THE TWOKS – Thursday 7th November


  • Date: Thursday 7th November
  • Tickets: $5
  • Links:

Xani Kolac (violin/vocals) + Mark Leahy (drums).

Melbourne art-popsters The Twoks are taking their violin & drums on the road in November to champion the release of their dark new single, Sailor.

Following up from an ambitious instrumental LP Sailing Away released earlier in 2013, Sailor retains the nautical theme but steers them back into more definitive ‘pop’ waters with the return of Xani Kolac’s charming vocals.

…the band is currently in New York putting the finishing touches on Sailor while also taking in the sounds of the CMJ music marathon. They will return bearing new material and wondrous experiences, no doubt eager to share them with audiences around the country.

Onstage The Twoks’ dark, melodic dance music swells and crashes with epic impact. The grandiose layers of Xani Kolac’s violin soaring over Mark Leahy’s propulsive groove lands them somewhere between The Dirty Three and Goldfrapp. It’s a sound that has captured the attention of DARK MOFO (2013), St Kilda Festival (2013), Brunswick Music Festival (2013), Woodford Folk Festival (2012), Edinburgh Fringe (2011), Adelaide Fringe (2008-2012), and a recent show-stopper at Wave Rock Festival in WA.

‘Sailor’ will be released on Wed Oct 30th.
