Hook & The Twin Announce Debut Album 'Never Ever Ever'

British duo Hook & The Twin have announced they will released their long awaited debut album titled 'Never Ever Ever' on 24th June through Dancing Coins.

Our very good friends Marcus Efstratiou and Tom Havelock, caught our attention back in 2009 with their first single 'Race for the Bone', and then they just killed us with their second brilliant, catchy single "Bang Bang Cherry", which peaked at #3 in our Best Tracks of 2009 chart. 2011 saw the band release two new great singles "Tribes" and "We’re So Light", both -along with Bang Bang Cherry- included on their forthcoming album. 

In a recent interview about talking what to expect from the album they said: "10 songs strung over a series of detailed, psych-infused electric atmospheres - some of them pretty stripped back and brutal, some of them layered up into full-on hypnosis sessions. But there always a song at the heart of things. If you give it a full spin through all 10 songs, we hope it’s a big ride."

About the recording process, they explained: "We did a lot of moving round between different people’s studios and houses, harvesting little pieces of sound from instruments we liked. And there were a few odd buildings we managed to get into for a couple of days at a time - like an empty theatre where we recorded a lot of the vocals. Then we took it all to Andy Ramsay’s studio, went wading through the tapes and started trying to tie the thing together."

Their 10-track debut album will be available through all the usual digital outlets, and you now pre-order it on their Bandcamp page and get an advance of the first track 'That Was A Day', which is part of our current playlist www.koolrockradio.com. The  single version of 'That Was A Day' will be released on 10th June.

The tracklist for Never Ever Ever is as follows:

01. That Was A Day
02. We're So Light
03. Animals
04. Bang Bang Cherry
05. Stone
06. They'll Get Your Head
07. Tribes
08. Recklessly
09. Love Your Own Way

7. Hachiko

Speaking of the EP, Tatum has said: "This is a record that happened very fast for me. We had just gotten back from a particularly long European tour last November, our first supporting 'Nocturne', and I was feeling a lot of things. I found myself struggling with what it meant to be a musician, with what music in general meant to me and what part I could possibly play in it. Playing the same songs every night for months left me bored with myself. But when I got home, for the first time in awhile it suddenly seemed that the pressure was off. We didn't have any tours planned for several months and I started to remember again why I love music in the first place. I listened to Brian Eno and David Bowie for weeks on end and felt like I was hearing them for the first time. I took a trip to Miami with my girlfriend. I visited my family. I felt free to try things musically that I would have stifled before. The songs on this EP were recorded over a 10 day period and are a reflection of this time. Of all the frustrations and successes and moments of peace in between."
