Twin Rains take the sounds of pop to extreme places on their debut album, Automatic Hands. But not extreme in a loud or heavy way; instead, they go the other direction. They’ve been called “dream pop,” if that’s any indication as to what their sound is like. And it makes sense that they want to […]
