Twang @ Lab!

 

We got some news: even though we’ve been silent these days, we are producing now more than ever. We are working hard on both our 2nd music video from the EP “Nulla si può controllare” and our next big project, which is the debut LP. But that doesn’t mean we forgot our audience. We’re coming back!

We’ll be playing on the 27th of February in Piazza Vittorio Veneto 13, Turin, where we’ll get to show you some new songs.

See you there! 🙂

Tour Music Fest: thanks to everyone!

 

 

On November 11th , we performed on the stage of the Jailbreak Live Club in Rome, Italy, as contestants for the TMF semi-final. The stage was impressive, we got to play side to side with great musicians from all over Italy, and eventually became good friends with each other.

Sadly, we did NOT make it to the finals, but it’s been an unforgettable experience. It tired us out but also inspired us. We also got ourselves a little trip to Rome, it seemed fair.

Finally, we want to thank the TMF staff for their great willingness, as well as all those who sustained and encouraged us in the last few months, and we wish best of luck to the four artist that made it to the final match. They’ll walk the stage of the PIPER CLUB on the 24th of November.

Twang live @ Tour Music Fest 2017, Rome

 

 

 

We proudely announce you, our warm audience, our selection to the TMF semi-final phase! To prove that, here’s what the organisers of the contest say about us:

Twang, a talented band from Turin up for the festival chaired by Mogol, accepted to the next “match” of the 10th edition of TMF.

They’re ecletics, original, but most of all they have talent: in the last 6 months, Twang convinced our picky jury through their rock. That’s why they fully deserve a spot in the semi-final phase, which will take place on the 11th of November 2017 at the Jailbreak Live Club. (read more)…

Interview from Traks webzine

“Five guys from Turin. A promising start, which raises the expectations: Twang put on the table a lot of inspired ideas. Maybe next time they’ ll refine some little detail, especially those concerning arrangement and production, but besides that, the bases on which to work are really well covered already.”

It seems like Traks webzine was sincerely impressed by our first work “Nulla si può controllare”.
