Twin Caverns are a Sydney two-piece that have been on my radar since the end of last year. The duo, consisting of Michael Macias and Louise Millar are creating really soulful, down-tempo guitar-infused electronic with an honest, enchanting depth to it. Over the past few months they’ve scored opening slots for the likes of Vancouver Sleep Clinic, Willow Beats, The Kite String Tangle and Thief.
Every track they’ve released so far has really hit the right spot for me – gorgeous vocals, emotive beats, husky melodies and a beat that really captivates you. Their latest single Drown is released today, and once again, I’ve been blown away. Listen to it right here:
Perfect for lovers of The xx, London Grammar and James Blake, these guys really, honestly are worth keeping an eye out for. Want more proof? Have a listen to their visceral, guitar-infused trip-hoppy debut Swell, and their breathtaking cover of Bon Iver’s Hinnom, TX.
