The Taylor Twins – El Capitan
With just two singles to their name, The Taylor Twins have earned the support of Radio X and Wonderland, adding to the initial backing they received under the name Butterfly, which included Radio 1, 6 Music, Ruben Nielson (Unknown Mortal Orchestra), Sean Ono Lennon, Willie J Healey, Mystery Jets, Dave Gregory (XTC) and Rodney Bingenheimer. Now The Taylor Twins – Ollie (vocals/guitar) and Eddie (vocals/bass) – continue their colourful, multi-genre adventures with their new single El Capitan, via their own Rørvig Records. The track finds the 22-year-olds diving into a kaleidoscopic melting pot of muscular alt-rock, exuberant power pop and stylish psychedelia. It’s a sound which is sweet and stinging in each measure, their space-age synths, celestial harmonies and raucous riffs bringing a flash of effervescent colour as winter approaches.
