Twinkranes & Thread Pulls play Whelans on Saturday June 25th and there’s free tickets to be won right here.
Thread Pulls are part rock band, stripped back to a core of drums and bass. Skewed grooves anchor their hypnotic proto-disco sound – kick-drum centred and sub-bass heavy. Roughly cut vocal layers and eastern trumpet-echoes coupling solar-synth-drones bring to mind early elements of future sounds. Having acquired a considerable reputation for their raw, energetic live shows and limited EP releases, they released their debut album New Thoughts to critical acclaim at home and abroad on Irish independent label OSAKA recordings at the end of 2010, followed by extensive touring in Ireland, UK, Europe and Scandinavia.
Twinkranes specialise in coded psychedelia and zone out progressive pop music. In November 2009 the Dublin based electronic outfit released their debut long player – “Spektrumtheatresnakes” to critical acclaim. The LP melds the worlds of motor driven kraut, space rock, psychedelia, drone and avant pop.
