TorinOggi releases a splendid interview with Twang, filled with interesting insights and a peek at their future.
Many thanks to Federica Monello for the article!
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! 🙂
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.
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)…
FRIDAY 20TH OCTOBER 2017,
PIAZZA CHIESA DELLA SALUTE 17/D
A night of indie arts at Borgo Vitttoria (Turin) with music and visual arts live.
The place is nice, the music too: Twang will be playing for the season opening of the historic Il Salotto di Mao! You can see us there in the evening of August 29 at Piazza Vittorio Veneto! You can also watch the whole thing streaming on CortoCorto’ s Facebook page.
“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”.
You can find the full review and Q&A here:
Various magazines on the web reported our first EP’s debut.
We want to thank ‘em all:
Fatti Italiani, Hot Music Magazine, Musica Italiana Emergente, Italia di Metallo, I Think Magazine, Mescalina, Gruppi Emergenti, System Failure, Rockit.
Hope we got them all covered.
Sincere thanks from Twang!

As we said, big thrills:

Twang are a band from Turin, Italy, formed in the late 2015: five young musician, with different experiences and attitudes, started up an intense collaboration and a huge tour on various stages in Piedmont (such as Spazio 211 and the “Balla coi Cinghiali” festival).
Their musical proposal is a bluesy and psychedelic stoner rock, along with Italian lyrics.
In May 2017, they won the “Best Rock Band” prize of the national contest called “Senza Etichetta”; the jury was led by the great songwriter Mogol.
“Nulla si può controllare” is their first ep; it was released on 30 June 2017, early anticipated by the single “Neanche un colpo”.
