All Tvvins Return with ‘Hell Of A Party’

All Tvvins enjoyed a phenomenal start to their career. Their debut album ‘IIVV’ shot into the Irish charts at #2, earned a Choice Music Prize nomination for Irish Album of the Year and smashed the 15 million streams landmark. Meanwhile, gigs in the UK and Ireland included a life-affirming sold-out show at Dublin’s historic Olympia Theatre as well as a tour as guests to Metric.

Now the duo – Conor Adams and Lar Kaye – commence the second chapter their career by sharing the new single ‘Hell of a Party’. The track is the first from their second album ‘Just To Exist’ which will be released early next year.

Possessing an ominously seductive atmosphere with funk flavouring and Adams’ most soulful vocals to date, ‘Hell of a Party’ represents an organic evolution in the All Tvvins sound. It offers a taster of what to expect from ‘Just To Exist’, an album that clearly expands upon the variety and quality that they demonstrated with their debut.

“We tried to capture that atmosphere in the song’s lyrics too,” says Adams. “To say it’s a hell of a party is a pretty ballsy thing to say, and very cocksure. But in the context of the song, it means something very different. It’s a hell of a party.”

After releasing ‘IIVV’, All Tvvins built on their momentum by dropping three new tracks in quick succession in the shape of ‘Alone Together’ (featuring James Vincent McMorrow), ‘Anything’ and ‘Crash’. But by the winter of 2017, however, their ideas simply weren’t flowing and their confidence was low. As Kaye recalls, “We were questioning the whole thing. Is it worth exploring more? Or do we not do it anymore?”

Salvation came in the shape of an invite from McMorrow to work on a new track. The trio created ‘Hell of a Party’ over the course of a two-day session and that set them firmly back on track. They spent January and February of this year recording the album, with the work ethic of producer, co-writer and effective third member McMorrow vital to their resurgence. They’d rediscovered the pure joy of making music and were rewarded with their best material yet.

The end result is ‘Just To Exist’, which Adams describes as “a snapshot of where we were, what we were going through and where we hope to go next.” The title, adds Kaye, represents “an acceptance of what we had to go through” to make All Tvvins 2.0 not only exist, but to once again thrive. Adversity, it seems, is a potent inspiration.
