LATEST MUSIC FROM BLOWTORCH RECORDS
A DIGITAL LABEL FOR UNSIGNED BANDS
A big Blowtorch welcome to our latest artist, concrete twin. This Tokyo-based 4-piece deliver a huge wall of sound backed by trip-hop beats and with ethereal melodies floating over it all like a surfer riding a shifting ocean. Think My Bloody Valentine meet Cocteau Twins but even better give them a listen. Our track of the week is 'egyptian dreams' which starts with a sample of the massive drum intro from Led Zeppelin's When The Levee Breaks and builds from there. Glorious.
Many thanks to Turnstiles' 4-string hero and writer Jake Tiernan for his new article detailing 5 key Irish bands at the forefront of Ireland's recent post-punk revival: Fontaines DC, Just Mustard, Silverbacks, Pillow Queens and Girl Band. As with most lists (c.f. The Irish Times' 50 greatest albums list), there was an outcry on social media as fans and critics bemoaned the exclusion of Thumper, The Murder Capital or Odd Morris. That's lists for you.
We're delighted to welcome our latest addition to the Blowtorch roster. concrete twin are a Tokyo-based 4-piece who deliver a huge wall of sound backed by trip-hop beats and with ethereal melodies floating over it all like a surfer riding a shifting ocean.
The simply beautiful new single from recent Blowtorch recruit Dillon Salvi is out now. Available on Spotify and other streaming services, it's a meditative mix of Richard Hawley and Nick Drake. I urge you to listen.
