Twerps – Dreamin (taken from “Twerps”)


After several releases of 7″s/cassettes through several labels like Chapter Music, Night People, Olde English Spelling Bee, Group Tightener and their bandcamp, Melbourme’s jangly-pop foursome, Twerps has their self-titled debut full-length album. “Twerps” was recorded in a bona fide studio, with the help of engineer Jack Farley (Beaches, St Helens). Out on October 18th via Underwater Peoples / October 14th via Chapter Music.

Twerps consist of guitarist/vocalist Marty Frawley (son of much-missed Paul Kelly & the Dots member Maurice Frawley), bassist Rick Milovanovic (Boomgates), guitarist Julia MacFarlane (ex Batrider) and drummer Patrick O’Neill.

Panel of Judges – Coconut Trees

Taken from the latest album “Moods On The Move” (Mistletone) by Melbourne’s Panel of Judges, the band features Martin Frawley.


After releases with both Night People and Chapter Music, Australia’s Twerps bring their dark dream-pop to Brooklyn label Group Tightener. This three song 7-inch (She Didn’t Know / Anything New / Peculiar) works as a companion piece (same art split into two) to their recently released 7-inch on Under Water Peoples.  

Recorded By Mikey Young, Marty Frawley – Vox & Guitar, Julia McFarlane – Guitar, Rick Milovanovic – Bass, Patrick O’Neill – Drums, Dion Nania – Casio.  Limited to 500.

Twerps


Twerps, performing ‘Another One”.

Forming late 2008 around charismatic guitarist/vocalist Marty Frawley and bassist Rick Milovanovic, the Twerps have quickly risen to become one of Melbourne’s favourite pop bands. They’ve recently scored support slots for the likes of Deerhunter and the Bats, with shows coming up in December supporting California’s The Oh Sees. They play their own brand of warm and incredibly infectious pop, with elements of the 80s Flying Nun sound and 90s lo-fi. (Chapter Music) MySpace>>
