Peak Twins, “Only Sun”

This Melbourne outfit recently released a split LP on Night-People records, a split with another group called Scott & Charlene's Wedding. They are the latest in the wave of jangly pop bands coming out of down-under, including the Twerps and Terror of the Deep (neither of whom are from Melbourne, but they've probably visited!). There is definitely a Southern Hemisphere sound bubbling to the surface, with these pop groups all sharing an affinity for sweet guitar lines, blissed vocal harmonies, and a beachy feel. It makes sense that the pop world of Southern California would have migrated to the other side of the world, but that doesn't mean we saw it being so enveloping or engrossing.
