About this item

Twin Peaks are elated to announce their new album, Lookout Low,  via Communion Records. Where their last LP, 2016’s Down In Heaven, and 2017’s Sweet ‘17 Singles compilation were adventurous and compelling updates on their youthfully raucous formula, their fourth album, Lookout Low feels like a total revolution. Their most deliberate and seamless record yet, the album is a collaborative triumph, propelled forward by Twin Peak’s near-decade-long bond.

For Lookout Low, the five of them - guitarists Cadien Lake James and Clay Frankel, bassist Jack Dolan, multi-instrumentalist Colin Croom, and drummer Connor Brodner - committed to work countless hours in their studio and practice space. Meeting daily, they demoed 27 songs and relentlessly rehearsed them, eventually whittling down to a select ten tracks.

The album was recorded at Monnow Valley with legendary producer Ethan Johns ((Paul McCartney, Kings of Leon, Laura Marling, White Denim), who lauds Twin Peaks as “the best Rock and Roll band I’ve heard for a very long time.” Already a well-oiled live unit, the band’s mission was to capture the exhilarating vibe of their shows. Often, they thrived on the thrill of live recording, going with the magic of the original first take. This life-affirming burst of adrenaline seeps into every facet of the LP. 

STAFF COMMENTS

Barry says: You may have heard the standout single 'Dance Through It', but if not, it's a feel-good slice of rich feel-good instrumentals perfectly balanced with smooth vocals and sleazy wurlitzer. The rest of 'Lookout Low' is just as superb, ranging from more relaxed soul-led pieces to giant party anthems.
