Twin Beds is a band from Pennsylvania that consists of John Clark (lead vocals/guitar), Jack Einhorn (bass/vocals) and Zach Jaworski (drums/vocals). The band released Passivity which is a four-song EP.
The EP is demo quality and very lo-fi. It sounds raw and reminded me of the sound quality I used to get when I recorded my band in college. The snare has no snap, the vocals desperately need to be properly treated and there is very little separation between the instruments. Despite the recording quality the band gives you an idea of their sound with this EP.
The band plays in pop punk on their first song with lyrics that are more related to young relationships. He sings, “but you ruined my birthday but you made it up the next year 'cause you lost your boyfriend and I lost my curfew that month on the fourth of July.” The song revolves around basic chords, a steady bass and drums.
“Forgetting” is a little more fast paced with effective vocal harmonies. It’s a fairly catchy song that is simple and easy to appreciate. Up next is “Plan Ahead” which slows things down and is more emotionally resonant at first. It does speed up relatively quickly. “Letting” was even more lo-fi than everything that came before it.
The band seems like they haven't been around for a long time. The songs feel very influenced and familiar to plenty of other bands in this genre. I think the band does have some technical talent but if the band hopes to compete with the best acts in this genre there will have to be some big steps forward in a number of areas like production and being able to create a signature sound which they don't have yet.
