29 Feb RIPE TV – Twinsy

[youtube id=”tYr79OtMEjI” width=”600″ height=”350″]

Twinsy is the electro-supergroup comprising of Guy Chappell (Yacht Club DJs), Michael Belsar (Hunting Grounds) and Ajax (Under Your Sink / Bang Gang). Twinsy has just released their debut self-titled EP which features brand-spankin new tracks like the much anticipated single ‘Water Bombs’.

Ajax says their sound is hard to put your fingers on,  it’s “like Violent Femmes with a beat” – comprising of “euphoric breakdowns” which build up to swinging grooves.

THE RIPE’s Scott Armstrong chats to the eclectic bunch in their first exclusive interview on Ripe TV. Keep an ear-out for their full album and potentially a live show later in the year. In the meantime, check out the EP on Soundcloud (or stream below) and fan them up on facey.
