TWIN STRANGER -Tears Of Joy

Twin Stranger is a power-pop project led by Welsh singer and multi-instrumentalist Alex McConnachie. The band's sound is a mix of hooky bass-driven pop melodies, synth freak-outs and dreamy guitar soundscapes. 

Initially a bedroom recording project, McConnachie enlisted his multi-instrumentalist brother Liam as well as friends, bassist Josh Newington, Joe Tobin on keyboards and drummer Eric Karvik.

With influences ranging from the seventies power pop of Big Star to the nineties avant-pop of Stereolab, Twin Stranger also draw upon the likes of Sonic Youth, Yo La Tengo and Pavement. Having organically evolved into a full live band following a successful string of shows across South Wales and the South West, Twin Stranger's debut single Tears of Joy released in February 2020.

Speaking of the track Alex McConnachie says:
Tears of Joy was written from the point of view of a couple in the not so distant future, looking through a scrapbook of their lives with fond but hazy distant memories of first loves and exploring the world together. It’s about not taking things for granted, what might seem like the mundane 9-5 grind now, could turn out to be some of the best moments of your life. It’s about not wishing those moments away.

The track revolves around a driving kraut-rock rhythm track, hypnotic droning organ, melodic, mesmerizing singsong vocals, wrapped in a fuzzy blanket of guitars.  

Tears of Joy was produced at McConnachie’s home studio, with additional recording and production duties by Todd Campbell at Stompbox studios in South Wales.
