Dead Rose, the debut album from NYC-based band The Twin, was born from the loss of the ever-so-addictive and wildly unpredictable drug called Love.
Singer/songwriter, Bryan Louie (Joshua Fit For Battle, Verses Narrow, Heavy Vessel), penned the eight tracks as he was going through a lengthy, drawn-out breakup from a long-term partner. The album reflects the emotions he felt and packages them into songs that resemble withdrawal.
Initially written as acoustic songs, Bryan quickly realized that in order to give the sentiment in the tracks justice, he would need a band. At a mutual friend's show in Brooklyn, Bryan ran into drummer Jeff Gensterblum (Small Brown Bike, Able Baker Fox, LaPeche) and he signed on to help flesh out the songs. A few practices and many pool games later, bassist Eric Odness (Ageist, Chariots, Primitive Weapons), was asked to join to round out the group.
In October 2019, the band traveled to the wonderful “liberal pour” city of Baltimore to record with legend J Robbins at his Magpie Cage studio. With J's expertise, the songs reached their full potential and the heartbreak was cemented into the album Dead Rose.
