All Tvvins’ build-up ahead of the release of their second album ‘Just To Exist’ continues to gather momentum. Its first two singles, ‘Hell of a Party’ and ‘Infinite Swim’, have picked up radio support from 2FM, Radio X and Today FM together with a number of key playlists such as key playlists at Spotify (New Music Friday), Apple Music (Best of the Week) and Deezer (Brand New UK).
The duo’s next step comes with today’s release of their new single ‘Build A Bridge’. It’s a track which adds an inventive new touch to All Tvvins’ widescreen sound. It opens with an enticing vocal loop which gives the song an immediately irresistible edge before melding into the kind of bold hook in which the duo have forged their reputation. The production is full of leftfield, modernist elements while Conor Adams’ vocals possess an elegant phrasing which maximises its buoyantly optimistic vibe.
The track emerged when All Tvvins created a vocal loop that was too manic to use but too intriguing to ignore. After drastically dropping its BPM and lowering its pitch, it evolved into the central ‘Build A Bridge’ groove. The remainder of the song – produced by their friend and collaborator James Vincent McMorrow – was completed that same session
“It was a huge pay off when we figured it out,” says Lar Kaye, glowing at the memory. “All three of us knew we had something amazing.”
Conor’s lyrics were written to evoke an atmosphere rather than to make a specific statement. As he explains, “I wanted to convey the feeling when you’re driving out in the mountains with a summer evening sunset and anything seems possible.”
‘Build A Bridge’ is accompanied by another new track in the shape of ‘My Future’. An unclassifiable mix of off-kilter indie with sonic elements which recall the current Afrobeats scene, it shows that All Tvvins continue to be predictably unpredictable.
In addition to their latest tracks, All Tvvins have also been building up their live plot for 2019. They’ve confirmed their biggest headline show to date at Dublin’s National Stadium, which will be the first time in years that the venue has included a standing area for a gig. The show features special guest Sorcha Richardson, who contributes vocals to their forthcoming album track ‘No One Is Any Fun’.
They’re also confirmed for a headline European tour in May, huge sold-out outdoor show at the Irish Independent Park with The Coronas and Sigrid, as well as the Indie 19 Festival which will be headlined by Biffy Clyro and Bastille.
Their tour dates are:
13th – Dublin, Ireland, National Stadium (Headline)
22nd – Cork, Irish Independent Park (with The Coronas and Sigrid)
2nd – 4th – Cork, Indie 19 (headlined by Biffy Clyro and Bastille)
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.
