“A heavy dose of dark, layered, almost psychedelic folk”
Twin Limb is a band from Louisville, Kentucky formed in 2013 by Maryliz Bender (percussion, vocals) and Lacey Guthrie (accordion, vocals). The band gained additional member, Kevin Ratterman (sampled sounds, guitar, percussion), in 2014. Twin Limb’s sound has been described as “a heavy dose of dark, layered, almost psychedelic folk”, and is anchored by a bass-heavy, droning accordion, drum beats that run the gamut between feeling military-like and tribal, and tight vocal harmonies. Post-punk/experimental guitar work and dreamy, dark layers of sampled sounds complete the experience.
"I'll be real: I have no idea what Twin Limb sounds like. I can tell you based on the above picture that they will feature ladies, probably of the singing variety, and an accordion, but I can't tell you anything beyond that. So I'll make it up. Hailing from an alternate reality where accordions are the universal language, Twin Limb are the heroes of their dimension. Originally high school do-nothings, the two were met by a lovable, time traveling so-and-so who via a series of misadventures involving the duo themselves time traveling, taught the pair to "be excellent to each other." This wisdom was imparted on the world after the great Battle of the Bands that Twin Limb won, at which time hover boards and jet packs were widely distributed to the citizens of Earth that everyone may be equally radical. Twin Limb were stranded on our plane of existence shortly after they defeated the quantum bear invasion of 2028, and hope that through their gift of excellence to the planet that they can find a way home." -Never Nervous, 11/5/13
