Twin Princess

Twin Princess

Hidden Agenda

Psychedelic shoegazing distorted melodies move through the speakers. This twists into a meandering almost electronic ambient sounding pop song, and from there into a smooth French pop touched melodic offering of beauty. Female vocals float over starry guitars and steady backbone of bass and drums. Ken Stringfellow (Posies) is one half of these twin princesses, but the other half looks nothing like him, and she sounds nothing like him either. She curves the guitar against his rhythms and moves her voice soft and jagged between worlds.
