The Lemon Twigs

What is more exciting than picking up bands at an early stage ? When first demos get released, when first EPs are spread all over the internet hoping that a small label will noticed them, or that a bigger one – for the luckiest ones – will approach them. What if The Lemon Twigs was instantly becoming your new favourite band?

It’s kind of a gift when someone offers you to listen to some marvelous demos recorded somewhere in Los Angeles.
It’s also kind of a torture when those demos are so beautiful that that someone ends up bursting into tears in front of you and that you have to wait, and wait and wait for way too long before you can share those tracks yourself.

That’s what happened with The Lemon Twigs, a young band from Hicksville, Long Island, fronted by two brothers: Brian and Michal D’Addario, a powerhouse of two virtuosos experiencing everything since their youngest age : drums at 5, guitar at 7, parts in Broadway musicals or in TV shows.
In Europe we’ll have to wait a little more to enjoy their amazing talent, but you can already listen to their brand new single in which the sweetest of melodies that reminds me of the Beatles are meeting the soft psyche craziness of Foxygen.

And it’s certainly not a coincidence that the siblings are well surrounded: when they released their debut album, ‘What We Know’, in 2014, they were already opening for Foxygen and Jonathan Rado just recorded their new album that should be release next fall.
