Listen: Twyaen – “Keep On Waiting”

5 Aug


It’s Monday, no-one really likes Mondays no matter how much they try to convince themselves otherwise. So, how about we get over this grumpy feeling by starting the week with something completely new, and really rather beautiful?

We know little about the mysterious duo know as Twyaen (not to be confused with Tywin, Game of Thrones fans) beyond what they have told us themselves. We do know that they are pretty darn new though, they only created their Facebook page (the marker against which all band ages are surely measured) last week, so this is your chance to get in before the ground floor has even been built.

The pair, who claim to be from the ‘welsh parts of England’, have code-named themselves ThutDragon and Moors Trekkah, and yes, our ‘piss-take-o-tometer’ was flashing bright red and wailing out an alarm at this point. But we had already hit play on the Soundcloud link by then and soon we found ourselves hitting play again, and again, and again.

“Keep On Waiting” is a song of simple elegance and mellifluous charms. It takes jazz elements, down-tempo electronic, pop and R’n’B and blends them into one moment of sensitivity, pain and misplaced optimism. Xylophonic touches illuminate the blurred vision of an early winter mist amongst the footprints-in-the-snow-crispness of the electronic beat below. It’s a gentile tune but soaked in heartbreak. Captivating in its simplicity, an icicle melting in the winter sun, like a love so beautiful and then over, as if it never was at all.

Take a listen to “Keep On Waiting” below and Monday will start to feel a little less stressful and look a lot more beautiful, honestly.
