I Don’t Mind is the latest track off Melbourne’s Twerps‘ forthcoming LP, Range Anxiety. I’m a big fan of these guys, and their charming slacker rock, and this latest track just reiterates why I like them so much. Quaint, cool and seemingly effortless, I Don’t Mind is another example of why these guys are onto something seriously good here.
Lead singer Marty Frawler sings in his token drawl, “I don’t mind if you stay / I don’t mind if you go” against a backdrop of sleepy guitar, drums and a quiet tambourine. As it plods along, the song begins to quicken and swell, building up to a much louder and more emphatic place. The ebb and flow of I Don’t Mind juxtaposed with the effortless nature of the track puts Twerps a step above similar acts, as it highlights the underlying talent and skill the Melbournians possess.
Twerps recently supported The War On Drugs at one of their shows when they were in the country late last year, and they are about to support none other than Belle & Sebastian on their upcoming Australian tour. They’re also headed over to the US in March, so it shouldn’t be too long ’til they’re making you sway at a venue near you!
