Wales’ Owain Ginsberg (leader of Hippies Vs Ghosts and We Are Animal). They’ve just put the finishing touch to their debut EP, the epic The Hydra EP, which will be out in October with a string of shows around Europe. Fauna Twin’s debut album is scheduled for release in 2017.
Towards the end of last year, the band have circulated a couple of unfinished tracks which have elicited great reactions from the BBC6 and several online media across the UK, US and Canada, all obviously intoxicated by Fauna Twin’s melodies, atmospheres and dramatic percussions, and by the beauty of Claire’s voice.
This is how Fauna Twin describe their own music: “our influences are a massive tornado of different styles, from Queen to King Crimson, crossing by PJ Harvey, Fiona Apple via R. Stevie Moore to Radiohead. This leads us to a chameleon church with no god, where we commit everyday. Fauna Twin’s music turns into a kind of hybrid shoegazish-drama-pop with a special appeal for textures, structures and constructed rhythm sections.”
