Lockdown has led many musicians to deliver more introspective works, this Glasgow-based composer included.
Twynholm was previously of a more ‘pop’ disposition, including a spell with Belle and Sebastian’s Stuart David as part of Looper. However, that act’s music featured in several blockbuster movies, so this move to more atmospheric material is no surprise.
Including Placebo’s Fiona Brice on violin, the 10 tracks here, Twynholm says, began as more of an experiment in sound, but clearly his pop sensibilities took over with beautiful pastoral melodies coming to the fore.
Evoking Debussy and Michael Nyman, fans of his ‘rock’ contemporaries like Thom Yorke and even Mogwai will enjoy chilling out, with this as the soundtrack.
