In an age of electro-pop, over-produced, indie rock, Twin Berlin rebels against the passing fad to bring the revival of no-frills, in-your-face rock and roll.
In 2009, Twin Berlin was recognized by MTV, being nominated as the Best Breakout Boston band and playing a show on the 2009 VMA tour alongside All Time Low and The White Tie Affair. Consequently, Twin Berlin was launched into Comcast’s “On Demand” air time, and into rotation on Boston’s biggest indie/alternative radio station, WFNX.
By 2010, Twin Berlin had broken out against the conventional indie-dance circuit, earning a reputation for a rabid, powerful live show. Garnering attention from the local press, Boston Music Spotlight named Twin Berlin as one of the eleven bands to watch for in 2011. They couldn’t have been any closer to the truth.
While recording new material in the studio (2011) Mikey Welsh, formerly of the band Weezer, stepped in to create the cover art. But, before the recordings could even be finished, Travis Barker of Blink-182 became involved and selected Twin Berlin as the winner of Guitar Center’s “Your Next Record” competition, inviting them to record with him in Los Angeles.
Twin Berlin released the much-anticipated There Goes My Virtue (produced by Barker) in February 2012. The EP features the single “Can’t Take, Take, Take” and was released to rave reviews with Audio Perv calling the release “three songs of energetic rock that fuels your soul, pinches your neck, kicks your ass and says ‘you’re welcome!’” The band continued to turn heads that summer catching the attention of Boston’s Radio 929 and being invited to play alongside Third Eye Blind, Spin Doctors, Switchfoot and Eve 6 at their Earthfest celebration at the Hatch Shell in Boston.
With the calendar turning over to a new year Twin Berlin have hit the ground running. After an appearance on NBC’s “Dception” and a new album on the horizon, Twin Berlin are showing no signs of slowing down.
