Hook And The Twin Launch 'Never Ever Ever' Album On 8th July 2013

Hook & The Twin are set to release their highly anticipated 10 track debut album Never Ever Ever on the 7th July 2013 through new indie label Dancing Coins.

Hook & The Twin are drummer Marcus Efstratiou and singer/writer/multi-instrumentalist Tom Havelock. Friends since childhood, the pair started playing in bands together from the age of 15, honing their skills as a restless, Kraut-locked rhythm section. The seeds of HOOK & THE TWIN were sown during long late-night sessions in their woodland rehearsal room, when Tom would layer distorted melodies and drones over Marcus' drumming using an array of instruments and effects pedals, creating mantra-like arcs of sound over which they strung their uniquely deformed pop songs.

Previous singles Bang Bang Cherry, Tribes and We're So Light gained great support from the likes of Zane Lowe, Rob Da Bank and Steve Lamacq along with praise from publications including The Independent, Clash and Drowned in Sound. Along the way they've played with Everything Everything, Django Django and Post War Years, and performed at The Great Escape, Secret Garden Party and Offset festivals to name a few - as well as a packed headline show at France's notorious Transmusicales festival.

Never Ever Ever was written and recorded in various unexpected locations in and around London: a vast empty concrete basement; an abandoned school theatre; and right underneath a nocturnal Nigerian church in full flow on a Peckham industrial estate. The album was produced with Andy Ramsay (Stereolab, Add N to X) and mixed by rising producer Jim Anderson (Cold Specks, The Twilight Sad, 2:54). The album further includes production by Neil Davidge (Massive Attack) on track They'll Get Your Head.

The record conjures an English alt.pop landscape that is by turns spectral and anthemic - an exhilarating and multi-layered affair. With influences ranging from Can and Harmonia to Talk Talk and Matthew Dear, the album features a vast range of sounds, instruments and voices, as it moves from the woozy house of We're So Light, through the broad psychedelia of Stone, to Recklessly's slow pulsing atmospherics. These tracks, along with current new single, the synth-driven That Was A Day, translate the Hook & The Twin sound perfectly: big spacious sounds, impeccable production and amazingly compelling vocals.

Never Ever Ever is set for release on the 7th of July  through Dancing Coins.
