According to Last.fm, there was a Twin Sister from Portland, Oregon that was a “…rock/funk band based in the Portland, Oregon area in the 90’s. Their lyrics quoted and referenced the Star Wars movie series and they often performed in concert in various Star Wars costumes.” Well, I don’t know what that particular Twin Sister sounded like, but the Long Island originating Twin Sister just announced their debut full-length In Heaven that will be released on Domino Records and the new lead single “Bad Street” which has a pretty funky with a bit of rock sound to it. Much cleaner than the tracks from their Color Your Life EP and much more funky, it still contains the chilled out retro vibe Twin Sister culminated in their Long Island bedrooms. The album will be released September 27th, 2011.
On top of the debut full-length on Domino Records, the band will also be back on the road. Some of the dates will include performances with Beirut, Allo’ Darlin and Wild Nothing.
