Twin Atlantic have announced their brand new album Transparency - out January 7th - marking the start of a new chapter in the Scots’ prolific career.
‘Transparency’ is Sam McTrusty spilling his guts on everything from marriage, male friendship and the absurdity of social media to parenthood, medication and his mum. Written in strained circumstances and recorded remotely with Sam’s mate and mentor Jacknife Lee, the album arrived more by accident than design when the world went into lockdown last spring. ‘Young’ is a finger-pointing, post-Brexit rant at people who vote without considering the consequences. ‘Dirty’ is a piss-take of Sam himself, the singer in a band sipping Champagne who would have appalled his younger self. The Talking Heads-y ‘Dance Like Your Mother’ is about being in a rock band who want their fans to dance, and ‘Instigator’ deals with the pressure he feels as a frontman.
Sam says; “After the challenges put in front of everyone in 2020 and 21 I did what I’ve always done in moments of turmoil, stress or anxiety and started to write songs. It slowly evolved into an album and something we feel puts a new stamp on our band which really excites us.”
