Melbourne’s Twerps to release new album on Merge Records

The Johann Rashid-directed music video for ‘Back To You’, which premiered on Fader, captures Twerps and their radiant local surroundings with a romantic sensibility. The track “recalls the steady, sunny momentum of obvious guitar-pop forebearers like The Chills and The Feelies. “ (Fader)

‘Back to You’ has a vibrant and lighthearted way of addressing the relationship between insecurity and desire. Singer, Martin Frawley contemplates being tied down, letting the listener decide what exactly he’s tethered to.

Twerps will release their debut full-length for Merge entitled, Range Anxiety, on 2nd February 2015 in Europe.

Formed in Melbourne in late 2008, Twerps enjoyed immediate success, releasing a series of vinyl singles and cassettes on various labels around the world. The release of their 2011 self-titled debut album led to appearances at SXSW and CMJ and tours with Real Estate, Mac DeMarco, and others. Not wanting to wait until 2015 to unleash new songs on present and future fans, Twerps quickly recorded the delightful Underlay EP, which Pitchfork described as “songs fraught with universal, emotionally familiar sentiments.”

Twerps are Martin Frawley (guitar, vocals); Rick Milovanovic (bass, vocals, synthesizer); Alex Macfarlane (drums, guitar, vocals); and Julia McFarlane (guitar, vocals, keyboards).
